‘Portugal on the Dee’: BoBo Restaurant opens in West Kirby

Steven Burgess and Josh Moore who run BoBo on Banks Road in West Kirby say they have been delighted by the support they have received since opening on August 17.

Situated on Banks Road, the Iberian eaterie serves homemade food inspired by traditional Portuguese and Spanish cuisine, including charcoal chicken which celebrates authentic Algarvian cooking techniques and flavour using a traditional Frango Piri-Piri from its origin in Guia, Albufeira.

The venue is described as ‘Portugal on the Dee’.

For Steven and Josh who run the award-winning BoBo wine bar and tasca on Liverpool’s Castle Street, the West Kirby restaurant is their first together having previously helped open many well-known venues across the city region.

Steven said: “Since receiving the keys, the reaction to the restaurant has been so positive and, since opening almost overwhelming.

“The number of people visiting has been phenomenal and we have enjoyed welcoming every single person through our doors and are looking forward to meeting even more.

“It has been hectic but exhilarating and a lot of credit must go to our hardworking staff. We are delighted with how our food has excited so many people, as well as being grateful for our customers’ patience as we find our feet in our new home.”

In opening BoBo, Steven and Josh have created 16 jobs, almost all of which have been filled by people from the immediate area.

BoBo is also sourcing its seafood, ice cream and flowers from within West Kirby, supplied by The Seafood Shack, The Ice Cream Shop and Eden Floral Design, while their fresh produce comes from other exceptional suppliers from across the city region.

Josh added: “We aim to be here for the long haul and it’s really important to us that we become part of the community, sourcing locally, delivering a great experience both for our customers and our staff and providing good jobs for Wirral people.

“We truly believe in what we do and we spend a lot of time thinking about the detail and our authenticity and will always tweak until it’s just right.

“We’ve only just begun but we promise that there’s a lot more to come from us.”
