I first visited Bravo in '97 and have been there fairly regularly ever since. With the new management recently taking over, I understand this inevitably comes with change. And what a change it is: TERRIBLE. The new (more limited and more expensive) menu no longer offered my previous favourite meals. So, no worries, I'll try something new. As did the... More

On the positive side, this cafe is sparkling clean - table numbers on little pots of greenery. Coffee was good, and HOT. Great position. We 'popped in' New Years Eve lunchtime - thought they had gone all French with the rather lovely cakes and pastries. As with most of the other reviewers, we are long time customers and almost shocked... More

It was sad to find that the old well-loved menu had changed so drastically but I guess new management wants to find a new direction. We went for brunch and, not only did we have to wait well over half an hour for our meals - it wasn't busy, about half full - but when they finally arrived, they were... More

We went for breakfast on NY eve with some friends. To start with the smoking and not smoking sections were not indicated. We had to change seats/tables because after we were seated someone came next to us and had a cigarette. 3 children were with us so we moved. We ordered and had to wait 15 minutes for the cafes....

It's always difficult when you look forward to popping in for your favourite marinara pizza only to find new owners new menu and what you order doesn't hit the mark. Sadly the new look menu is not our thing

Have been coming for many many years and not happy especially re disappearance from menu of my favourite risotto. Seems to be trying to be too hipster but alienating existing customers. Please provide feedback forms in restaurant and respond to issues.

I have been coming to Cafe Bravo regularly for around 10 years with my whole family and have just visited for the first time since the new management/staff/menu. (Now known as Bravo's Kitchen). We will NOT be returning again. After enquiring about gluten and dairy free options (the menu suggests to ask staff for advice) the chef rolled his eyes,... More

New management have destroyed this beautiful restaurant. Sad times indeed. Staff were generally nice but the head chef is unprofessional and rude. The pizza was bland with no taste. I've been coming here for over 10 years. This unfortunately will be the last. Bravo, I will miss you xo

Thank Jonny C
