I've been dining at last caverna for the past 10 years and I love it more each time that I visit. Food is amazing and staff are incredibly friendly. I held a surprise birthday party for my husband last year and the staff went above and beyond. My sister said "I had the nicest turkey and ham ever!" Such a great restaurant. The wine cellar is definitely where you want to sit. Can't wait to return.

With the ten thousand step mark on Madam's pedometer passed not long after lunch the mood had darkened by 6pm and there was an immediate requirement for sustenance before our march along the banks of the Liffy to take in Jack Whitehall at the 3arena.

Into the wine, our starters soon appeared and the mood lightened.

Cheese has always proved placatory in our marriage of nearly twenty five years and a plate of mozzarella and some excellent tomatoes (considering the season) soon had us back on track with conversation resumed. Some nubs of ciabbata with the perfect quantity of garlic and oil only improved things further.

A carafe of house Sauvignon Blanc acted as grease would to a gear and by the arrival of the main course we were gassing away like teenagers. Madam had some super pasta, I had the mother of all lamb shanks that may well have been cooking on low for much of the week.

A quick coffee to follow before we set off hand in hand with a skip and giggle to take in Jack at the 3 arena.

Good food, great staff, the early bird menu is really good value.

We visited on Sunday! 2nd time in a week. As we have been there many times in the past, we have always received a warm & hospital reception from all the staff. Never been disappointed in our food. This time we had Garlic Mushrooms, delicious, 3 mains, Lamb Shank, Steak and Pollo Sciliano, followed by Tiramisu. All delicious, and of course with wine and finally, Sambuca. Dan and his staff, as always so helpful and courteous, and at the end we have to get late night train back to Bangor, Co. Down!! Thank you Dan, and all the staff for most enjoyable evenings. V & P.

We went there at noon and was empty, the lady was very kind. Wings are amazing, it feels like when you make it yourself in a bbq ! Very very good and the food feels very natural and fresh. Kind of slow kitchen but was ok. Extra point for the image of the lady at the reception !
