The food was incredible and so was the ambiance. I will return here for the food but the view helps too.

The food was really delicious - crispy Patatas Bravas, melt in your mouth lamb, gambas that actually had flavour. 6 plates with 4 glasses of wine set us back around £80 (including service). We’ll be back!

The food was excellent and the service exceptional. During these stressful COVID-19 times one can appreciate the simple pleasure of eating out you normally take for granted.

Staff were helpful and attentive but above all lovely people. It was our anniversary and they made it very special.

Such nice venue & great quality food. Service was amazing, the man who seated and served us heard it was my birthday and bought out cake which was such a nice touch. Will deffo be returning as soon as we are back in London.

Bit of a shame after reading all the good reviews. Difficult times for businesses so that's taken into consideration but since we've been going back to restaurants we've felt particularly welcome until coming here. No drinks menu. Clearly understaffed made the atmosphere tense. Expensive for what we had although tasty. Asked about a particular wine and was told "we don't have rubbish wine here" which felt awkward and rather like we were a nuisance for asking .

I woke up the next morning thinking about the spinach croquettes. Thats how good they are.
We also had the potatas bravas, pork belly, gambas, short rib, padron peppers, lamb chops and seabass. All the dishes were really good but the spinach croquettes were our fave. We will definitely be back.

The food and the service both very good, but the dishes are small, in some cases (sea bass fillet) one bite each, for two of us. Tapas is for sharing!!! You need to order most of the menu, be warned...

The food was amazing, absolutely lovely.
The Covid precautions were nonexistent. I've been to some restaurants that have taken this seriously - table spacing and screens, but it didn't look like anything had been done here. If I hadn't been so hungry and looking forward to it I wouldn't have gone in.
Appreciate it's hard to stay in business with fewer tables (and the shorter time), but some effort would be appreciated.

I was really impressed with Bravas Tapas - I've lived in Spain so have quite high standards regarding tapas and this restaurant didn't disappoint. We had patatas bravas, pan con tomate, pimientos de padron, the octopus and lamb chops, which were all delicious. Price was about right. Great ambience and service. No complaints and would definitely go back!

I wish I could be more positive but from the moment we sat down we felt rushed and an inconvenience. I understand the new time pressures but for the prices you charge I was like be in a fast food joint. We were also placed far too close to our fellow diners so much so that you could hear every bit of conversation.

I'm sorry but I really can't see how I could possibly recommend.

Bravas Tapas was an unexpected find when staying near St Katherines Dock. Having overindulged the night before we wanted something a little lighter and this venue did not disappoint. After choosing four tapas dishes we asked out delightful waitress if that would be enough - she recommended usually three per person, but start with two and then order more if needed. She was right - we did order two more and the "Brava Potatoes | Salsa Brava | Whipped-to-Order Alioli: we so delicious we had a second plate. Also the pork belly - just delightful. Usually Brava Potatoes come ready mixed but to have the potatoes and sauce separate was just perfect. We loved it here. The loss of one star was because it was a little dark inside so I had to get my phone out to read the menu with its torch. Dessert was equally delicious

This restaurant has fantastic food and a great atmosphere. We have eaten a lot of tapas and this was some of the best. The smoked salmon and sweet potato was tremendous.
