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.

I always enjoy eating at Lunya. A group of us came for lunch, and had a very good value meal. They also offer a free drink for breastfeeding mum's.

Drinks were a little slow arriving at the table, but everything else was superb.Two people in the party were not used to eating tapas and the very knowledgeable manager took a great deal of time helping and advising them on their choice of food, which was much appreciated.

We enjoyed a lovely family lunch on Saturday. We had to wait quite a while to order our food which was a bit of a problem for our “hangry” 2 year old but once the order was in the food was served quickly. Our waiter was apologetic and was very professional, ensuring that one lady with a nut allergy ordered suitable dishes. We have been before and will certainly be going again.

Nice atmosphere but the food was just ok, didn't taste very Spanish, a tad bland. The young woman who serves us first was abrupt and refuse to speak Spanish to my friend who was trying to practise. Fortunately the lady who came with our bill was very nice and friendly. We thought it was very expensive considering that the food wasn't great. If the quality of the food improves it would be a good place to visit again.

Nice pleasant lunch a little pricey for what we got....perhaps bread could be provided free with the tapas as I ordered 3 dishes and none had any substance, although they were tasty they were not filling.

Food was delicious, prices are very reasonable but service was a bit low for only 4 tables in the whole restaurant . I saw it rude that the waiter was cleaning the dishes on our table and also a little delay in service.

Excellent meal. Took my parents for their first experience of tapas. We chose the tasting tapas which was a really way of allowing them to experience authentic tapas .
