The Credit Munch: La Vina

End of the world as we know it? Then grab a sweet deal when the finances bite, with our occasional guide to what's going and what's good

Published on January 14th 2010.

The Credit Munch: La Vina

The economy:Exclusively for Liverpool Confidential readers we have secured two deals: Weekday lunchtimes you get three sampler tapas for under a tenner and that includes a drink (wine, beer, soft drink). But there's more. A bonus package where you get a whopping 25 per cent off the whole food bill every Flamenco Thursday*.

In real terms: There may be a global financial crisis, but you've still got to eat. Right? And if the boss wouldn't let you have the time off to go on your hols this year, or you plain couldn't afford, it's payback time. Choose from 12 delicious tapas dishes and make it as short or as long a lunch as you can get away with.

On our visit, an evening, we indulged in a series of seriously authentic tasting Spanish dishes including patatas bravas - gorgeous deep fried potatoes in a fresh tomato sauce with a proper garlic mayonnaise; we fought over succulent pork ribs with mixed peppers, tomatoes and white wine, marvelled at a big, fresh and healthy figgy salad, devoured light and lovely calamari along with grilled whole sardines that could have come straight out of the Med. The olives had a lot going for them too, as did service from Lanzarote's finest waitress, Carmen.

At a quarter of the bill off, this would have meant two of us eating for under £20 while we watched the flamenco and forgot ourselves. A bargain and it was unanimously voted a hit.

There's also a whole range of good looking, non-tapas main meat and fish courses, priced at around £10, not forgetting a dedicated paella menu. You do the maths.

The interest rate: Likely to be high, so book early.

Child credits: Not a specific kids menu that we could see, but at these prices and with this choice it is a fine way of not only trying them out on new dishes, but giving them that Spanish cultural experience that they are not now be getting in real life for the forseeable.

The futures market: These offers won't last forever, say analysts, so buy, buy, buy.

Credit score: Cast-a net gain.
