About Lunya Liverpool

Description brought to you by Manchester Confidential:

World-class Catalan deli and restaurant

Lunya has caused a stir in the North West. Selling and serving serious Catalan produce - from chocolate-cast sardines to lively young “Joven” red wines - the deli section includes aged Mahon cheese from Menorca, overflowing bowls of citrusy olives, crackers, tiny pimientos de Padrón and many more. The wine and tapas bar is a place to hang out, with snacks and full-bodied meals on offer. Just don’t expect Spanish standards in a venue known for signature dishes like tortilla de Scouse (lamb stew), Catalan-spiced potted Southport Bay shrimp, stew with morcilla and chorizo or croquetas with oxtail and horseradish mousse. Bring eight mates along for a suckling pig feast or simply order lots of little dishes to share. Spiced cauliflower and Manchego fritters and Mackerel Conception (mackerel semen and eggs on toast) are highlights of the small plates selection. Owned by a local businessman (Peter Kinsella) who fell in love with Barcelona in 1999, it’s got labour of love written all over.

Review by Manchester Confidential's Neil McQuillan
15/20
Just pronouncing the proliferation of Spanish and Catalan terms and place names made our mouths water in anticipation and slobber in consternation. None more so than esqueixada, with its salty consonants and incredibly tangy taste. Here, olives, peppers and onions are mixed with salt cod that is “cooked” in a sherry vinegar dressing. It triggered some hugely enjoyable mouth-puckering.

Great time at Lunya. Food was delicious and good size portions. Service was friendly but a couple of employees not very knowledgeable re the menu. Maybe some training needed. Overall though a fab experience during our short trip to Liverpool. Would recommend!

We had a lovely evening celebrating our son's 20th Birthday - and a fantastic waitress. Just for info - when I made the booking online - I was asked for any special notes or requirements and I said it was a birthday celebration - but this was not followed up on the evening. We love Lunya!

Well cooked food. Only gripe was the quiet and unfriendly service. Ignored when waiting to be seated, no goodbyes when leaving.

Slow start but improved when more staff came on. Calamari, Russian salad, padron peppers, scouse, morcilla excellent. Gambas pil pil a bit bland. Bread superb. Caparinha a bit small and weak for the price.

Went with friends ( their first visit ) our 4th in about 2 months and they like my wife and myself thoroughly enjoyed it. The food is excellent and the way we were looked after was brilliant. By the way our friends are now converted.

Great place to eat with the family. Food was good (we had tapas) and portions were just right, too. All the staff were helpful, efficient and cheerful. The place was spotlessly clean.

We had a lovely evening at Lunya. Great food and wine made more enjoyable by the friendly and knowledgeable service. We hope to return when we are next in Liverpool.

It was my first time to Lunya. I liked the decor and atmosphere, unfortunately the tapas was really mixed quality and I considered it really overpriced for what we had. Competition is fierce for dining and my expectations are that food will be excellent.

The food was good if a little pricey, but the service was poor, a fact acknowledged by the waitress. We were not offered a drink on arrival, when we eventually ordered a jug of sangria it was stood on the bar for over 5 minutes. The barman was waving at staff behind us to bring it to our table, to no avail. I even stopped a passing waitress and asked "can we have that sangria please?" pointing to the jug on the bar, She said "Yes, ok" and then carried on walking in the opposite direction. We ordered some bread and oil expecting this to arrive before our tapas; the oils arrived but the bread was only delivered after we had to ask for it again and it arrived after our first tapas.
