    We had a wonderful experience at La Caverna on a very busy night! The food was incredible and the service was terrific. My teenagers loved it and their father and I were delighted. It was more expensive than I expected but as a special night out it was worth it.

    We had a lovely evening at La Caverna. The food was incredible, from starter to dessert! The ambiance was lovely and the service was really good! All of the meals came out together apart from my dad’s dessert being forgotten and so his coffee went cold. The rest of the experience was brilliant!

    Arrived and was given the table in basement as requested There was a large group already there and as it’s an enclosed space noise levels were very loud Is it romantic or what we expected? no. There was no point saying it to the staff as not a lot they could do. as I brought my wife for her birthday after reading reviews but am afraid it went down like a lead balloon. The area outside the restaurant is to say the least unsafe as we were approached by multiple people requesting money who were very insistent and we will never return. The place was very busy but we just didn’t see why How was food? Definitely went in microwave and like others said the table water is definitely left on the table a while as was warm
