Salt House Tapas

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. Stornoway black pudding, pan fried chicken livers, caramelised onions, and PX cream sauce is always a go-to dish for meat lovers, but they’ve also got loads of veggie tapas, 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 Kinder Bueno Espresso Martini while you’re there.

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. Take advantage of their 3 for £18 offer Tuesday–Friday all day, and Saturday 12–4pm, OR, why not get in there for Tipsy Tapas, their iconic Bottomless Brunch? It’s available Friday 12–9pm & Saturday 12–4pm.

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. Make sure you try their “Jamon serrano y patatas fritas” – which is THE serrano ham and crisp tumble to share.

Sticking with Castle Street, but making a move to Italian-style tapas. Bacaro is part of the Salt house Tapas family, and is a very popular restaurant among the locals, booking is definitely advised here, especially on a weekend.

From stunning pizzettes to the most incredible Slow cooked harissa lamb tagliatelle… there’s nothing better than getting a load of dishes between you and having a bit of everything.

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.

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.

So Salsa
