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 had a really lovely experience at Lunya, the food was great and the staff were attentive. We were quite nervous going for dinner (we've not been out during the pandemic) but we were put at ease as soon as we entered.

This was our first meal out since lock down. The quality of food was great, the service from our waiter was great (lewis I think). We weren't rushed out once our meal was finished. We were able to relax and have a drink out side once we finished our meal.

We have visited Lunya on many occasions over the years, however this was our 1st visit following your post lockdown re-opening. We wanted to come and support your business through this difficult time however despite having our own reservations about visiting any restaurant so soon after the end of lockdown, we were put at ease straight away by the safety measures put in place. The food was fantastic as usual and we are looking forward to returning soon. We wish you all the best. Thanks

Our first visit since Lunya reopened. Food was as good as ever; absolutely love the sea bass sliders.Social distancing is respected and it feels safe. Deli full of products. Well done Lunya for keeping going. We used the online shopping facility during lockdown and it was perfect.

So pleased to be able to go back to Lunya. Well done for having kept up the take-away business during lockdown. The quality of the food is the same high standard as always.

The food was very good and enjoyed each bite, however it felt a bit rushed, and one of the members of staff (male) that served us was quite rude, didn’t check if the food was okay when paying the bill, and came across very disinterested and abrupt.

We had a lovely meal yesterday and we felt safe. The staff kept their distance, we missed chatting to them but preferred that they were safe. Bought goodies to take home in the shop. It was mum and dads first outing in 3months and cheered them up no end!

The team are great and the food as always amazing so happy to see you open again. The only downside is as a mancunian we will miss you but I guess that's what the M62 was built for.

Our first choice restaurant following lockdown and it didn't disappoint! Food was fresh, delicious and authentic as always Couldn't be happier with our choice to celebrate the lockdown being relaxed, especially considering the extra precautions that have been added to keep us all safe.

Lovely food and venue. We are still social distancing so it is not exactly normal setting. The deli section is not fully stocked to former glory, but I still bought vacuum packed octopus and cooking chorizo. Can't wait to use them in my cooking.
