Best for Cheap eats - Expert review of Delifonseca

A great deli with a laid-back restaurant upstairs.

Candice Fonseca's interest in and committment to good food is clear as soon as you enter her well-stocked, late-opening deli in the city centre. Upstairs, the modest but funky restaurant makes full use of all the great ingredients stocked downstairs in sandwiches, salads and platters, and also offers a handful of main course specials chalked up on a blackboard.

Food and drink: 

Good, simple food with Mediterranean influences is the order of the day at Delifonseca, with a lot of things, including pies and sauces, made in-house. It would be difficult not to find something delicious here and they really know how to sell it - the menu is a tempting read.

Recommended dishes: 

Any of the deli platters are a great choice, as are the hot specials.


Laid-back, the kind of place you can read the papers in.  


I've always been well looked-after, without any fuss.


Stanley Street isn't the most attractive corner of town, but it's handy for the Metquarter shopping centre, where good food is hard to find.

Price advice: 

Sandwiches are around £8, but that includes enough chips and salad to make it a proper carby meal.

Other useful branches: 

There's a bigger branch at Brunswick Dock, but it's not as handy.
