Award-winning chef Miguel Barrera has brought over 20 years of high-level restaurant experience in Spain to Liverpool’s Wavertree with Gracias on Church Road. The refined cuisine suits a fine-dining tag, but the atmosphere here is warm and casual, with service just as excellent as the food. That’s pretty darn excellent – with foie gras, pistachio nut cream and caramelised apple, sweet peppers stuffed with morcilla de Burgos and slow-cooked lamb with mustard sauce and crunchy asparagus just a few highlights from an amazing tapas menu to go along with exceptional main meals, decadent Spanish desserts and a great wine list. Gracias is in the thick of the action around Penny Lane and it fills up quickly, so it’s wise to reserve a table well ahead of time to ensure you get to enjoy one of Liverpool’s finest Spanish dining experiences.

Really love the menu here, it's not vast but everything tastes good. They all compliment each other very well too, even when you might not think they should. Have yet to have a bad dish in this place.
Everything was good about this restaurant. The food was excellent, the staff very friendly and attentive, the prices reasonable. highly recommended. we will definitely be going there again.
Excellent authentic food and atmosphere, will be back again soon.
I would definitely recommend Gracais and will go back. The food tasted amazing and the atmosphere was lovely. Very authentic and the service was great.
Had a lovely meal at Gracias last night. Very friendly staff, good recommendations on food pairing, and the food itself was delicious! We went for the 3 for £11.95 option, and there was more than enough to share around (3 people each ordered the 3, so 9 dishes in total). The croquettes were divine! Would highly recommend and will be back! Gracias!
Our first visit to this restaurant was a most pleasurable occasion. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and attentive without being 'pushy'. I have to say that this was probably the best tapas food we have experienced. Allow for about 2 dishes per person if you wish to enjoy the tasty paella to share at the end. The tapas contained a varied mixture of vegetarian, fish, and meat dishes. The patatas bravas were the nicest we have tasted, and as for the lamb with mustard and honey - absolutely delicious. Other truly memorable dishes included the goats cheese, the peppers, and the prawns. We had the seafood paella - exceedingly good; next time we will try the Valencienne paella (chicken and rabbit). Overall a really very nice culinary experience, and one which we hope to experience again soon. Give it a go - you will not be disappointed.
Gorgeous as always! Gracias will always be my favourite restaurant :) the crunchy chicken with the homemade chutney is SO GOOD. I get it every time I visit.. And the actual sharable sized portions are one of the many reasons this restaurant is the best tapas in Liverpool :) Look forward to my next visit!
Lovely food - we ordered almost everything from the tapas menu! There's been an explosion of Spanish/Tapas style restaurants in Liverpool in the last few years, but Gracias and one other Spanish restaurant remain my favourites (have tried all the others - not worth a second visit!).
Visited Gracias with my wife and two daughters. We all thoroughly enjoyed the authentic Spanish tapas - absolutely delicious! We were impressed by the warm welcome and friendly, helpful service from all the staff. We will definitely book again! Recommend you give it a try!
This was my second time visiting Gracias, and it's fast becoming my favourite restaurant! The food is superb and the staff were lovely. They went out of their way to make my friends birthday special :) Cannot wait to visit again !
Gracias is my favourite restaurant! :) All the food is cooked fresh and tastes amazing & the way it is presented is beautiful. I'd eat out here every night if I could afford to! Will be returning very soon
A lovely, authentic family-run Spanish restaurant which serves delicious food; the goat's cheese is divine and patas bravas are crispy on the outside and soft in the middle, just like they should be! Friendly staff. Music a little loud to talk comfortably but turned down the instant we asked. This place really deserves to be busier. For now we'll continue to enjoy this hidden gem before it becomes too full to get a table!
As we walked in for my birthday celebration, the owner was making two large glasses of Sangria - I mentioned our reservation and he said, "these are for you, Happy Birthday". The fabulous service kept coming, with friendly staff and the food was divine. I definitely recommend the goat's cheese, and the homemade alioli was out of this world. We're grateful to live locally and will be back!
The food was fantastic with some really nice authentic dishes. The staff and owner in particular are always so friendly and efficient. This place should be busier than it is as the food is a better standard than the Tapas next door. I would highly recommend this place if you are thinking of deciding between the two!!
First time last night, wasn't disappointed food excellent. Felt sorry for them as they were under staffed which they informed us as we arrived, but you would have thought they were food and drinks were coming and as said food lovely. We will return and the next time we will be going with family. Thank you
We enjoyed really lovely food and excellent service. We have been before and will definitely be coming back and have no hesitation in recommending Gracias.
Great service, wonderful food and a free Mother's Day sangria was given to my mum! Lovely thought! Food came out as it was ready which at first I wasn't sure about but it actually worked well - it spaces out your dining experience! We will definitely be coming back.
Amazing food. Generous portions. The mid week meal deal is very good value for money.Very attentive staff. Both myself and my daughter love this place. One of my favourites. We will be returning in the very near future. Thank you for a lovely experience.
Our first visit after many recommendations, and it will certainly not be our last. Service was fantastic, explanations of the dishes and portion sizes given to aid our decisions and lovely decor and atmosphere. Simply a must visit restaurant if you enjoy tapas.
Great food and service.Good size portions ,bigger than we expected actually ,we ended up over ordering and couldn't finish it all which was a shame as the food was so tasty,Will know better next time which will be soon .would definitely recommend
