delish! - Edit

We visited Sova today (Thursday) and found it to be absolutely amazing!
Each of us took a 3-course menu (25€).
The ingredients were fresh and the taste was delicate!
The service stuff was super-friendly!

Cons: I think you have to make a reservation

Delicious - Edit

This place is fanatic in every sense of the word. Fantastic food, wine selection and waiting staff. The seitan stake was soft and deliciously! It’s rather expensive but well worth the price. Definitely visit it when you are in the city

Awesome! - Edit

Unfortunately I only made it once to Sova. I ate the burger and the cheesecake, both delicious and big. Definitely worth the price. I'll probably come back to Dublin just to try the rest of the menu. The staff was very sweet as well. Great place!

Tasty food - Edit

The food is great, really tasty.
Generous quantity of food.
Deserts were awesome, very elaborate.

On the counter side it is always very full, so, it is hard to get a table expecially if you are in a large group. Also, maybe because of that, the service is slow.

Excellent food! - Edit

I wish this place was near me - I'd be here all the time! We had a short trip to Dublin so we didn't have much time and went to Sova on a Sunday for brunch. I had apple cinnamon pancakes and my husband had gnocchi. Both were excellent and portions were huge. For dessert we had chocolate mousse which was dark and rich.

Every single dish they brought from the kitchen for other tables we looked at and salivated. Everything looked excellent.

We wished we were in Dublin longer so we could have tried more from their menu.

The place is small and seating is limited. I would recommend reservations.

Amazing experience - Edit

I LOVED this place!! All vegan is always good :) Very friendly staff, minimalist interior, focus on (fantastic) food. The seitan was delicious (best vegan kebap I've ever had), huge portions. The pancakes my non-vegan friend had were really nice too! Burgers looked amazing. Favourite restaurant in Dublin so far.

Exquisite! (Reservations strongly recommended) - Edit

Sova Vegan Butcher is an instant favorite. It's a curious hybrid: The atmosphere is low-key, casual, and friendly, while the food is haute cuisine. Works for me!

On the recommendation of my very friendly and helpful server, I ordered the three-course special with the gyoza, schnitzel, and cheesecake. The gyoza and schnitzel were among the best I've ever had anywhere, and the cheesecake was pretty good, too.

I arrived for an early dinner, without a reservation, and it turned out it was fortunate that I was alone this time, as the place was totally full except for a one-person table at the back, so they were able to squeeze me in. When I called the following week (around 2pm) to make a reservation for four at dinner, they were already fully booked for the evening, and apparently that isn't unusual, so I'd recommend making a reservation at least a day in advance if you can. It's worth it!

Enjoy!

Pros: Excellent creative cuisine, friendly service

Cons: Might not get a table without reservation, parking can be a challenge

Incredible - Edit

I went there with a meat-eater and we were both mind-blown. We started with the red mince gyoza, which was delicious, then he had the gigantic chia burger, and I ordered the schnitzel, which felt and tasted like melt-in-your-mouth chicken fried to perfection. The raspberry cheesecake was a little disappointing, however: it wasn't smooth enough to my taste, you could feel the texture of the nuts. Overall though, this was probably the best vegan restaurant I've been to so far.

Pros: Excellent food, Large portions, Friendly staff

Delicious - Edit

I had dinner here. The food is amazing, just make sure to go with time because the service may be a little slow and it is busy. I went twice and both times it was plenty of people. If you're in Dublin, you cannot miss it!

gorgeous and delicious - Edit

Meat-eating hubby was happy and yours truly was in heaven! I had the lovely schnitzel with mushrooms and beans and a spiral of potatoes that was straight out of Dr Seuss. By which I mean, interesting to look at as well as tasty. Just loved everything here!

amazing! - Edit

So good! The three course dinner was the highlight of our trip -- mushroom scallops, gyoza, porq medallions, desserts all delicious. Really excellent seitan -- flavorful, thoughtful, and carefully made. I'd eat here all the time if I lived in Dublin!

I finally got to try a traditional Irish breakfast - Edit

One of the few purely vegan places in Dublin and definitely has plenty of taste. The moment I saw that they had the traditional Irish Breakfast as a brunch items, I knew I needed to try it and it was every bit as delicious as it looked! Great food, staff, and energy!

A vegan gem - Edit

I went here for dinner and me and my friend both ordered a 3-course menu (with different dishes). The menu is understandably very focused on faux meats but I thought the dishes were quite fresh and interesting! I had a wonderful starter of deep-fried gyozas, a seitan steak with mashed potatoes for mains, and a chocolate-avocado mousse for dessert. The presentation was fantastic, and while I have maybe had better seitan before, all dishes were delicious, especially the starter. The portions were very generous, the prices more than reasonable and the staff extremely friendly. I thoroughly recommend this restaurant - just make sure you book a table in advance as the space is quite small!

Pros: unusual, inspired and thought through menu, super friendly staff, very reasonable prices

Cons: small space

Great Food and Service - Edit

This is my second time, since I don't live in a Dublin. I love Sova! The food is delicious and well prepared. Everything I have tried there was really good. I wish I could have a Sova in the US.

Wonderful! - Edit

All vegan, all extremely well prepared, all served with a smile and a friendly comment - and the taste was to die for! We couldn't stop eating even when we were full - 3 courses each and not a tiny bite left πŸ˜‚ So happy we decided to go there after seeing the great reviews. We were NOT disappointed!

Supremely delicious - Edit

I was really impressed with this place. The food looked and tasted great. Nicely presented and some really nice combinations left me wondering how they did it and pretty amazed. Nice atmosphere too - the kind of hip place I like to be in. Friendly servers. I also went with a non-vegan friend and they were really impressed too. Perhaps a bit expensive (although don't know local prices) but totally worth it. I'd highly recommend and if I'm in the city again I'd try and go back.

Pros: Yum yum, Nice small friendly place

Best Vegan Food In The World - Edit

I only regret that during my visit to Dublin, due to my schedule, I could not eat at Sova every day. It truly has the best vegan food in the world!! The wait staff are wonderful and the food is delicious - wishing they would move to Denver, CO, so I could eat there every day!!!

Sooooooo good! - Edit

I went there twice and took the kebab both times. It is so good, the seitan has a nice smoked flavour but doesn't really taste like meat, which I'm glad about. Salad on the side and vegetables in the kebab, just perfect. Bring non veggie friends, they'll love it!
The food is filling but not stuffing and there's always space left for a nice dessert (I tried the chocolate/avocado mousse and the cheesecake, both delicious!).
I highly recommend this restaurant!!! And I'm afraid I'll have to go back to try their other dishes (good thing that the price is really ok, around 10€ for a main course, 5€ for the dessert) :P

Pros: Really good food, nice staff, good atmosphere

Cons: your clothes smell like the food for days!
