Enjoyed our tapas very much. Food came out quickly and service was pleasant and efficient. I had a cod dish also tuna with anchovies and roasted red peppers. Very delicious. We also had the ham on crusty bread.

Yes, you just have to wait after having your name listed and there is no waiting area where you can sit. Be prepared to wait at least 30 minutes during peak hour. As the others mentioned, it's worth the wait.
