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

I'd read about this 'restaurant ' on trip advisor and we love tapas so decided to book while we were visiting Bristol. Booking by phone was very easy, they text you to let you know you have a table. We made a mistake in getting dressed up and expecting a leisurely evening meal. This is not a negative review, we... More

I had a few clients coming to Clifton for a business meeting, having eaten at Bravas once before and thinking the food was amazing I booked a table for 4. We turned up at 17:30 on a Saturday and the small venue was understandably busy. Every table was booked so I would advise booking a few weeks in advance. The... More

I went to Bravas for my third visit this Valentine's Day. As with my previous experiences both the food and the level of service were faultless. The staff were very friendly and personable yet efficient. We had seven different options from the menu and they were all brilliant. The aubergine in molasses is an absolute must!

We were recommended to come here by a friend and luckily he booked weeks ahead to ensure that we got a seat. It is a small venue and a small amount of tables are bookable and a few seats are for people who pop in on the off chance. The tapas is dellicious (Patas Bravas are amazing) and we did... More

Am still sat here now, on a stool at the bar, comfortably gull of some if the best tapas outside of Spain. Closest comparison outside of London is Ole in Bath. Food, atmosphere, drinks and service all just tight.

Visited for Lunch and was blown away by the quality of the dishes and the excellent value for money! 2 adults and a toddler were left stuffed including incredible desserts for £32! An absolute must visit. Will be back next time I'm in Bristol.

Thank BCNCat
