5 of us visited last night for dinner and I was really looking forward to a special meal as had been recommended this restaurant by a friend who went over a year ago. Service was prompt when we sat down and our starters were all lovely. However 4 out of 5 of the party ordered the beef fillet and each... More

Can't wait to go back. My friend and I (and my dog) went to La Cave on Saturday night and it was faultless. The staff were charming and lovely. The food was superb, I had scallops and a cheese selection (7 cheeses - bliss) the bread was great, wine fantastic, and the desserts (chocolate fondant and tart tatin) were some... More

We used to enjoy this place a lot but not after two bad experiences. We sat down and were ignored by staff for a significant amount of time. We tried getting their attention and eventually left. I don't think we will return any time soon.

We popped in yesterday for a quick drink - we ended up staying for hours, drinking wine, and sharing a cheese board and potted duck. I love sitting at one of the outside tables staring up at Southwark Cathedral - it feels like you're tucked away when in fact you're sitting on the edge of Borough market. Service is attentive...

I went to have a meal but the staff seemed so busy so just settled for cocktails.. I was a bit disappointed with the cocktails that my friend and I had which were a Kir classic and A mojito but they did not have the kick or taste had elsewhere. This restaurant and bar have so much potential but I... More

25 degrees for the first time this year and every river-front bar or roof top bar have stopped answering the phone as its just another city-worker trying to book an outdoor table for the after school Thursday night drinks. Not La Cave; an authentic French voice reassuring promises me a table outside for 6 that evening. ..Am I lucky or... More

This restaurant is tucked away in a great location next to Borough Market and London Bridge - it's a good place for a bit of a break from the busy streets and market. The wine list was good and relatively reasonably priced (for Central London), and we had the three course set menu which had a good range of choices,... More

La Cave is tucked in a nice spot under Southwark Cathedral close enough to Borough Market and the lovely produce on sale there but tucked away enough to be peaceful and quiet. Plenty of seats outside if the sun is shining and very atmoshpheric inside. I had a 2 course deal, my goats cheese starter was lovely. My steak bavet... More

Came here on a first date and it was a great spot - fantastic, extensive wine list and a buzzing atmosphere on a weekday night meant I'd thoroughly recommend it. We didn't eat here and only drank wine in the bar area The service was quite surly and half-way through our evening we were asked to share a tiny table... More

Beautiful space in the shadow of Southwark cathedral. Wonderful but homely French menu, great service, and an extensive wine list. Very reasonable price for the quality.
