Situated on Middle Street in Galway city, the award-winning Cava Bodega showcases the very best of Spanish food and wine, in particular the global phenomena of tapas.
JP and Drigín first opened Cava in 2008 in Dominick Street and relocated to Middle Street in 2013. With the relocation came an opportunity to invigorate the restaurant. JP, working with local farmers and artisan producers, created a new focused menu taking the best from local and Iberian influences. Drigin designed a contemporary space with a strong focus on exposed and reclaimed materials to match the colourful and lively atmosphere of Cava. And in September 2013 Cava Bodega was born. Proven to be as popular as ever with the locals, tourists and food critics are also singing its praise. Cava Bodega is a great example of the international trend for good ethical casual food in a shared environment– with tapas, food is passed around the table, communal style, the dishes breed discussion and provide an alternative approach to eating.
