Dog friendly patio. We had 5 types of various tapas, all excellent. Service was a little slow, but not a real problem.

Worth the wait. The food is to die for and it's a very cosy restaurant. Everything was good so I don't think you can go wrong trying out something new.

You definitely need reservation for a party of 10. They have tables they can move around, so, there should be no problem accommodating your group. But reservation is a must.
