“Head and shoulders above the rest”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

We have been visiting Denia for over 20 years and eaten in many of the fine restaurants it has to offer but on our visit last week we found one which stands head and shoulders above the rest. On entering the El Bravo restaurant you are warmly welcomed and made to feel a special customer. The menu offers a wide choice of dishes and excellent wines. The food is simply superb and beautifully presented and made our evening very enjoyable, so much so we returned for lunch on our last day before flying back to England. Luckily we had booked a table as the resturant was busy, and again we were made to feel special customers There was a menu del dia available which offered a good choice which we selected. Again the food was quite superb and rated by my wife as nice a meal as she had ever had. The price for such an excellent meal was most reasonable. It will be our No. 1 choice on our next visit to Denia.

Your review is most kind and very much appreciated.
Thank you for dining with us twice during your recent visit and I'm really pleased our restaurant and staff were to your liking.
We have only been open for 1 year and knew that we'd need to create something different to entice customers away from their usual places. Your feedback is really positive and our staff will be thrilled to learn that we made you feel special.
We are quite a small restaurant so booking is always advisable.
We look forward to welcoming you back when you return to Denia.
Best regards

“Excellent Restaurant”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Good Food, Good Service and a Great location well worth a visit. We enjoyed some really tender steaks cooked to our taste by a very attentive staff who went out of their way to make our meal enjoyable. The outlook onto the yachts in the Marina made the setting complete.

“Still outstanding”
Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

We are lucky enough to live in Denia and to be able to visit restaurants of this quality underpins our decision to live here. The overall quality of service and food is outstanding we would (and do!) recommend El Bravo to anyone!
My wife and I ate there this last weekend and it lived up to our expectations. By local standards this isn't cheap, but the old adage you get what you pay for justifies the pricing. By way of an example, pre-dinner drinks, 3 courses and a fab bottle of red wine (Trilogia from Valencia - try it, a bargain at 17€) came to just over 70€.
Fantastic - try it!

We are so grateful that you have posted another review about your dining at El Bravo.
The Trilogia wine is probably my favourite and a very popular choice. We try and keep our prices competitive and to provide an overall dining experience that our customers will think is very good value for money.
Thank you for your visits and also for recommending us to others. We are coming up to our first anniversary and are excited about the year ahead and look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
Best regards

Your review, feedback and photos are really appreciated and thank you for visiting El Bravo.
We were determined that our service levels should be very high and this is an area of great importance to all of our staff. Clearly our food needs to be high quality too so we prepare our dishes daily using fresh and seasonal ingredients.
We hope to see you again.

“Nice and cosy little restaurant”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Nice wide range on the menu from cheap to expensive.
One of the best restaurants in Denia.
Only the benches don't sit very nice so be smart and take a table with chairs and dik a nice bottle of red Basque wine.

Thank you for visiting El Bravo and sharing your feedback.
Our menu does offer a wide range of dishes and this was deliberate as our customers come from many different countries.
Most of our tables are with individual chairs but we do have some bench seating on our outside terrace. We will always be happy to let our customers choose their preferred location or table and strongly recommend booking as we are generally busy.
We hope to see you again soon.
Best regards
