Celebrate Valentine’s Day the Spanish way this year at Lunya’s romantic, candlelit restaurant in the Barton Arcade. The a la carte menu (read our review) is available, but the special Valentine’s banquet looks irresistible. This Iberian feast includes a glass of Sangria, the finest tapas in town and desserts to share for £29.95 per person. Start with olives, kikones and mixed platter of Ibérico ham and cheeses, followed by our favourite Catalan tomato bread, a delicate tortilla, spicy (and not so spicy) Padrón peppers, tender Calamari in beer batter, proper Spanish meatballs (Albóndigas), the house chicken, served on piquant romesco sauce and, last but not least, patatas bravas. The sharing dessert platter includes freshly made churros with chocolate dipping sauce, Tarta de Santiago, chocolates and Turron.
If you don’t want to compete with the throng of people that descend on the city once a year for their Valentine’s night meal out, you might prefer taking a piece of the city home with you. Lunya are also offering a selection of hampers with a none more fitting ‘Bubbles and Chocolate Hamper’ (£40) for the old fashioned charmer, a ‘Gin Hamper’ (£22) for those who prefer a juniper infused night in and the ‘Cheese and Wine Hamper’ (£58) for the foodie couple. You can even have them delivered to your door.
