Queens Liverpool’s hidden gem is celebrating its fifth anniversary

Vaseline 1 month ago

Queens, a hidden gem in the center of Liverpool, is celebrating its 5th anniversary! Perhaps the definition of a hidden gem, this quaint wine bar and bistro is tucked away off the beaten track on picturesque Queen Avenue, just off Castle Street.

At Queens you can enjoy excellent breakfasts, lunch specials, a seasonal a la carte menu, mouth-watering Sunday roasts and a constantly changing selection of specialty wines. The restaurant is open 7 days a week. Some have compared it to a backstreet bistro in Paris, so much so that you could easily lose yourself and forget that you are in the center of Liverpool.

Queens Avenue, home to artisan shops such as wineries and art galleries, is much more relaxed than Castle Street and Dale Street, where activity moves at a fast pace. One of Liverpool, Queens’ best kept secrets is here. It has a cool private dining area in the basement, a warm and inviting dining area, a great atmosphere and friendly staff.

A la carte options such as cod tenderloin and ricotta, as well as lunch specials such as steak frites and pork belly, are all available at Queens. The restaurant’s well-chosen and elegant menu is constantly changing. The selection of wines is provided by the nearby wine specialist shop R & H Fine Wines, whose Sunday roasts are particularly delicious!

About their 5th anniversary, co-owner Lucas said:

“We opened five years ago in a hidden backstreet in the city center and if you’re not on the high street with natural footfall, you have to work extra hard to make a name for yourself. People didn’t just come to us.”

“To open 7 days a week while being hidden from the rest of the city center is against all expectations, but fortunately our quality is clearly reflected. When people come here for the first time, they usually come back and tell others about us. It feels great to still be here after five years.”

Queens is a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city center and forget the stress of everyday life. It is hidden on a quiet and pleasant boulevard. Many who discovered it now consider it their favorite because it is endearing and charismatic without being pretentious.

A diner recently said:

“This small restaurant offers beautifully prepared dishes, accompanied by good wine. We tried cauliflower steak, fried cod, pork belly and chicken. All elements on the plate tasted great. It was a culinary experience. Staff were attentive and friendly. I would highly recommend and visit again.”

Another said:

“The service and atmosphere in the restaurant were excellent and the proximity to the kitchen with advice on choices from the chef was a wonderful experience. We had a mix of starters between us and then chose main courses of lamb, bavette and chicken which were all delicious. The desserts were equally excellent. Queens is a real find and we will return to it as soon as possible.”
