Since 1999 Brava Bistro has delighted patrons by combining a casual and contemporary ambiance with a creative spin on traditional Mediterranean fare. The setting is comfortable elegance with a real ‘Bistro’ feel. Booths provide privacy for those that like an intimate meal, or for a cozy foursome sharing some tapas and wine, while the open area seating encourages larger groups to mix and mingle.
Artfully crafted edibles often go best as part of an entire epicurean experience, which includes beautiful surroundings, pleasant ambiance and excellent wine. According to the word on the page and on the street, Brava delivers these on all three counts. Still, the food is the centre of the experience, with a focus on intense flavours, unusual combinations and high quality. Think a slow-roasted pork sandwich with ginger pear compote, carrot-fennel soup, or grilled salmon with barbecue sauce on tarragon rosti with wilted spinach.
If you’re looking for a spot that has an upscale feel with a Bistro budget then you’ll love the combination at Brava Bistro. The quality of the food and extensive wine list is often found in a more high-end setting, yet here they are in the cozy and welcoming charm of this popular eatery.
