Thank you Cava for the lovely diner on Friday. Staff was very nice and friendly. The food is unbelievable, every type of food for every taste served in a confortable and safe environnement. Aside of the food they have great selection of wine and the...prices are very affordable. I was reassured to see all the mesures taken to respect COVID19 hygiene protocols. All the staff wearing a mask and respecting distances. I would definitely recommend this place and will come back very soon!More

Great choice of tapas and other options. We selected several small dishes and could complain about none of them. The wine was exceptional but quite pricey at 40 Euros. Atmosphere was dark and cosy - ideal for couples. Will definitely be back and see there...is also a sister restaurant.More

Having long been a fan of the various Port House establishments around Dublin I was delighted to hear of their new venture on Camden street. Myself and a friend made an unusual decision to chance our arm at peak 8pm on a saturday evening without...a booking and after a short wait where we enjoyed some lovely wines at the bar we were shown to our table upstairs. Port house Cava is definitely trying to retain the intimate vibe that works so well for their other locations but this opening felt more buzzy and would work well for larger groups rather than romantic couples. We shared a lovely selection of tapas with standouts being the padron peppers and chorizo in red wine. Empandillas were underwhelming and the patas looked a bit pale and undercooked but overall we were happy with the food, service was very attentive and a good selection all around, will definitely be back.More

Myself and my wife visited Port House Cava last night. Luckily we walked in the door and were given a table straight away. The service and food were excellent, my wife is 37 weeks pregnant. The lady serving us who was full of energy was...so attentive to my wife’s needs being able to advise what foods were not spicy and best suited to her pregnancy. The food was delicious , portions a perfect size and full of flavour. The decor internally is really cool but still has a warm Spanish cultured feel. Prices were extremely reasonable. I would highly recommend visiting here. Thank you guys for a wonderful evening.More

My wife and I visited this restaurant between Xmas and New Year. We had not booked ahead but thankfully they were able to squeeze us in as the restaurant was quite busy. There was a nice choice of wines and tapas. Service from the bubbly...Mateo was excellent as were all the other waiters on the night. But what really made this restaurant stand out for us was the quality of the food. My goodness every dish we got was excellent, well prepared and presented. We had to congratulate the chefs. We didn't find it overly expensive and the decor and atmosphere of the restaurant was very good, it had a great buzz. There was three levels to it and infact I didn't realise how large it was until we visited the toilets. We have enjoyed tapas in Spain and Portugal but this restaurant was up there with the best of them. Bravo to all at the Port House.More

Having read the excellent reviews of Cava in several papers I was looking forward to lunch here. I believe Cava has just recently opened but you wouldn't think that when looking at the restaurant's furniture and overall decoration...it just looked dull and tired. Service was...patchy and the tapas fairly mediocre, some dishes could certainly have been warmer. Overall a disappointing experience, especially on Camden Street where there are many better options.More
