Enjoy incredible food and views from 34 storeys up.
Liverpool is brimming with bars offering insane views of the city and beyond, but this restaurant not only boasts an impressive panoramic viewpoint but has a new menu to match. During a five-month hiatus (thanks, lockdown), executive chef of Panoramic 34, Elliot Hill, has been making his mark on the menu by updating it with a series of expertly crafted plates on the a la carte, tasting, lunch and afternoon tea menus. And now, you can finally get a taste of both freedom and fantastic food.
Panoramic 34 is committed to using local produce where possible and their new summery menu reflects British seasonality with dishes such as their Liverpool Bay sea bass, Jersey Royal potatoes, courgette, dill, almond and vermouth. You’ll also find a seasonal fruit dessert of gooseberry, lavender, honey, ginger and crème fraiche also available on the current tasting menu.
As for their lunch menu, Panoramic 34 serves up refreshing starter dishes like chalk stream trout served with gingerbread, cucumber, sorrel and radish alongside Creedy Carver duck with pickled peach, raw beetroot, goats curd and coriander. The restaurant also offers specially crafted vegan and vegetarian menus to cater to all dietary requirements, featuring the likes of lightly spiced and pickled carrot, Burt’s blue cheese, barley and nasturtium, as well as braised broccoli stalk, black garlic, peanuts and kale for main course.
Other standout mains include cod loin served with colourful Isle of Wight tomatoes, vanilla and basil, plus salt aged Cumbrian beef with anchovy, yoghurt and turnip cooked in beef dripping. And of course, you can’t leave Panoramic 34 without dessert. You’ll find summery sweets featuring seasonal fruit such as strawberries and apricots, as well as decadent desserts like their Valrhona dark chocolate pudding with a miso salted caramel centre on a cocoa puffed rice base- it’s Coco Pops but magnificently elevated.
Panoramic 34 is the perfect setting if you’re in search of a new date night destination or looking to celebrate a special occasion. The restaurant serving sleek dishes and views across the Mersey also serves up an enviable afternoon tea to enjoy with family and friends. Guests can enjoy a glass of rosé sparkling wine, Champagne or one of five unique cocktails including Liverpool inspired drink- Berry Cross the Mersey- a mix of gin, elderflower, blackberry, tonic and crème de mûre.
Panoramic 34’s afternoon tea has a selection of sandwiches on various breads such as focaccia or sourdough buns filled with the likes of ham hock and apple or cucumber, cream cheese and mint. Sweets on the afternoon tea menu include lemon and sunflower praline slice; pistachio and chocolate macaroon; strawberry and elderflower cheesecake; rhubarb fool; and of course fruit scones served with jam and clotted cream.
As one of the UK’s highest restaurants, Panoramic 34 offers virtually 360° views and was built around the West Tower’s huge windows which show the city skyline and out across the Mersey.
