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.

Fabulous food in a lovely atmosphere. Have eaten here 3 times now and never been disappointed. Hope to have a meal here when my daughter graduates in the summer!

I have eaten in Lunya before and always enjoyed the food. I requested a round table for 6 of us which was great. Unfortunately the service was not good. We had to wait a while for the food to arrive and to order more wine. Our waitress was rushed off her feet. The bread was served without oils and took 15 minutes to attract someones attention to ask for some. We sent back 3 dishes as they arrived 45 mins after we had eaten our other food.We still had a lovely time but it was obvious that there were not enough staff.

The food is always delicious at Lunya and the variety on the menu is great with a good selection of veggie and vegan options. I've never had a bad experience at Lunya and I love the locally sourced food too - the ham hock fritters were really tasty.

Have always enjoyed our visit to Lunya in Hanover St, Liverpool, very tasty food and beautiful wine, until yesterday.. For the first time, my friends and l were very disappointed in our specially planned Sunday afternoon lunch gathering for 3 of us. The food was very tasty, but our favourite bottle of wine that we ordered- had sold out, so had our 2nd favourite choice of wine and we by now were very disappointed, before we had even started! It began to feel like a guessing game of what wines they did have in stock?The waitress was apologetic but used the excuse that it had been a very busy day, the day before. But surely wine stocks should be adequate to reflect the wine list and the number of predicted and expected customers each day? Our next wine choice at £31 per bottle arrived with a different name and label to what we ordered, but the barman had passed on the message to us that the vineyard have changed the label recently and that it is exactly the same as what we ordered? We weren't convinced, but we tried this one and it was good.When it came to paying our bill, there were approx 20 customers at tables in the restaurant, so now a quiet time, but no staff available to ask for the bill. After 15 mins wait, we chose to leave our table and to ask the barman for our bill. It was an empty bar at that time and we just had to point to the table that we had been sitting at. Not the best customer experience.

Staff appeared disinterested. We noted one family that waited for a long time to get seated and were then ignored. Drinks took an age to come. We received only part of our order and the food tasted as though the chef had had an accident with the salt - especially on the house salad and Gambas Pil Pil. Much prefer Lunyalita on Albert Dock. Would not recommend.

Ok food, nothing special. But bad service! Sat almost 40 min after the “doorman” showed us the table, before the waiter took drink orders!
