Peter & Elaine Kinsella’s “fun” and “fabulous” Catalan bar and deli offers a “mix of authentic tapas done exceptionally well”. Since opening in 2010 they have expanded to bigger premises in Liverpool ONE and opened Lunyalita in the Albert Dock, but a branch in Manchester’s Deansgate was a victim of the 2020 lockdown.

Going from strength to strength after its 2017 move to bigger premises – in shopping mecca Liverpool ONE – Peter & Elaine Kinsella’s “authentic” Catalan tapas spot serves up “mouthwatering dishes full of flavours” (the “churros are a dream”). “An added joy is stopping to make purchases at the deli counter as you leave”. Also in the Albert Dock (Lunyalita) and with a branch in Manchester.

“Tapas with style… and it never disappoints” – that’s the appeal of Peter and Elaine Kinsella’s re-located operation: “a brilliant and buzzing bar/restaurant” (plus in-house deli) that “continues the high quality of the original” having moved a short distance from the first site, in Liverpool One. In summer 2018, the couple opened a spin-off, Lunyalita – one of a number of new openings in Albert Dock, with the arched ceilings and brickwork typical of the location.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
