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.

We ordered a lot of food for 4 people for a dinner. We believe the restaurant aims to source great quality of food. We think the seafood taste very fresh. We were slightly disappointed with the saltiness of certain dishes, especially the paella. But staff was very helpful, enthusiast and lovely!

Wonderful service, and great attention to detail. I was delighted and surprised at the attention the staff had paid to the note I left when making the booking. It is the first time I have dined at Lunya, and I will definitely be coming back. Thank you!

Made to feel very welcome as soon as we arrived. Tapas menu choices were amazing and the dishes we chose delicious. Service great, staff really friendly and helpful. Highly recommend Lunya for a great night out. Next time we’re in Liverpool would love to visit again and try some of the other Tapas dishes.

Great food prepared and served by very efficient and friendly staff . Obviously the location could be better as there are unfortunate people who have nowhere else to to live / sleep in plain view and the general public feel it necessary to check what your clientele is doing .

Fifth or sixth visit but first time for a couple of years. The quality of food was still as good as ever, but was sorely lacking in terms of service unfortunately. I like being left to enjoy my food but the following issues cropped up - Finished bottle of wine mid meal and had to call someone over to see the drink menu. Got the drinks menu and then no-one came back for 20 mins despite trying to signal to staff. Waited 15 mins having been given the dessert menu before being asked to order. Worst of all, we had the gourmet banquet and did not get get the sea bass sliders, shoulder of pig or gambas pil pil. Instead we were given albondigas and some chicken. At no point we we told why we would get less or different food and we watched other tables get served the sliders and gambas at different points so it wasn’t an availability issue. If the staff had been rushed off their feet I’d have understood a bit more, but it was relatively quiet where we were. Disappointed if I’m honest as had been a real favourite from previous visits....

Very nice food and drink. Service was slow initially and it took a while to get someone to take our order. However once the order was placed we quickly were brought our drinks and our tables assortment of plates were brought out in a steady flow. The food was good with the Albondigas and the chick pea dishes particularly nice.

Apart from the fact that the food is lovely and the service is great, we really like Lunya because of it's inclusive attitude to coeliacs. Many restaurants offer gluten free options, but are unaware of issues such as cross-contamination. At Lunya, the serving and kitchen staff are obviously well trained in what coeliacs need. But importantly, they treat it as completely normal, which makes a huge change! My daughters were delighted to have such a wide choice of dishes, which we could all share. Thank you!

It was very busy on the night so the staff coped pretty well with that. Food was really good. It is a little expensive for what it is but the competition are exactly the same so from a business perspective, we can’t complain here. Really good overall.

There was a wide range of tapas dishes to choose from that were delicious and of an excellent quality. The service was good and even though the restaurant was busy and we were a big table, our dishes were served really quickly by pleasant and courteous staff.
