Good pizzas good mussels. Does what it says on the tin. Can be very busy and the picnic bench style dining is not for everyone

Just what everyone felt like, and this place didn't disappoint despite very busy, touristy location. Good choice of sauces, service a bit random but when you wave they come.

Visited here a few years ago and service has lost its personality since then. The food was good but paid nearly five euro for a Ben and Jerry's Ice-Cream tub put on a plate with a spoon that could be bought in the shop for half the price. Lively atmosphere, but disappointed with blasé staff. If moules are your thing... More

A cheerful place with a simple, winning formula. I chose a lardon & cream sauce and my dinner companion chose a Mexican sauce for his moules. Both were OK but certainly not 'gourmet'. The service was a little surly but overall a good option and I'd go back.

Four of us dined at La Cave and really enjoyed our meals. One of us ordered the moules which came with a serve of chips, the rest of us ordering pizza. The moules were thoroughly enjoyable and the pizzas were fantastic with great crispy bases. Staff were friendly and the service was very good. Really enjoyable meal.

Never failed to enjoy moules at this cave. Great service, food excellent. Visited many times over the last 10 years, consistently good. Great atmosphere. Even worth waiting in a queue at peak season times for half an hour just to enjoy their moules with various sauces.They also do pasta and pizza but if you visit it you must have the... More

The restaurant has a great selection of different flavoured mussels (moules) and some nice accompanying chips (frites). The pizzas are also good. I have found over the years that the mussels can be hit and miss - sometimes they're nice and big and the majority have opened during cooking. Sometimes they're small and mean and you can get quite a... More
