My first culinary love in Dublin. There is no way you can not fall in love with this very small cosy French restaurant. The staff are always pleasant and the food... ahh it is mouth-watering and very good value for money! The entrance of the place is just off Grafton Street, and it’s pretty hard to miss. La Cave has an excellent Early Bird menu for just 16,95 euro (includes starter and main course) which is available every day from 5 pm to 7 pm. La Cave is also a wine bar, and they have over 350 different wines, so I am sure you’ll find something to your taste.

Wine tasting evening was very enjoyable and for the price of €15 it was worth it. I learnt a lot and the guy was very knowledgeable. Upstairs is a little small and squasy yet intimate and quaint.

I booked a table for two here for the 8th of February. As it was a special occasion for myself and my partner we were really looking forward to going out to dinner to celebrate. I had received a confirmation email from Menupages verifying my booking for the 8th at 6.30. Upon arrival we were told that we were not on the reservation list for the Saturday but we were booked for the Friday instead. I checked my confirmation email again, doubting myself, only to find I was right. This mistake made by means of bad organization and management skills ruined our night and could have been easily avoided. We will not try to visit again.

`Very small, cosy little restaurant! If you don't mind tables very close together you will be grand! Both my partner & I had the earlybird which was good value! For starters we had the goats cheese & pate, both were good! My other half had the lamb cutlets which were very flavoursome & cooked to perfection with a delicious sauce! I had the salmon which was tasty! The atmosphere was very buzzy and enjoyable!! I know this place may seem a little dated & old fashioned when compared to all the new types of restaurants we have opening every week in this city but it really is a nice, very affordable little place with good tasty food!

group of 5 went on Friday evening. Very small and intimate. Tables are very close together but you couldn't hear the conversations at the other tables. This restaurant is a little gem, staff are very friendly, food was excellent and very good value for money. Starters were large and main courses small but just enough. Desserts were delicious. My only issue was that I had rack of lamb and it could have been more tender. Everyone else were happy with their choices, steak, chicken, duck and pasta. will definitely be going back.

Had a fabulous meal here last night. Group of 6 and we were seated in the corner, lovely banquette. It's a tiny place that packs a mighty punch. Wines of the month were great. Food was flawless and we scraped our plates, especially the mains and desserts. Wonderful service, great value for food and wine. A real gem. We all agreed we would return and can't believe we never knew it was there. Service was excellent, very friendly and also catered for special dietary requirements no bother. A big fat 5 all round!!

Really like La Cave. Went there last week, and had wine with food. Not sure why people go here for a standard meal, probably some kind of genetic thing among Irish people that a meal is a meal a drink is a drink. La Cave is like many places I have been to in Europe. Wine is good with solid glasses and very informed manageress. The food is also good - its food for people who like the wine. We had a brilliant evening, and people always talk to each other, even if you sometimes can't understand what they are saying.

I ate here with a group of friends and was suprised to see it relatively busy for a Wednesday night. Bijou would be the polite term to use when describing La Cave! However its cramped tables almost add to the charm of the place. Most of us opted for the 2 course deal for 16.95. Altough there wasn't a huge amount of choice on this menu, I suppose this is to be expected when ordering from a set menu. My goats cheese starter was really tasty, if a little on the small side. Small portions continued with our main courses. I can't fault the steak in red wine jus but the side of mash and veg were minuscule. We agreed that overall the food and wine were enjoyable and there is a pleasant, romantic atmosphere. However we did have some minor complaints regarding service. One dish needed to be sent back as it was barely lukewarm. When asked to reheat the main, the waiter wasn't at all apologetic. The restaurant also became quite cold as the night progresses. There was a definite draught or icy air con of some description! I would recommend a visit to try their HUGE selection of wines but unfortuantely I won't be in a hurry back to eat.
