Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

You'll be able to try many different dishes. We were seated quickly, food was brought out quite fast, and service was attentive. The menu was very comprehensive, indicating allergens and where vegetarian and vegan options could be provided. Great croquetas, and found their seared pork...belly delicious, but some vegetarian dishes were lacking in flavour.More

We went to Cava for our anniversary and we enjoyed a lot the experience! The place is cozy, the service is awesome and the food is delicious! It was our first time going to a tapas restaurant and we really enjoyed being able to eat...many different small dishes. We feel like the seats and space were a little bit short, especially for ordering various plates, but it didn’t affect our overall satisfaction. Between the dishes we ordered, our favourite were definitely the croquettes, the pil oil prawns, fried calamari and empanadas. For the deserts, we also really enjoyed the churros. We were a little bit disappointed with the scallops as we were expecting at least around 2 scallops in the plate, but it was only 1 and the rest of the dish was only a sauce. The pork ribs were also a bit disappointing as they were not very meaty. All in all, the restaurant is really nice for couples or groups of friends who’d like to chat while having some drinks and different dishes on the table to share.More

I have visited twice with my daughter. Allergens are clearly marked on the menu and there was plenty for me (a coeliac) to choose from. The staff were friendly too. Recommended

We always find fabulous dishes here, or in any of the Porthouse restaurants. The gambas pil pil is fabulous and a staple every time we visit. The food is always delicious and the service is excellent. Such a gorgeous place with a lovely atmosphere.

The visit started underwhelmingly and when we asked to move tables, when shown where we were to be placed, were told it was not possible because of the seating plan in place. I tend to like a bit of flexibility and as all tables were...pre booked I get the logic but I also see we could have been directly swapped with another table and the plan changed because not everyone was in situ. That was however the ONLY thing that could have changed to improve the visit because the food and service were both off the scale good. We came here on a recommendation and would heartily do the same to anyone else. The manager served us and made all of us feel exceptionally welcome. Even when the littlest one smashed a glass, it was cleared up within 30 seconds without fuss, thank you for that. The food was amazing , great selection, incredible flavours and perfect quantities. We didn’t have a morsel left on any plate and would without reservation recommend this restaurant to anyone.More

Thank you Cava for the lovely diner on Friday. Staff was very nice and friendly. The food is unbelievable, every type of food for every taste served in a confortable and safe environnement. Aside of the food they have great selection of wine and the...prices are very affordable. I was reassured to see all the mesures taken to respect COVID19 hygiene protocols. All the staff wearing a mask and respecting distances. I would definitely recommend this place and will come back very soon!More

Great choice of tapas and other options. We selected several small dishes and could complain about none of them. The wine was exceptional but quite pricey at 40 Euros. Atmosphere was dark and cosy - ideal for couples. Will definitely be back and see there...is also a sister restaurant.More
