“This is Spain !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Had a lovely lunch here again couple of weeks ago. Consistently good service great food great wine. Fresh, Fresh, Fresh is the key here I think.

Look forward to my next visit to Manchester and Evuna!

“Absolutely gorgeous food and fantastic serving hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

It was Saturday 3rd November 8.30pm. Evuna was packed solid, the atmosphere was wonderful and the lighting inside warm and inviting for what was a real cold wind outside. We were celebrating my friend Jenny's 47th birthday, four ladies enjoying a meal out. Evuna was buzzing and there was the delight of all ages which made it more welcoming. From the moment we stepped through the door, we were greeted immediately and shown to our table. The menu's were presented straight away and we were given a little time to order drinks. They offer a fixed price menu including lots of hot and cold Tapas for £20, but as we were on a birthday night and being cold outside we decided to opt for the main menu and pick all hot Tapas. The waitress advised us on the best wine, and the special of the month being a wonderful 2009 Reserva Rioja which she kindly wrote down for me to buy on line. Paella is cooked fresh so be warned there is a 40 minute wait for this, so best opt for lots of gorgeous Tapas to keep you going! We had Beef strips with roasted veg, Bread with oil and balsamic vinegar, Calamari with hot pepper sauce and garlic mayo, King Prawns in garlic and lemon, Stuffed peppers with mushrooms for starters and shared them! Piping hot served on hot gridle plates to keep food hot. Mains we had Paella chicken and Seafood! Be warned the portions are a wonderful size so we shared two Paella between 4 as we did have the 5 starters Tapas. However if you dont have a taste of the menu and go for main only, then a Paella is a nice enough size! But who could ever go to a Tapas and have only a main, just not right you have to taste everything right down to the desserts. We had the lot! and Crema Catalana for dessert very similar to Creme Brulee....This place deserves its recognition! Even the waitors and waitress's were Spanish! the whole theme was wonderful and we will certainly be back! Excellent food, excellent service, you should be proud Evuna you have just got it so right!

“Always a pleasure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

I have eaten at Evuna on several occasions over the last 3 years after often walking past and thinking it was a wine bar. Everytime I have been back since I have always found the staff attentive, the food very good and authentic and above all else a great atmosphere inside the restaurant. I would highly recommend this restaurant for all occasions- extensive wine list too!

“Good but not amazing.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012 via mobile

My wife and i went to Evuna after work for dinner as based on the number of good reviews on here and out love of tapas we were keen to give it a try. The actual restaurant is nice and the staff generally amiable. However I was a little disappointed with the food, I had just expected something a little better.

If honest I would say the food was only slightly better than somewhere like la tasca. In saying that the quality of the cold tapas, such as the serrano's was very good, the let down was more on some of the meat dishes which lacked much flavour or depth to the dishes.

Overall it was a nice enough experience without getting too excited by it.

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

We had been meaning to visit Evuna for some time, always commenting how welcoming and interesting it looks and when we went on Friday we weren't disappointed! Wonderful atmosphere, excellent friendly service and incredible food. The special of Oxtail was fantastic. Really lovely intimate feeling, you'd never know you were right on Deansgate.
