Nice greeting when we arrived, friendly and attentive staff. Our waiter was happy to describe the dishes on the menu to us and help us select for our party of four with one vegetarian and one person allergic to nuts. Everything was of a high standard, the short rib dish with onion rings being the overall favourite but pork belly, octopus and garlic chilli prawns all delicious. A good choice for a special birthday lunch.

This restaurant enjoys a beautiful setting at St. Katharine's Docks, near Tower Bridge. The food is excellent and we loved the variety and originality of the tapas dishes.

Found this place by searching around our hotel (Guoman Tower)! Managed to book very easily online. Arrived to be seated and promptly served with menu. Food was delicious & thoroughly recommend the spinach roquettes! A tad pricey for what you get. Overall very pleased and quite filling food.

Most tapas places outside Spain tend to be a hit like the proverbial curates egg - good in parts - some dishes work - some are great - some not - there were 5 of us and between us we had most of the menu. Every dish was very very good. The fois gras arranged like a creme brulee was outstanding. It’s not cheap - but service is very good and you get what you pay for

Poor choices for those of us who are gluten free. Why do they need to stuff flour into most things?

Went with the misses for our 1 year anniversary and was completely blown away by the food. Prawns were soft and juicy, Octopus was to die for, the bravas were amazing! Service was quick but relaxed, a perfect afternoon.

Amazing tapas. Yes, not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for and every dish we had was divine. A highlight was the octopus, but honestly everything about our visit was excellent. Lovely staff, really quick table service and great location/atmosphere

Decent tapas, very limited menu and small expensive plates. Need to spend a lot to fill up. Service average to poor. Took ages to get a drink. Lovely location and nice restaurant, let down by a pretentious, limited, expensive menu.

Absolutely faultless from start to finish. Without doubt one of the best meals I have ever eaten. Every dish was a new taste experience. We were guided through the menu and were happy to take the recommendations given. We’re so glad we did, otherwise we may have missed out on some incredible food. Service was never rushed, we moved to the bar after eating for another couple of glasses of wine and genuinely didn’t want to leave. Highly recommended.

Food AMAZING and will be back. Good wine and reasonably priced. There were a number of tapas dishes that came with 3 pieces, which isn't ideal when you have table of 4 people. So it would be good for the waiter to give you the option to pay more and have 4 pieces or at least let you know when ordering so that you have the option of ordering extra.

The food was lovely and the service was good too - I would recommend but felt for the price the portions were just too small. I would possibly return but it certainly wouldn't be a regular venue given the cost.

Day trip to London & picked out Bravas Tapas due to its location near the Tower of London. Prebooked a table for 4pm but actually found we were the only diners so could easily have just walked in. Service was pretty fast & the tapas we ordered very tasty albeit small portions. We knew the fairly expensive prices beforehand so can’t complain, just would have a bit more food on our plate. An enjoyable experience but wouldn’t rush back.

I usually am not a fan of tapas places because I always find that one specific dish is amazing and I would just want to eat a big portion of that -- here that doesn't happen. Every single dish that comes to the table is better than the previous one. I have tried their entire menu, and it is some of the best food I've had in London. The wine list is also really good, and the ambiance is worth the trip to St Katherine's Docks.

I would recommend to a friend with the caveat that the service is poor to say the least. We went on the hottest day of the year so far and we had massive issues getting water and then getting refills. The place didn’t appear to have fans or air con so you’d think they would be all over making sure their customers were hydrated. Thankfully Harry stepped in and made sure we got refills of ice and water.
Food was fabulous though so hopefully they can get the service to the same level

We were three for lunch on the hottest day on record. Cold beer, reasonably priced wine and excellent food. The Maitre'D was great, as were the staff. Service was timely and pleasant. Food was just right, with proper tapas portions. Unusual to see a vegetable/vegetarian section separate on the menu.
What more could you ask for?

We are traveling in London from the US and BrVas Tapas was the perfect ending to a great day of sightseeing. We enjoyed the Thames River Cruise at dusk and were served champagne and canapés. So the tapas menu was a great way for us and our friends to have small plates of lots of interesting tasty bites. The salmon was particularly delicious and we enjoyed the wine and beer selections as well.
