This tapas spot's popularity with locals and tourists is completely understandable. Our waiter was friendly and attentive, despite being extremely busy, and the menu was extensive. The most imaginative dishes we tried were a tomato and watermelon salad--squares of red fruit sprinkled with a light...More

We live in Mexico and some friends who grew up in the area recommended finding Bravas. It was a hot sunny Saturday afternoon and we were hiking around on foot and had to look for the little house, but well worth the search! We sat...More

High expectations having read very positive reviews. Pleasant staff, nice choice of outdoor or indoor tables. Don't expect to linger over your small plates however as prompt and efficient service can work both ways; plates were delivered at some speed and removed equally rapidly. Happy...More

Indoor and outdoor dining (outdoor patio is best). Be sure to go for Paella night. It is one of the best. Very good selection of typical Spanish tapas. Local fresh ingredients amd a full bar. Their Samgria selection is so good.

Bravas is one of six restaurants owned by this group and clearly sets the standard for authentic Spanish tapas. They included our favorites (Croqettas and Potatas Bravas) and we paired it with the Sangria. Sit outdoors in the courtyard if available.

Came here randomly after a tasting and ordered a few plates that were recommended. I thought they were good, but nothing amazing. A little pricey for what we had in my opinion.

Great little place - excellent food, phenomenal service, good wine list. We went here on an incredibly hot day but sitting outside was still superb. Beautiful deck and patio. Good wines - local and Spanish - and an incredibly friendly woman as our waiter. They...More

You definitely need reservation for a party of 10. They have tables they can move around, so, there should be no problem accommodating your group. But reservation is a must.

Hola Jumaden. We don't take reservations to eat at the bar. It is first come-first served.
