Established in 2010, Cueva Bar is a gem in the University Heights neighborhood. If you're searching for a small, neighborhood bar with an intimate setting, look no further. Where else in San Diego can you find the head chef and owner serving your food and giving you insight into how your meal was prepared? Only at Cueva Bar, where co-founder Oz, a beer and wine aficionado and frequent contestant on Food Network's Cutthroat Kitchen, built a tapas, wine, and beer menu that will satisfy any palate. Listed among the top 10 San Diego restaurants and named Best Empanadas by San Diego Magazine, Cueva Bar offers happy hour specials, gluten-free and vegan-friendly menu items, and a sommelier curated wine list, making the dining experience at Cueva Bar truly unique.
At Cueva Bar, we are proud to offer delicious, globally-inspired tapas, a beer and wine list meticulously curated by chef Oz, and a draft selection of (mostly) local San Diego craft beer. For our gluten-free and/or vegan patrons, we offer a very dynamic and flexible menu that fits your dietary needs. We specialize in bringing people together with the help of shareable plates, friendly service, and an intimate setting!
