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.

Critics Review
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.

I have coeliac disease and as such cannot tolerate any gluten in my diet. The staff at Lunya gave excellent advice and guidance and the chefs accommodated my dietary needs with no fuss at all. Fabulous food and service and made to feel very welcome and that my dietary requirements were no problem at all, very different to many other restaurants.

We always come to Libya when in Liverpool and are always delighted by the splendid food, excellent wines and always friendly service. Our experience in the restaurant Hans led us to buy and line. Truly wonderful

Even for tapas, the portion sizes were small (and charged at the price of raciones). That being said, the "catalan scouse" was delicious as was the morcilla and albondigas. The tortilla de patatas was probably one of the worst I've ever tasted unfortunately (no seasoning and the wrong texture)! An extra special thank you to our waiter who really took the time to speak to my handicapped uncle, the service across the board was excellent.

Fantastic meal and service once again from Lunya Liverpool! The tasting banquets are perfect if you can't decide what to get - great meat-free alternatives on the veggie banquet too.

Friendly prompt service, lovely food and very varied drinks selection. The decoration of the building makes you feel like you're on holiday. A few more menus on the table would be helpful.

Excellent food and service. We popped in for an early lunch, so there weren't many other diners - the atmosphere had built by the time we were leaving.

Staff need better training for phone enquiries. We booked by phone and specifically said we would like the vegan paella, which takes 45mins if you don't order it until you get to the restaurant. We were told this was fine and they had noted our request in our reservation. When we got to the restaurant, we were told they had ignored our request because you have to pay for any food ordered in advance. No one told us that when we made our booking. We would have paid in advance if only someone had told us! So now we have had two failed attempts to actually get to eat the vegan paella. The first time was when we found out you have to order it in advance, the second time, we did but were ignored. Do we have the will to try for a third time? P.S. they brought us the wrong sherry, but changed it straight away.

Came for partners 50th birthday and couldn't have had a better night. Everything was 'spot on' - great choice of food and wine to suite all budgets. We were quite lazy and chose the 'banquet', but it provided a great selection and was all delicious. Staff friendly (and knowledgeable about the menu) and made us feel really welcome. An excellent night. If we lived locally we'd be in all of the time!!

Having dined at Lunya several times before I actually prefer the old restaurant with the quiet bar downstairs. However the food and service is always good and that hasn’t changed.

Food was delicious, service was good apart from a mix up with one of the dishes, instead of an apology or a sorry for the misunderstanding we got a stroppy waiter for the rest of the meal, who was very irritated to have to serve us, the apology came once we went pay and he saw he wasn't getting a tip, classy

I feel that the overall quality of the food has declined in recent years. Last night my padron pepper dish consisted of 12 very small peppers. The chicken taco dish was left unbeaten by the whole party.
