Cava Tapas & Wine Bar

Blink and you might miss the whimsical brick-laid street where Cava is located. Tucked away from the main drag, embellished with greenery, the outdoor space features a handful of cozy wooden tables and chairs set alongside a pedestrian-only alley, providing patrons with a quiet getaway in the heart of downtown Portsmouth. Sip wine, share a few tapas, and marvel at this hidden gem.
