Bravo, located at the Sheraton Abu Dhabi Hotel and Resort, offers mouth-watering Spanish tapas and refreshing Spanish beverages. The menu features a selection of delectable tapas as well as traditional delicacies.
If you wish to dine at Bravo, valet park at Sheraton Abu Dhabi Hotel and Resort and walk to the side of the hotel, the winding stairs will lead you to Bravo. Bravo offers guests the opportunity to enjoy outdoor dining on the terrace where they can enjoy the hustle and bustle of the city or to enjoy the vibrant sounds of the live flamenco guitar music indoors.
Tonight we opt to dine indoors so we can enjoy the live music. The restaurant has a very distinct homely feel, like you are dining at a friends house, this is mostly due to the warm welcome given by the team.
To start we order a selection of tapas, Albondigas con Tomate, beef meat balls in tomato sauce, Hongos al Ajillo, button mushrooms in garlic butter and herbs, Las Rabas, fried calamari rings with tartar sauce, Patatas Bravas, crispy potatoes with spicy tomato sauce and garlic aioli and Gambas al Ajillo, shrimp ‘Guindilla’ pepper in olive oil and garlic. All the dishes are delightful but the Patatas Bravas and the Gambas al Ajillo really stand out with their bold flavours, these two dishes are a must order. Be sure to enjoy the garlic and olive oil dip from the Gambas al Ajillo with a slice of warm bread.
For mains we select the Paella de Mariscos, Spanish rice with seafood, fish and vegetables. It’s been years since we ate Paella, mainly due to the lack of being unable to find it on any menus, so we are just a little bit excited at the prospect of this dish. We wait patiently and hope it tastes as good as we image.
The live flamenco guitar music is really enjoyable, the music is relaxed and at just the right level to make it enjoyable without having to shout over the table, finally a restaurant that gets the volume right.
A little while later the large piping hot Paella is placed before us, we take our spoon and take our first bite, amazing, the Paella is sensational. The portion size is based on two sharing but this dish can easily feed three people. It tastes great and we can see why this dish is Bravo’s best seller. Without a doubt we would return just for the Paella it was that good.
To conclude our dining experience at Bravo we enjoy a delicious selection of warm Churros con Chocolate Especiado, fried pastry dough with cinnamon sugar and spiced chocolate sauce.
We absolutely loved our dining experience at Bravo, the only question we were left asking ourselves is how had we not visited before? For an authentic Spanish dining experience look no further than Bravo.
