Always a good time

My husband and I go every now and then for cava, charcuterie and my favourite dish, the fried eggplant! We like to sit at the bar...good service. They also have a great sherry selection.

We went earlier this week with a small group of 5 for a business dinner. We had the "trust" menu meaning that they bring out a selection until you can't do more. It was Amazing and upon the waiters recommendation we had great wines paired with the food. Everybody love the food, wine and service. Would be back in a... More

It was total luck that we ended up dining at Cava on a Monday evening. Shortly after being seated, our waiter informed us that all wines - not just a small selection - were 50% off. Cava has a very extensive wine list (no surprise that it's heavy on Spanish selections) and they are reasonably priced to begin with. But... More

Tapas is a wonderful way to try different menu items, but even then, it was hard to stop at 6. Favourites included the venison and the ceviche. We started with a fig and a foie gras bite. The preparation of the fig was lovely and the blue cheese satisfyingly strong. The foie gras was very smooth. The skewered grilled venison... More

Cava is a small comfortable restaurant on Yonge north of St. Clair. Ambiance is quiet and pleasant and service is good. The food is mostly small plates of shareable tasty dishes. Lots of seafood choices. Nice wine selection. I enjoyed dinner here and I will likely return. It's a bit pricey for location and the type of food but it... More

I have been wanting to try Cava for years. It is located out of the tourist trek, hid in a shopping mall, but it is a great restaurant. Tapas/small plates with very inventive combinations and great execution. We chose the "let us cook for you option" and were delighted by the outcome. Perfect amount of food and perfect choices.

As I get older the site of a large plate of food does not appeal to me. At Cava the concept of eating a large variety of food in small portions is very appealing ! Tapas style eating seems to be the rage today but if the food can tempt you palate by only a small tasting perhaps with today's... More

After dining here, I can understand how it made Canada's list of top 100 Restaurants. The food was delicious and an incredible mix of things I had never had before. My friend and I took advantage of the "Let us feed you" option on the menu, which took all the guess work out of the experience and made it more... More

Trying hard to be Spanish when you're not. ... Overwhelming cumin flavours, no bread unless you ask, papas fritas served in a paper cone cut like "french fries"????... how can anyone rate this as a good Spanish or a "whatever" good restaurant. Fantastic selection of wine, nice decor but does that make it a good Spanish tapas restaurant? The ceviche... More
