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.

Lots of things on menu not available & all food arrived the wrong way around, eg; Jamon last to arrive with Hummus ( no flat bread). Very dissapionted as I have been a few times previously and everything was good. Lots of competition around in Liverpool and standards need to be good.

Booked to celebrate two birthdays with 6 people. When arrived got shown to a table of 5 and had an extra chair pushed in making it cramped. Asking the manager if we could use one of the two empty tables for six was told no they were booked and that our table was really a six. During the meal one table had a couple and their daughter sit at it (3 on a table for 6) and the other table remained completely empty. The waiter just stated it was the booking system and they could not do anything. We also had one allergy in the group which was stated on the booking which there was no recognition or assistance from the staff unlike on previous visits. We were made to feel unwelcome and we had to wait a long time for the last two dishes (felt like they had been forgotten about) and had to chase the waiter up three times. Not the birthday treat we had hoped for

Most of the dishes were excellent. I personally found the woodland mushrooms to be quite bland and the Belgian brownie was quite dry and crumbly. But everything else was amazing.

Very poor service. Waited 25 minutes before our drinks order arrived. Not enough staff and apart from one waitress, those that were serving didn't seem very interested at all. Been here many times before and quite disappointed really.

Given the current Covid situation Lunya still manages to make you feel welcome, safe and comfortable. Our waitress remembered us from our last visit which made us feel valued. The food was as ever tasty and the menu varied.

We have eaten at Lunya many times over the years, ordered food from them during lockdown and buy from the deli. We love their food and wanted to support them in this difficult time. The food was lovely. We arrived at the restaurant at 4:45 and our drinks order was promptly taken. We chose from the 3 tapas for £15.95 menu (available up until 5pm) and waited for the waitress to take our order. The waitress was very friendly, but when we gave her our order she said she’d have to check if we could still order from that menu. She checked and advised us that we were 1 minute too late and the menu was now unavailable. We understand there has to be a cut off, but felt this was slightly inflexible. We re-chose from the main menu. Among other dishes, we ordered bread with a choice of vinegar and oils. The bread arrived and we waited to be asked what vinegar and oil we would like. However, after 10 minutes or so, we asked for the oils and a dish with 3 ready poured oils was brought to us. We were fine with this as all the oils are lovely, but we saw other tables having the oil selection taken to their table. The above are only slight niggles, but not the Lunya we know and love.
