The story of LUVIDA
How we arrived…
Cousins Lubo and Daniel opened their first restaurant People’s in Cavan in 2016 and since then have brought their own brand of fine casual dining to a growing and loyal customer base. Of course it hasn’t happened without hard work and dedication to delivering the best experience they know how.
This time around they are working with business partner and executive chef Vincent Clarke, renowned for his flair and ability to pay tribute to classic cuisine while blending more contemporary nuances. Vincent will bring his keen eye for trends and attention to detail, elevating further their already proven winning formula.
Finally, why are we called Luvida?
Naming a restaurant is tricky business. You can choose to name it after the type of cuisine you’re going to serve. You can choose something vague and hope it sounds trendy. Or you can just have three people who couldn’t decide on a name, so their handsome and intelligent manager can suggest to mash the owner’s names together – Lubo (lu), Vincent (vi) & Daniel (da).
Also, it sounds trendy!
Our mission is a simple one, to deliver the finest food from quality local ingredients and suppliers, the best wines from around the world and a welcoming friendly environment to enjoy it all in and without a scary bill at the end. This isn’t an easy prospect, but we work best with a challenge.
Whether it’s a meal out to give yourself a night off from the washing up, a family gathering, birthday or a special occasion of any kind, we’re delighted you chose Luvida.
A place to wine, a place to dine
How it all came to be…
Our team have worked together with some of the most popular and highly respected and awarded restaurants in the country and abroad. So much so that we decided it was our time to deliver it for ourselves. We are incredibly proud of our work, reputation and the friends we’ve made along the way
And they all inspire us to deliver the best possible restaurant experience we know how to. Our pride comes from the thousands of satisfied customers we have served and become loyal to over the years. Our drive comes from knowing that there are so many more friends out there for us to entertain.
We hope you’ll enjoy everything we have to offer, because after all we firmly believe that life should be full of…
“Great drinks, Great food, Good friends”.
Our Lunch menu available on Thursday and Friday 12 – 3.00pm
One very important thing to remember about wine is that it doesn’t matter where it came from or what it costs, if you enjoy it, that’s all that matters. We enjoy our wine in Luvida and for that reason we have taken a lot of care in curating a wine list that will satisfy any palate and dish on our menu.
From some of the best vineyards and wineries around the world we have chosen our favourites and can stand by all of them as being something we would recommend with confidence.
Cocktails made to perfection
Sometimes a cocktail is the only thing that will do for a special occasion. At Luvida we absolutely love cocktails. We love learning new techniques, flavour combinations, ingredients as well as staying loyal to well known favourites.
We use only the freshest ingredients and high quality spirits in all of our cocktails and pride ourselves on delivering superbly consistent and refreshing cocktails each and every time. We’re certified by the IBA (International Bartender Association) too, but aside from that we know we make great cocktails because we only drink great cocktails.
Gift cards the perfect choice
We never get out as often as we’d like, so the surprise of a gift card for Luvida restaurant is the ideal way to remind a loved one to relax and enjoy themselves every now and again. They can be purchased online and sent via post to any address you like, and can also be purchased in our restaurant during opening hours. Beautifully presented, valid for 2 years and redeemable against either our Early Bird or A La Carte menus for food and beverages, it really is the perfect choice.
