This is the first on our list of the more alternative eating venues around Liverpool.

Kimos on Mount Pleasant is a relaxing venue that serves Mediterranean/North African food, vegetarian and non-vegetarian. A friendly atmosphere, the first impression that hits you is the luxuriant and exotic decor, in a darkish but well lit atmosphere of beautiful lanterns and exotic seating areas, which include relaxing cushions with traditional tables made from mosaic tile and iron, as well as more formal wooden tables and chairs.

Kimos is a good place to eat for most people. It has a vast array of foods at a reasonable price. There is a seating area for families and children, a few baby highchairs also available, disabled access and toilets. The place is clean and well supervised. We didn’t wait long for our food to arrive. I had a baked potato and Nigel had a Hawaiian burger, both tasted good and filled us up. There was a wide range of choice of meals including snacks such as sandwiches with a variety of fillings, as well as a variety of teas and cakes.

Alcohol is not sold. Takeaways are phone orders only. No credit cards. Downstairs there is a function room with plenty of space, a nice atmosphere which can be booked for celebration buffets and various functions, formal or more casual, such as birthdays, parties, conferences etc.

Once of my favourite dishes at Kimos is the vegetarian breakfast which is always delicious, healthy and filling. For main meals you can have a more traditional dish such as Molokhia, a traditional Egyptian dish consisting of spinach in garlic, cumin and tomatoes and served with rice and salad, available as a chicken or vegetarian option. Other traditional dishes are also served. Kimos opens at, Monday to Sunday. Last orders are at 10.45 pm. Breakfasts and paninis are served until 5pm.

Kimos is an ideal restaurant for an evening out with friends, casual drop in or even for a romantic meal in the evening as the restaurant is divided into two parts, one part more private and slightly darker atmosphere than the main area.

Overall we were impressed with Kimos. We would give it a three star rating.
