La Caverna Restaurant and Wine Bar is a cosy place based in the heart of Temple Bar, one of the most vibrant and popular area in Dublin. We have a lovely restaurant with scrumptious dishes, over 150 bottles wine served by glass at prices that are most reasonable and also other beers and spirits. Its authenticity is accentuated by the fresh, original dishes from Ireland including selection of fish, steaks, lamb, duck, venison, chicken (all delivered by the local providers) and some Italian specialities.. It is built on the rich Irish spirit that makes a gathering place feel like home.

The Restaurant has 3 separate, private dining rooms - one of them being the cellar, a 300 years old room transformed into a beautiful dining room and a wine bar. The ground floor is a spacious room with the tables and fish tanks. The top floor has a truly intimate atmosphere by loads of candles placed on unique brick wall.

With the capacity of 100 seats, we’ve become a neighbourhood favourite for corporate events, wedding dinners, birthday and office parties, wine tastings and much more. We can offer special menu tailored to your demands. Our private party event staffs are proud to be working with dozens of businesses in the Dublin area all year round in an easy and flexible fashion to maximize every event.

Went here for work Christmas do. Was overpriced, horrible food and and terrible service. They already had their money and didn't care what they served. Basement is nice space but there was no effort made to create festive atmosphere. Staff all looked miserable and were not particularly helpful

This restaurant masquerades as an Italian restaurant serving poor quality food at high prices. They have an extensive wine list and I ordered a specific bottle of Sicilian wine. They brought a totally different bottle that was “made in Italy” and insisted that it had replaced the bottle that was on the menu sending three different people to the table to point this out to me. The wine they brought was not on the menu but they reassured me that it was the same price (€30!) and that it was the one they had in the cooler. As a solution they strongly recommended that I try the house wine instead. The food was average at best and the over the top effort of conviviality by the staff was most uncomfortable. We were with friends who had made the booking so felt obliged to stay. In my opinion this restaurant is run by amateurs out to make a profit. Avoid.

very enjoyable evening , dined on the early bird and plenty of choice for both of us. We weren't rushed off the table when our meal was finished either which was nice not to have to find somewhere else to finish our evening.

Had dinner here a few years ago and it was much better. Chicken wings for starter were undercooked so very fatty and hard to eat, the garlic chicken main was incredibly dry with no sauce. Prawn starter, wine and creme brûlée were good and the waitress was very helpful and friendly.
