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.

Friendly, polite and happy staff. Christmas set menu was varied and tasty. Would have been nice to have some music.

Lovely authentic looking restaurant. After a long wait I had to ask for our drinks to be brought to the table from the bar where they had been sat for ages. We had the lunch tapas which was nice except for the meatballs which were a little bit cold and there were only 4 of them. There were lots of staff in the restaurant but very few appeared to be serving the tables during our visit.

The most authentic Spanish cuisine in town! Plus, all served with a smile. Well done, we’ll be back.

Good food, good atmosphere but I didn't like the £40 discretionary service charge that was added to the bill! Bit sneaky. I asked for it to be removed.

I took 9 people for a Xmas meal and they all have raved about it, majority only having tapas for first time. Service is also great

I have been going to Lunya for years now, both in Liverpool and Manchester. Always thought it was a great place to meet friends and have a quality relaxed eating experience. This is the first time I have gone to the new location and wow was I disappointment. On first arrival, to ensure there would be no issues with payments, I checked with the manager, Ian, that my £100 gift card would be accepted. He stated that it was not on the system however as the system wasn’t workiing well but he would honour it anyway. After sitting down we were bombarded by different members of staff with the same questions. it was like they weren’t speaking to each other or had all been allocated the same small area to manage. We honestly felt we were being rushed and I asked if they were expecting the table back after only 20 minutes of us being there. The food was way off the standard of previous visits and based on this occasion I believe other restaurants in the area now offer better. Overall we were left very disappointed in the whole experience.

We seemed to be in a dead zone for waiting staff and had to prompt them for drinks, food orders and for our bill. Meanwhile people who’d arrived after us but sat nearer to service points (tills) were served before us.

Great food and drink we had a great evening. It was early and I am sure it would be lively as it filled up. Highly recommend a visit.
