Evuna launched in 2002 as a fine wine house, importing Spanish wines from boutique vineyards.

In November 2003, Evuna Deansgate opened, followed by branches in the hip Northern Quarter and now in Knutsford – each serving world-class wine with an eclectic mix of Spanish dishes cooked by a team of chefs recruited from Madrid.

We visited Evuna Knutsford. The restaurant is elegant and sophisticated with a rustic edge, coloured in the traditional hues of Spain – think browns, reds and oranges.

We ordered a range of tasty tapas, including Octopus on Roasted Potato, Pan-fried Hake with Chanterelle Mushrooms in a rich red wine sauce, Sirloin Steak with Tenderstem Broccoli, a classic Chicken and Chorizo Paella and, our personal favourite, Goat’s Cheese and Spinach Croquetas.

All dishes were available to be paired with a matching wine, if requested, but we stuck to a crisp white throughout.

To finish, we decided on Poached Pear with Vanilla Ice Cream and Almond Flakes – refreshing and light.
