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.

Crispy chicken was very dry but the house red was very good for the price. Good atmosphere and was fairly busy for a Tuesday evening. Waiting staff friendly and efficient.

£5.40 for a pint of Alhambra lager and £7.40 for a gin and tonic is way too expensive and came as a shock. We stayed after the meal and had a drink and didn't realise the prices and it made a big difference to the bill. Our bill for family of four came to £170.00 including drinks. Service very good.

Such lovely, welcoming staff and the best, most authentic food I have had outside of Spain (actually better than some of the tapas I have had in Spain and I go there a lot as my Mum lives there!) We went with two young children who also loved the foood and despite my three year old smashing a glass and spilling a whole drink everywhere, the staff were so good with them and very understanding. We will definitely be back! The shop is also fantastic!

Food was excellent. Service equally as good - especially as we arrived half-an-hour ahead of the booked time on a busy Friday night. We were seated promptly, served smartly and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. A little pricey - £75 for two - but nonetheless a fine meal. Thank you

Our waiter was an absolute delight and really proactive in making recommendations to us. He was also very persuasive when it came to up-selling, but we didn't mind because he helped make the experience a really great one. The wait for food wasn't long at all, and wow was it delicious. While initially I thought the prices were a bit steep, the food was utterly worth it. The atmosphere was great, lively and relaxed, and the restaurant was beautiful. We'll definitely go back, it's instantly become one of my favourite places to dine out!

First time to Lunya on Saturday by recommendation. Service and staff knowledge of food intolerances great. Food quality good, but very disappointed with the amount of food received for the cost. ie anchovies @£12 for 4 anchovies - grossly over priced!!! Catalan scouse contained one small piece of chorizo- very disappointing. House salad could hardly see the tuna. Will not be coming back, which is a shame as atmosphere and quality amazing. Just did not find our visit value for money!!!

Great food, great drink & great staff. I’ve been to the Liverpool Lunya several times, in both your new location and your old one. Can’t wait to see your next place in the docks (good luck with it)

We had a fab time at Lunya. The food was delicious and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. We would definitely go back. We are hoping they get round to opening a Lunya in Newcastle as we are not from Liverpool so wouldn't be able to visit regularly :)

Had dinner on a Saturday evening at Lunya. Place was very busy and noisy and tables are every close to each other. Ordered 3 dishes per person + bread and a snack to start with. The snack and bread were brought together with the 2 vegetable dishes immediately. About 2-3 minutes later we got the other 4 dishes. So, within 5 minutes we had ALL the food on the table which very bad timing for tapas. By the time we got around to eating the meat dishes they were cold! What a shame as the meat tasted good. The food was tasty in general and the service was good but what a poor timing for a tapas restaurant. The restaurant menu says that they will split dishes up and bring them as they are ready and in a sequence that keeps your table top manageable and pace the dishes out. They definitely did not keep our table top manageable and DID NOT PACE the dishes.

Love the new restaurant! Much bigger, but that does not detract from the excellent service and food. The atmosphere in Lunya has always been special, but the new Liverpool venue has definitely increased the energy, style and the enjoyment. The food is amazing and as a vegetarian, I love the wide array of choices I'm given.
