Great atmosphere, great food. Calamari is excellent! Perfect tapas that arent too small. They even have Tango/Salsa dancing downstairs sometimes; lessons and freestyle. Cool bar and also have a few wine barrels as tables.

I didn't need one. Just walk on up there seemed to be plenty of seating.

We didn't need a reservation, but we were dining midweek. It could get busy at weekends; I don't know. I'd be inclined to give them a call to be on the safe side.
