Lovely evening and although we knew we had a maximum time of 2 hours felt a little rushed

We have been to Bravas Tapas a number of times. The food is imaginative - a modern take on traditional tapas - consistently excellent, well presented and the staff are knowledgeable, helpful and friendly.

The staff were very kind and attentive. The food was delicious and the lamb chops were to die for. The restaurant looks out over St Katherine's dock which is very pretty. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to visitors.

Greeted promptly at the door, given our choice of tables. Food was amazing. Deep flavors, served timely so all the hot plates were still hot. The potatas bravas were rich and savory, the sea bass was outstanding as was the yellow tail special. The chorizo was complex and rich without being overly oily. The brioche bread pudding may have been one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. Worth the visit.

Nice location and setting, but the restaurant was let down by inattentive service and mediocre food. We ordered a selection from the tapas menu and some were excellent (I recommend the octopus and peppers), but on the whole were fairly average.

There are many other tapas places nearby of better quality, particularly near to London Bridge.

Can;t wait to go again next year.
it is a noisy place indeed, but it's TAPAS ; some people just like to overdo it, but then again, how can they not when they were just taken to mouthgasms from the amazing food and wine.

Till next year!

Food not as good as on a previous visit and the service is really irritating, staff constantly trying to remove plates even when there is some food left on them! At these prices, you really want to eat it all.

I've been to Bravas countless times. It never disappoints. If you haven't had the salmon roulade yet, you are doing yourself a disservice.

The food was amazing and the wine recommendation very good also. Would definitely recommend and plan to visit again

We all really enjoyed ourselves during our late lunch at Bravas Tapas. The waiters are very attentive without being overly so; and the food arrives very quickly even though it is cooked to order. The salmon rolls with sweet potato and wasabi were to die for!

Waitress had a serious attitude, serving sizes off especially when most tables are designed for 2 people and the pork belly was near impossible to eat with the tongs.. not well thought out

Excellent food, I usually don’t keep going to dessert but they had me wanting MORE. Very pretty restaurant, friendly staff, only drawback I like a little more space between me and my fellow patrons, the table we had was a little too close to the next table along so not much privacy. Otherwise fantastic across the board.

I’ve been to Bravas Tapas on many occasions and really enjoyed the food but on this occasion the food was below average, especially the lamb which was way undercooked. The potatoes bravas was plain and potatoes were undercooked. The best part of the meal was probably the great wine and service we were given. I will be returning to Bravas Tapas again. Hoping food will be much better.

I’ve been multiple times to Bravas Tapas and have always appreciated a lot.
The food is creative and delicious, the staff is very friendly and helpful and so is the boss.
The place is very cosy too.
Don’t hesitate going there for a romantic evening or some tapas and good wines with friends.
@BravasTapas: see you soon!

Service was quick and friendly. Food was prepared quickly. However the food was quite salty and mediocre for the price you are paying.
Should be factored that the prices may be what they are due to the location of the restaurant but the food taste just wasn’t where it should have been.

Third visit ... so they must be doing something right! Our children (11 and 15) loved it, finding enough on the menu to satisfy their 'modern' palates. As before, the lamb was superb, as was the garlic and mushroom bisque, and our GF eater was well catered for.
