Home | Cava Bodega

Cava Bodega was established in 2008 by JP McMahon and Drigín Gaffey in order to bring something new to Galway and celebrate Spanish cooking. Due to our award-winning food and laid back feel, Cava Bodega soon became very popular among locals and tourists alike. 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 in a communal style.

The tapas menu showcases over 70 regional Spanish Tapas. Committed to supporting the local farmers and producers, we purchase our fish, meat, and vegetables locally.

The drinks menu is entirely devoted to Spanish wine and sherry with a focus on natural and organic wines. Our beers and ciders are a mix of Spanish and local craft.

So whether you are popping in for a quick tapa and a glass of vino or gathering with a group of friends or family, Cava Bodega is the perfect place to enjoy the tapas way of life!

Best tapas I’ve ever had at home or abroad. Wide menu and ridiculous flavours in every dish. Can’t wait to go back already.

In simple terms there are no other words. I’m a frequent visitor to Cava and the team, food and ambience are just excellent!

Our first long-awaited visit to Cava and it was well worth the wait. Food was amazing, great atmosphere, staff were lovely. Can't wait to go back.

It's hard to pick out a favourite part of our meal at Cava. We thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful. I have to shout out to the service too which was fantastic, our waitress was lovely, attentive, and the timing of serving our tapas was great too. Can't wait to go back. Cava Bodega is a new favourite.
