10 places you can enjoy Tapas in Liverpool


Nothing says gorgeous sunny Spanish holidays quite like a table crammed with tapas to share and a massive jug of sangria to go with it.

We might not always get beach weather in Liverpool, but we do have plenty of places where the tapas is just as amazing as any you’ll find abroad.

Tapas proves size isn’t everything when it comes to flavour and the gorgeous small dishes mean you don’t have to commit to one main and risk a bad choice, you can have a bit of everything.

Whether you fancy classics like tortilla or patatas bravas, or getting a bit more adventurous with octopus or squid, here are 10 great places for tapas in Liverpool …

Tapas Revolution

One of the first tapas restaurants in the city, La Tasca on Queen Square, has just been taken over and is relaunching as Tapas Revolution. Expect a fantastic authentic menu, created by celebrity chef Omar Allibhoy, a Spanish terraza where you can eat and drink outdoors and a list of sangrias including a skinny one which goes easy on the sugar.

Salt House

The hardest part about going to Salt House on Hanover Street is trying to decide what to get because there’s so many creative dishes to choose from. Baby chorizo with honey is always a go-to for meat lovers, but they’ve also got loads of veggie tapas and a vegan menu – and a Cava Cellar so you won’t go short of fizz.

La Finca Eivissa

On Back Colquitt Street just off Duke Street, La Finca Eivissa recreates its own Ibizan vibe right in the centre of town. It’s got a finca-inspired décor to get you straight in the mood, plus meat, fish and veggie/vegan fusion tapas dishes. Try the salt and pepper crispy calamari and check out the espresso martini menu with eight different options!

El Gato Negro

Over on Exchange Flags, head for the black cat signage and you’ll find the stylish open-plan El Gato Negro which specialises in tapas and has an outdoor heated patio area for al fresco eating. Fish fans will love the salt cod fitters, and a twist on a traditional gambas classic – prawns with caramelized onions and peppers in garlic sauce.

It’s all about relaxed food sharing at Iberian wine bar and tasca BoBo on Castle Street. This is a proper hidden gem waiting to be discovered, with a menu celebrating the best of Iberian food (don’t miss the pastel de nata pastries), Spanish and Portuguese drinks options including white and red sangrias – and there’s even a bottomless sangria brunch on certain Sundays.

Lunya and Lunyalita

Two first class independent venues for tapas – one in Liverpool ONE and the other at the Albert Dock. Specialising in Catalan and Spanish dishes, they’ve both got a great authentic feel to them and a fabulous selection of traditional meat, fish and veggie tapas as well as a more modern street food section. Try out the special vermouth menu too.

La Parrilla

OK, so not Spanish tapas this time, but Mexican so perfect if you like things on the spicy side. You’ll definitely need to have a few cervezas handy if you try the stuffed chillis because they’re super-hot, filled with cream cheese, coated in breadcrumb and served with salsa, or maybe play it safe with bacon and cream cheese stuffed Portobello mushrooms.

Revolucion de Cuba

At the Albert Dock, Rev de Cuba’s got a really decent tapas menu to go alongside its large plate mains, with some unique dishes like mojito king prawns with rum mayo, octopus wrapped in chorizo and Cuban spiced black beans. You can get mini versions of its quesadillas and tacos and there are plenty of veggie and GF options too.

If you fancy tapas outside of the city centre, then get yourself to Woolton Village because you’ll find Nowhere tapas bar and restaurant there, just opposite the junction with Allerton Road. They’ve got classics like chicken and chorizo skewers, spicy lamb meatballs, deep fried whitebait and traditional king prawns pil pil. Just don’t order too many because you’ll need room for cheesecake.

More info here.

El Nido

Still on the Costa del Woolton (or maybe Childwall), El Nido is another absolute gem of a place for tapas on Woolton Road with dishes which are big on Basque Country influence. There are classics like ham and Manchego croquettes, salt cod or mushrooms in garlic and cream, it’s got a kids’ menu and a fabulous burnt Basque cheesecake for dessert.
