Well hello Paris! And all that without the hassle of flying. An unassuming sign above the tiny entrance, narrow stairs leading to the first floor which reveals itself bathed in candlelight, dark red velvets, dark wood and just basically everything warm and dark. At the small bar, a few ladies enjoy their first glass of red before continuing on downstairs for their wine tasting evening. No one wears feathers or fascinators but neither would be out of place here. It is seriously cosy, not crowded, not too loud. We get handed 3 kinds of menus, plus wine list. The do an early bird for 17.50Euro for 2 courses, a 2 course set menu for 19Euro (which isn't advertised on their website) and a la carte dining. They also do a fine dining a la francais for 55Euro for 5 courses. We start with mussels and goats cheese salad, both very nice. Our mains were venison veneur with mash. Sooo nice. The wines we had (Chilean Merlot and South African Pinotage) we both pleasant and our waiter was very attentive without being too 'in-your-face'. Overall, a surprisingly great little restaurant right in the heart of Dublin!

I met a friend for an early bird at this Wine bar recently. Service and atmosphere was excellent, House wine priced very well and tasted fine. Tables are very close together and portion size is quite small for early bird, but overall a pleasant experience.

Great value and food was superb. This restaurant is like an Aladdin's cave. Our table(for 2) was a little too close to next table and could hear their conversation. Otherwise everything was superb and will definitely be back again and again.

I absolutely love this restaurant! I know it's as old as Dublin itself but that is what gives it the wonderful atmosphere. Yes, the tables are very close together and there's no natural light but it enhances the feeling of cosiness. The food is always well cooked and presented. In-keeping with the atmosphere, the menu is a little old-fashioned but very tasty. It's not a modern restaurant with the latest in menu trends or ingredients, but it is one of the most atmospheric restaurants in Dublin and you are guaranteed a tasty meal for a reasonable price.

From the outside it looks a seedy 80s nightclub, which is cool. Inside it's dingy, and red, like something from a David Lynch film, which is also cool. I felt like I was really in France and was kind of loving the dated decor. The tables are small and close together which kind of adds to the atmosphere which I didn't mind at all. The wine: So many glasses to pick from! I was in wine heaven! The food: The early bird/tourist menu seems to be good value yet none of the main courses appealed to us so we went A la carte and ordered a bunch of starters, the prawns, crab tart, snails, and foie gras to be specific. The prawns were flavorsome, yet the sweet chili sauce was a bit generic and not very French, crab tart was good, but probably my least favorite, snails were garlicky and delicious, and foie gras was pretty standard. We finished with a cheese/charcuterie plate which was good value as there were a lot of things on the plate, highlight being the pate and the cheese. The meats were dry and overly chewy so I would just do straight up cheese next time. This restaurant is really about the wine. I mean the food was good, like I enjoyed eating it, but nothing really blew me away. I will be back though to work my way through that wine list.

I had dinner in La Cave with a friend on Saturday night. Very small restaurant, but a nice, cosy atmosphere and the service and food were excellent. My only slight quibble was that the early bird runs from 5-7 and I booked the table for 7, thinking we could avail of the early bird but were told we could not. The a la carte menu is reasonable however so this was not a big problem. I had the mussels and the venison - would recommend!
