Service was great barring the desire to constantly top up your glass, but once stopped all was fine. Food was fantastic and would certainly recommend! Great atmosphere and feel to the place whilst also in a great location!!

Generally very good, and if not for a slightly below par salad item, we loved it all. The bisque was tremendous, and catered well for GF eater.

Another fun evening at Bravas Tapas
Although we had a slightly awkward table (for 3 and by the backdoor) it was a good night
I’m not sure the couple on a romantic date were too happy with our proximity
The Xmas party of 12 bought the noise levels up nicely
We under ordered for a change and enjoyed every dish
It is a fun venue with great food and we will be back again soon

Extremely delicious food (particularly the seafood dishes), attentive service, and all set in St Katherine’s dock. What’s not to love!? I would happily recommend as a great place to dine for couples or groups alike, and I will definitely be making a return visit to Bravas Tapas.

Food was fantastic, service was very poor. Forgotten orders and servers immediately clearing the table after taking your last bite and sometimes even before taking your last bite.

Discovered this place completely random two years ago in search for a nice dinner. Since the location is one of my absolute favourite in London I chose to go there. The food was overwhelming and since then I keep coming back. Taste and quality of food stayed perfectly consistent. Great choice of wines. My favourite: the octopus, best I ever had.

This is my third visit to Bravas Tapas. I much prefer the earlier times, it’s much quieter and more relaxed. Food was excellent as ever, staff lovely. Took my husband for his birthday and he really enjoyed it. Will be returning soon !!

First time here for lunch, although we've been for dinner in the past. First time visit for our friends and they loved it. The food is excellent and I'd happily recommend this restaurant.

One point to note on the service: although it was good, the staff overfilled wine glasses and refilled them well before it was necessary, to ensure the sale of another bottle. A request to leave the second bottle unpoured until we had emptied our glasses was soon forgotten and glasses were overfilled once again.

Stumbled upon this place by chance and couldn't have been happier with the results. We were a table of 5 so they gave us a comfy booth which gave us a view of all the tasty things being prepared in the kitchen. The waitress gave great recommendations about the number of tapas we should order as well as what we might like. Excellent food, decent drinks, and cool decor. And, the location is great as there are tons of posh little wine bars and other places to grab a drink before or after dinner.

Last minute find after a day of exploring the City of London and Tower Bridge. Quite the hidden gem. I found the restaurant on yelp and the reviews were quite good. got last minute reservations. Had the octopus, lamb, quail, and brioche which were quite fantastic! the sea bass was good as well. I would definately come back again!

We tried several items on the menu. Our table liked the pork belly and octopus the best.

Having been to Barcelona several times and experienced the tapas bars there, I can only rank Bravas Tapas as being very good. Not outstanding, but good. From the perspective of value, I'd rate Bravas Tapas as "Good", again not excellent.

Would I go back, given a choice? Perhaps.....but it wasn't one of our favorite meals during our visit to London.

Having previously eaten at Bravas tapas and absolutely loved the food ,yesterday evening was a disappointing experience . The food was below par , the potatoes were burnt and soggy , the grilled octopus was dry , the bread with the tomato was sour . The only redeeming feature was the sea bass which was done to perfection . The Sangria was was wonderful . Very packed for a Tuesday evening and loud .
Service was also slow , had to ask for the bill 3 times .
