A great find on our visit to Dublin to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. The food was wonderful, I actually couldn’t finish my three courses. The atmosphere was great, then only tiny downside was the noise. There’s no soft furnishings so the noise bounces around. Anyone with a slight hearing impediment would not be able to follow the conversation of their companion, I struggled at times. I would definitely return here though:)

Best vegan restaurant in Dublin. It never fails to impress. However it would be nice if the tables weren’t so on top of each other

Really lovely food and staff as always. They fitted in an extra seat as it was a special occasion for us. They had sold out of my first menu choice but made up a substitute which was gluten free on request. I couldn't actually finish as there was so much on the plate, but believe me I tried!!! I am vegan, my partner is veggie and his Dad is omnivore. Everyone was happy.

Absolutely delicious and incredibly good value considering the attention to detail and presentation of each dish! The Seitan Steak with Pepper Sauce is outstanding.

Would like if they had more of a drink selection apart from just wine but the food more than made up for that. Immediately booked in for next month!

I really, really enjoyed my time at Sova Vegan Butcher. The scallops were especially tasty. I also had the steak, and although it wasn't exactly to my taste the accompaniments were spot on. The staff were really friendly and nothing was a bother at all - especially as we were really late for our booking and they reassured us that it was fine. Love that it's BYOB too!

Amazingly creative and delicious vegan food. Great amount of choices for a great value and very friendly staff. The only thing I'd change is the music, probably for something a bit more mellow. 100% recommend and will come back, can't wait to try the rest of the dishes :)

Excellent vegan cuisine/comfortfood. Had the burger and the rosemary ‘chicken’ roast. Superflavourable! Every bite made me happy like a little kid. Beginning to end. Also mega friendly staff. Thanks for being passionated about the plantbased lifestyle! Obviously one visit wasnt enough so we got back the next day for brunch and had the apple pancakes which were BOMB (that coconut whipped cream you guys!) Would come here again and again aaaand again.

We were visiting for the weekend from Dallas, TX and ended up eating here twice. We have really excellent vegan food in Dallas (Spiral Diner is a treasure), and expect a lot from vegan restaurants. This place blew us away. The pulled pork sandwich is the best sandwich I have had anywhere. Wish we could take a few of them home to the states with us. Will definitely be back during our next Dublin visit.

Sova never disappoints. We got there a bit early, but they still seated us right away. The staff is very friendly and attentive. Both of our meals were delicious.

Wonderful place and great options for vegans/vegetarians. This place has specialised on the illusion of making vegan food look like meat and its taste is magnificent!

The food was as always to die for. The choices for the lunch/ brunch menu are slightly different than the dinner ones but anything on that menu sounds mouth-watering good.

There seems to be less gluten-free options on the lunch selection though.

I'm waiting for those guys to produce a cook book.

All I can say is wow! Such delicious food. The loveliest most helpful staff who answered lots of questions for us. An impressive menu whether you are vegan, veggie or neither! The chia burger is a must and the meatballs (starter) were unbelievable. I was full until lunch the next day. Will definitely be back. BYOB is a bonus.

Finally got to have a 'traditional' Christmas dinner - roast, veg and potatoes. And turky. And It's not that i for a single second miss eating birds or animals, I certainly don't, but still it was fun to eat a dinner that looked like a Christmas dinner and great to know that no living creature had been harmed in any way during the making of the dinner. My friend who had never been to Sova before also loved it.

Can't work out how to upload photos from my phone. And too much going on. But I did take photos both of the turky dinner and of my friend's chia burger. Might post them later if I can work how how to do that!

I honestly could not have enjoyed my meal here any more. I had the schnitzel which was probably the best meal I've had all year, and my partner had the steak which tasted stunning. The wait staff were great and friendly all evening, and despite being quite busy always found time for us! I absolutely would go again in a heartbeat, and plan on eating there every time I'm in Dublin now. That schnitzel was honestly divine, mouthwatering just thinking about it!

Very clever and extremely tasty vegan food. The only quibble is that the place is a bit cramped and the chairs not very comfortable. Sometimes vegan restaurants seems to cultivate an austerity of comfort that I don't quite understand. However, the food is good enough to return, and we will, again and again.

Just amazing food and friendly staff. I visited for the first time in the summer and was so impressed that when I found out I was going to visit Dublin on business I made sure I stayed nearby Sova so that I could eat there both days, even though the hotel was a 50 minute walk away from the conference centre. I tried two different starters and two different mains but would find out really difficult to pick a favourite. They were all amazing. I will visit Dublin again just to go to Sova.

Once again, I enjoyed delicious food and my carnivore friend really enjoyed hers too, though I think she was not expecting to! [Sadly also once again I forgot to get the little card stamped when paying - I always carry it and invariably forget to use it.]
I could see right in to the kitchen and I kept telling my friend to look around, just to see the care and attention lavished on each and every dish of food as it was being prepared. I wish I hadn't had the cauliflower soup even though I loved it - I loved it so much I had to finish every last mouthful even though I knew I'd never be able for the (wonderful, so tasty) Chia Burger that followed. I think my friend's arancini and stuffed pork would have been a better choice, purely because the arancini was a smaller portion. But I can choose something else next time. Because there'll definitely be next times!
