Description: Savina Mexican Restaurant and Cantina is a stylish eatery on Queen Square in Liverpool with a bustling, vibrant atmosphere and delicious Mexican food. With wooden floors, floor-to-ceiling windows and dark wooden furniture, the dining room has a warm, cosy ambience and is frequented by a fashionable local crowd. We recommend the Pescados de Chipotle – prawns and scallops cooked in white wine, chilli, lemon, coriander and chillies served with warm tortillas; the Nachos Supreme topped with spicy chicken, cheese and pico de gallo, topped with soured cream and guacamole; and the Pescados Especial Fajitas – king prawns, mussels and scallops with onions, mushrooms and peppers. Savina boasts a cosmopolitan cocktail bar with red leather sofas for pre/post dinner drinks.

Fab , unfussy Mexican street food. Great taste combinations and top guacamole to boot. We majored on the Burritos. Service fast and friendly

I recently discovered this place after friends banging on about it & I’m absolutely made up they did.

I’ve been twice and each time was amazing.

The first time I ordered a Chicken Tinga Burrito & Halloumi fries and OMG both were beautiful. The second time I got Chicken Quesadillas with Sour Cream and my tastebuds has an absolute rave!!

The customer service was brilliant on both visits. The second visit was a lot busier and I was treated just the same as when it was quiet. Ryan is a credit to the team.

Fantastic place, reasonable prices, well worth the visit, 5 stars all round!!

We visited Savina on Easter Sunday, we'd been searching for a Mexican restaurant, something different then the big chains, and came across this superb place, the food was amazing the service was superb we both had a starter and main and 6 pints between the 2 of us and the price was less then £60 so was amazing value as well, safe to say we will definitely be eating here again

We love Mexican food and decided to try here on a recent visit to Liverpool over the Easter weekend. We had booked in advance but the restaurant was quiet on arrival. We ordered starters and a main course and these were great. They were authentic Mexican with side sauces. This made a very tasty meal and allowed us to try foods we wouldn't usually.
Service was great and a very reasonable price. We will definatley return with the kids. (So they can try on the Mexican hats too!)

We visited Savina last night. Firstly, the positives. Food is good. We ordered the nachos and chicken tinga burritos and everything was cooked well. Also, the staff actually working were great, really friendly and, despite the fact they were run ragged, always available if you needed something.

Now on to the less positive. Firstly, when we entered, despite what I believe to be “management” noticing us, we were completely ignored until one of the wait staff were free. We’d booked online a couple of hours before but when we arrived, they had no record of our booking. However this was quickly sorted and we were sat about 5 minutes later.
After about 10 minutes, and concerned as we had a train to catch, we managed to get a waitress’ attention and we decided to order drinks and all food at the same time. Don’t bother with the cocktails as they’re more soda water than alcohol!
Finally, the place just seemed in complete disarray. Big parties were being made to wait for booked tables and some people left before being approached as it was taking so long. Might be an idea to not accept online bookings on the day of the booking as they seemed overstretched. Also, the staff who stayed by the serving hatch could possibly help more....
Wouldn’t revisit.

Thank you Zoobie for taking the time to share your visit to Savina on our TripAdvisor.

First and foremost, we are an independent restaurant and we take all feedback good, bad or constructive on board in order for us to achieve the best possible standards for our customers when visiting our restaurant, so once again, thank you!

It is a real shame, that after you complimenting our staff and our food you went on to say you wouldn't revisit, this is disappointing.

Albeit, things could have been a bit hectic on Saturday, because I am sure you would appreciate that in a restaurant sometimes things can go wrong and sometimes we do get caught out when it becomes extremely busy with such large crowds of footfall, over the many hundreds of restaurants to choose from, these things do occur in each and everyone. However, this should not be put down to our usual standard, as you can see we have lots and lots of lovely feedback, so its a shame you wouldn't give us another try again in the future.

We really appreciate the feedback and rest assure we do listen and learn!!

Thank you once again
