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.

Really safe experience and despite restrictions, the ambience was lovely. Service was attentive and personal, our waiter was on his game and really nice; food was outstanding - we had it in two waves (at our request) and it was the perfect small plate/sharing experience. Every dish was top-notch. Good to see the restaurant the right kind of busy as well. A fab night, well done all at Lunya.

A really enjoyable evening in relaxed surroundings. Great food and wine, lovely staff. The service was impeccable. We couldn't finish everything so it was all packed up for us to take home. We will be back! Thanks for a great night.

I love it here! We usually book on special occasions-it was for my birthday lunch this time. The decor is thoughtful, the atmosphere warmly Scouse mixed with Catalan, and the food is simply amazing-try the Gambas Pil Pil! Service is always spot on-they sense when you want something, and leave you to it when you don’t. Perfect 👌

Atmosphere rating is lower because it was very quiet but that is due to covid and current guidelines so hard to know how it would be in normal, busier times. The food was excellent, as was service.

I have given a low rating for atmosphere. There was none due to virus restrictions. We were the only diners in the restaurant. Not the fault of the restaurant. We missed the normal ' hub bub'. However, we are not in normal times

We really enjoyed our visit to Lunya, we have been before and will go again, despite the restriction due to the virus the staff were friendly and chatted to us about the food and drink. The food is excellent and there was plenty of it for the two of us, we ordered seven Tapas plates between us. We will certainly be going to Lunya again.

Food was fabulous again, great service, lovely chat with Ian. Atmosphere marked down only due to Covid issues which is so far outside of Lunya's control. In normal circumstances this would have been a 5 star again.

As always, lovely food and great service. Atmosphere lacking but only because of enforced quietness. I really really hope that you can keep going, we were regulars in Manchester before Covid and will come again to your Liverpool restaurant.

We had a fabulous meal. Everything was delicious, piping hot. So sad that you weren’t busier on a Friday night. We felt totally safe from start to finish. The Covid safety is the best we have experienced in any public place.
