Spanish Restaurants in Merseyside
1. Salt House Spanish restaurant in Liverpool 1 Hanover Street - L1
A stylish tapas joint just round the corner from John Lewis (should you be hungry after shopping for a washing machine) – “very busy, lively and fun, with interesting dishes that are reasonably priced”. Top Tip – “a very good value set lunch”.
2. Lunya Spanish restaurant in Liverpool 55 Hanover Street - L1
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.
3. Pen Factory Mediterranean restaurant in Liverpool 13 Hope St - L1
“As popular as ever” – launched in 2014, this small plates operation (the name spells out the site’s former purpose) recreates “Liverpool legend” Paddy Byrne’s beloved old Everyman Bistro next door. “Paddy keeps prices fair” and the kitchen has been turning out some “more adventurous” plates of late, much to reporters’ content.
4. Lunyalita Spanish restaurant in Liverpool Unit 5, Britannia Pavilion, Royal Albert Dock - L3
Baby sister of Lunya, the Catalan tapas restaurant in the city centre.
6. Pilgrim Spanish restaurant in Liverpool 46 Duke Street - L1
BBC2’s ‘My Million Pound Menu’ winners Dave Bone (chef) Jamie Duffield (front of house), and Anthony Power opened this new venture in Duke Street Market (a revamped docklands warehouse) in spring 2019. The food offering is based on dishes found along the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage routes in Spain, France and Portugal, and – though we received no survey feedback – it’s receiving a good rep generally (including from Michelin who awarded it a 2020 Bib Gourmand).
7. El Gato Negro Spanish restaurant in Liverpool Unit 2, Walker House, Exchange Flags - L2
Manchester’s tapas smash hit branched out in August 2019, with this large 250-seat opening, in the Exchange Flags development, overlooking Liverpool’s fine town hall (which formerly traded as Steven Gerrard’s ‘The Vincent’). A big and well-stocked bar is also key to the offering.
