Great family restaurant. Targeted for families and they get it mostly right. The only gripe I have is the cost of kids meals, for very young kids who don't eat a lot it's quite expensive. That said the food is very good. Lots of choice....More

A little bit of Mediterranean cuisine in County Meath! La Bucca was opened in 2004, by Russell Bailey in Ashbourne to provide family friendly dining to the fastest expanding town in County Meath. Customer demand led to the opening of La Bucca Ratoath in 2007 and La Bucca Dunboyne in 2010. We would be delighted to welcome you to any of our venues to try one of our tantalizing dishes and a glass of wine. Keep an eye out for our daily changing specials, which have a leaning towards seafood but has something to suit every palate. Please remember at peak times booking is essential – especially at weekends. Look forward to welcoming you soon.
