Cava is a fun, trendy restaurant in downtown Portsmouth. Reservations are definitely required for a table in the summertime. My boyfriend and I went here for dinner and even though we had reservations, they sat us at the bar in the basement, next to the kitchen. That was a little annoying. However, that being said, being seated in the basement part of the restaurant was highly preferable to being seated upstairs. Tables and patrons are packed in like sardines and it's so loud upstairs. The basement is more intimate and you can have a real conversation. We shared a collection of a la carte tapas and had some yummy wine. I definitely remember the paella being good. A fun place and would certainly consider going back again, just maybe not in the summertime ;).
