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 !
