Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
“You can visit for a snack, or pig out on the full gourmet experience” at this Latino, shopping-mall mecca – nowadays the most commented-on eatery in ‘The Pool’. “The modern tapas just gets better and better” and “there’s a good, short wine list” in what’s a “laid-back, café-style place” (with a “brilliant deli” attached). “Now open in Manchester too.”
“Catalonia comes to The ’Pool”, at this inspired yearling, which defies its “sterile location, in the middle of a shopping mall” to produce “Spanish cooking with real heart” (“you won’t find tapas to beat this outside of Spain, and in fact it’s better than much of that you find IN Spain”). Top Tip – check out its “fascinating adjoining deli”.
“Liverpool’s answer to London’s Brindisa”; “you wouldn’t expect to find a really very good tapas restaurant in the middle of the spanking-new regenerated shopping district”, but this clubby fixture is a real hit with all who comment on it; “good deli too!”
“Excellent city-centre tapas”; this “friendly” fixture can sometimes be “a bit loud and clubby”, but it pleases all reporters with its “enjoyable” food, and its “extensive” wine list too.
Lunya Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Excellent range of surprisingly authentic Spanish tapas served by knowledgeable and obliging staff. Run by people who obviously really understand Spanish food. Good wine list at competitive prices. You can buy some of the food at an interesting deli on the ground floor."
"the downstairs bar area is more atmospheric than the slightly canteen like upstairs but this remains a very good Spanish tapas restaurant, light years ahead of the standard chains"
"Spanish tapas- well presented and very good. Lovely atmosphere, buzzing. Really good calamares and also the ciperones. The gambas were very good too."
