Eating Out at Savina Mexican Restaurant and Bar in Queen Square, Liverpool City Centre
Queen Square in Liverpool is ideally located to access some superb places to eat out. Ideally located for access to the city centre shopping and nightlife districts, you can as easily pop in for lunch on a trip to the shops as you can go for an evening meal before drinks in this area. Since 2006 Savina Mexican Restaurant has been serving a fresh, trendy approach to traditional Mexican cuisine, and has built quite a reputation since they moved to Queen Square from the Duke St location in 2017.
Famous as for it’s great tasting meals, and almost as much for the warming, friendly atmosphere created within there is something for everyone here, whether you are a romantic couple, group of friends or a family celebrating a special occasion.
The inside of the old restaurant had a rustic feeling with low lighting and warm colours across the room, with a bright candle burning away at your table awaiting your arrival. Since the upgrade there’s a much more modern buzz going on in the restaurant, with crazy colours and industrial lighting.
The staff reflect the Savina Mexican Restaurant ethos really well; friendly and accommodating is in their nature and they will make sure you have an enjoyable experience during your meal.
So what is a dish like here? The restaurant boasts a few different menus dependant on when you decide to come. Here’s a recent list:
– Lunch Menu Served 12pm until 2.30pm Monday to Friday
– A Temprano or Early Bird Menu Served Sunday to Friday before 7pm and before 5pm Saturday
– An Evening A La Carte Menu Served Every Day
There are also kids and drinks menus including cocktails, the latter of which I’ll get on to soon.
So the food? simply fantastic. A modern take on traditional Mexican, with a bit of added style brought straight to Liverpool. The Flautas, flour tortillas filled with ingredients of which there are several different options are extremely tasty as a starter. There is plenty of choice for you across all of the options to suit your palette.
You can see from the photo below the finishing that is put into the dishes to make them not only taste awesome, but look good too.
What can you wash these delightful starters down with? There are some very reasonably priced cocktails available; the Lime Mojitos are particularly refreshing and help you balance your palette with the exciting spice the food brings.
Also, for the grape lover is a solid wine list with a variety of Reds, Whites and Rosé wines to order and drink with your courses.
What about the main courses? Again brilliant choice, the Chicken Enchiladas were amazing. A well balanced sauce on top and beautifully cooked chicken giving a lovely spice to your mouth as you ate. The portion sizes are generous too, making Savina Mexican Restaurant ideal for refuelling after a long day of shopping in Liverpool.
So Mexico is not exactly famous for desserts, But, there are some very tasty options to choose from if you still have an appetite after your main course. Churros come well recommended; Pipe shaped crispy donuts that you can dip into steaming hot melted chocolate fudge sauce.
Fried dough pastries, Churros are traditionally breakfasting food eaten with coffee, jam, hot chocolate as a start to the day. They make exceptional endings to a meal though, especially when paired with a Liquor Coffee.
