No checks for COVID passports
Asked for a second bottle of wine and it never arrived
Sauce in one dish had not been cooked out enough to cook starch out of it so was grainy

Had mussels and chicken wings to start…. Mussels were excellent. Followed that with lasagne and scallops, again excellent. This is a gem in Temple Bar. I’ll be back.

We were seated promptly and offered drinks. Unfortunately the wine was lackluster. The food was okay…… However the ambience and service were very good. But, not good enough to go back.

Very good experience. Main course was delicious. Bruschetta too doughy and not thin and crunchy. But it was a positive experience! I will return again..

Outstanding service, big wine menu. The food menu contains a great choice of vegan dishes. The whole group was happy with their choices. We were placed downstairs in an overwhelmingly comfortable cellar. Perfect business dinner!

I have been here many times, usually for family events and have always found this restaurant to be excellent and this time was just as good. Great welcome on arrival and seated at a nice table upstairs. Food and wine were excellent and our party of 4 had a great time. We will be back for sure!!

We met for a girls day out and enjoyed the cosy atmosphere of the restaurant with their delicious Christmas lunch menu. Everything from the starters to the desert were beautifully presented and were lip smacking!
Special mention and Full pointers for the chicken risotto and opera cake !

We had a lovely hour at La Caverna on a quiet Wednesday evening. We initially had a male waiter who was incredibly friendly and helpful to get our main courses and drinks sorted. The house selected merlot was a gorgeous recommendation. We were treated to delicious vegan risotto and vegan primavera. The waitress behind the vegan menu development wasn’t incredibly nice to chat with towards the end of our dinner. We highly recommend any fellow vegans to visit and try this menu out. We, ourselves, intend to revisit and try out their vegan desserts soon. Overall, excellent food and service! 🎉

We had lovely food at la caverna however we all wanted to sit in the basement and this wasn’t given as an option to us! We wanted to sit in the basement as it’s got nice arched ceilings and looks very cozy!!
