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!

Had a lovely early-bird with three friends. Staff are very friendly and helpful. It's a bit of a squeeze moving around. Moules mariniere were just right, however the portion of sea bass, the house special, was beautiful but resembled a started portion. House wine (red) a good choice.

A charming little restaurant. Soup and crab tartlets to start were tasty and devoured. Confit of duck and steak with bearnaise sauce, all cooked to perfection. An outstanding wine list and pleasant staff made this a perfect venue for dinner with friends.

I return to this wine bar again and again and I have yet to be disappointed. Its great location, just off Grafton st, and its fantastic value for great quality food. The early bird is great, the mussels are a personal favourite. If you are a wine lover this is for you. Huge choice of wines by the glass. This is great for an early evening early bird or a late night bite with wine. I think the wine bar is open until 2am at weekends. They also provide wine tasting evenings during the week and the room upstairs is very suitable for private parties. I'm looking forward to my next visit.

Excellent experience as always, we were a party of 6 and were looked after very well. It was my wife's birthday and our attentive waiter made the evening so enjoyable. Great food, atmosphere and fantastic value for the wonderful food we received. Well done.
