Bravas is a well done tapas bar that also serves excellent gin. Each gin is individually paired with garnish and paired incredibly well. We were mainly there for drinks but couldn't resist ordering some tapas. The aubergine with molasses was excellent, as was the iberico pork. I will definitely be going back to fully sample the tapas; make sure you... More

I don't even know where to start! The food is simply amazing and the staff are super friendly. The wine list has some great choices and i'm never left feeling empty. The only downside is that everyone knows about it so recommend pre-booking a table where possible! The aubergine is a firm favourite and I cant wait to come back

Went with my partner to try some tapas hoping that would be real spanish food and it was! Really good and reasonable price as well. The only thing is that the bravas weren't typical spanish ones, the slices and salsa was different (although tasty), but the rest of the food was quite good. We will be back!

Love this place, my fave tapas in Bristol. Don't eat a lot of meat and fantastic vegi options. Tortilla cake, potatas braces, salads all fantastic! Chorizo cooked in cider is fantastic also. Hake is also beautiful! Always changing specials and lots of variety and choice for those that love meat, fish and vegetables.

Great food and great service. Staff were very friendly and Tapas came quickly. Favourites were the skirt steak and patatas bravas. Would also recommend the gingria though not usually a gin drinker.

Booked Bravas for dinner before visiting the Everyman Cinema. The venue is small with little room around your table but rather than be a negative thing it just adds to the atmosphere. Service is excellent and relaxed. The tapas was excellent, bursting with flavours and perfectly cooked. If you enjoy gin then this lifts your experience even higher. The drinks... More

A great meal out with the only downside being that it was impossible to narrow down the great menu when I made my choices! Super service too.

We turned up on a Saturday evening without booking and there was luckily space for us to sit at the bar. They did a large range of gin and tonics and we ordered a range of tapas that were served as soon as they were ready so as soon as we finished one dish we got the next. Our favourites... More
