Unlock Liverpool were invited to the VIP launch of Maray Royal Albert Dock. From delicious dishes to frozen rose wine, Liverpool is in for a treat!
Can you get a better location than this? I really don’t think so! The sweeping views of the dock, the atmosphere and the charming character of the Royal Albert Dock architecture, this new location is just perfect. Let’s not forget about it’s amazing heritage too, which the people of Liverpool really are so proud of. Walking along the cobbles on our way to the launch, the Albert Dock was bustling with people from all walks of life. From locals enjoying a cold drink in the sun, to tourists taking in the sights.
Walking into Maray we were met by the most amazing aromas of spices, garlic and fresh bread. We were welcomed with a cold flute of Prosecco and a smiling face and showed inside. The wooden decor and white hanging shades keep the famous Albert dock feel going on inside this amazing venue.
The layout of this restaurant is perfect! It may be busy with people during the launch, but there was still room to find a seat or stand and chat at the bar. There are high tiled tables and stools, wooden tables along the back with long couches and a long tiled table with stools directly looking into the open kitchen. The chefs were excellent, cooking delicious dishes all night for us to try.
The DJ was playing and the bar was fully stocked ready for an amazing night, we were introduced to a drink that we have never tasted before “the frose” which is a frozen rose wine. Yes it was as good as it sounds, and we sipped on gin cocktails and wine throughout the evening. The bar staff were not phased with the demand on the night and were smiling, professional and knew exactly what to recommend.
The food was unreal, from the cauliflower covered in spices, coriander and pomegranate , to the falafel, hummus and salad. perfect vegan food. We also tasted the most delicious lamb kofta with tahini and pine nuts which was delicious. You are transported to a far away country with these amazing smells and flavours at Maray.
We were so impressed with this evening and this restaurant! It’s certainly the place to be this summer. We want to take family and friends young and old here to show them what real food and flavour is all about. The staff really do add to the incredible feel here, and are so professional and happy to help. For more information head to the Royal Albert Dock’s website.
