If what you are looking for is a restaurant suffering from an overabundance of its own success.....look no further! First we were invited to scale some oversize bar stools (a bit tricky for our 92 year old friend with very limited eyesight). Then we needed...More

Highly recommend Bravas for amazing tapas. We booked a table because the person who told us about it suggested we did. So pleased as the small restaurant was packed. My sister and I shared chickpeas with spinach and cumin, patatas Bravas, chorizo cooked in cider,...More

We were lucky to get a table; a prior cancellation served us well. Bravas keep 16 seats around the bar and along the windows unreserved for walk in diners. They were all taken when we arrived. And the place...which is pretty small...was buzzing on a...More
