We enjoyed our recent visit but the food was let down by the service. We ordered one starter, nachos to share on our table. A few minutes later the nachos came and were delivered to the table next to us. They had also orders these so they tucked in whist we waited and waited. Just as we were about to ask were our starter was a plate of nachos was delivered but to the same tables as before, along with the rest of their starters. We looked on as the sent their nachos back and we had to explain that we thought they were ours. We finally get them!
The delay in getting the starter did mean that our main courses arrived very quickly after the starters. The pasta dishes were very good. We then asked for another bottle of water and it came very quickly, unfortunately to the wrong table. We had to ask for another, and although the waitress appeared to realise what she had done there was no apology.
We really liked the atmosphere of this restaurant and we enjoyed the food but not impressed by the service.

While there is no view, it's nice to eat somewhere that is different from everywhere else. Le caveau is definitely that.
The service was great - friendly and attentive. The food was amazing. We ordered the nachos to share and the tomato salsa was homemade and tasted fantastic.
But it was the lasagne that was the best dish of the night. It was very fresh and with a crispy top. Great meat to pasta ratio and tasty sauce. Magnifique!

Would highly recommend.
