“Comfortable setting for oven-fired pizza and imported beers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Located next to Hard Rock & Raddison hotels with a contrasting great beer selection and reasonable prices. 10-place bar is cramped for space but offers the enticing view into their beer cooler with over a dozen brands of bottled beers from Europe. Notables include Gulden Draak, Augustijin, Checkvar, Guinness, Paulaner, and Baltika. Mellow music and moderate lighting make for an enjoyable setting. Gas-fired stove oven is visible to one wide. One wall of video displays shows theme scenes. 50 seats at blue 4-top tables on ground floor and booth seating along circular raised level. Very friendly and attentive staff. Menu in Spanish includes thin-crust pizza, calzones, soups (Mushroom is great), salads and cheese/dough concoctions. Everything tastes fresh. Such a relief from the cold temperature and intense sound levels nearby at the Hard Rock. Also, the beer selection is far above average for Panama City.
And, items to go.

“Great pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Went to Brava for the first time last night. The pizza was really good! The restaurant is modern, and has neat decor. They have three huge television screens where they show a slideshow of pictures of Panama, and those were neat to see. Lots of good beers offered on the menu. Everyone else there was drinking sangria, so I'm assuming it's good too!

“Nice Thin Crusted Pizza.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

The pizzas are quite good. The ingredients are fresh and tasty. A little over priced. The use of fresh basil and oregano as opposed to the dried versions would make the pizzas even better.

“Consistent food and nice ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

I go to Brava often and they never go wrong. The pizza is excellent and there's usually a nice vibe, which makes it a fun place to go for drinks and a pizza. The sangria is really good too.
