We don’t bother ordering dessert as the whole experience has been a disappointment and we just want to leave.
We won’t be dining there again.
What happened to “customer is king”?
Was also pleasantly surprised to see the new renovations and the amazing wine selection. Just blown away by the new look. The only place I’ve ever seen that has as good a selection of Alana Estate wines as the actual vineyard tasting room itself!
The worst thing about Cafe Bravo is that it’s not in Wellington!!!!!
Already looking forward to going back
Situated in Red Square.

Since I had such a great experience we are heading there again tonight for dinner. I would happily recommend.
Bravos always give a very warm welcome and the regular staff are professionally trained to a high level by the Hosts Supreme, Nancy and Jack.
Ambience, food, wine list and service are always important to me and for me Bravos Red Square are second to none in Tauranga.

My phone booking was with a particularly obliging woman; the service was prompt and friendly without being intrusive and the food was fantastic: delicious pork belly and very highly commended medium rare steak for my companion. The meals were a generous size and the wine/beer selection was very good.
Different strokes from different folks, but our experience at Bravo was faultless and I’d recommend it unreservedly. ($97 for two mains, 1 dessert, 2 glasses of wine, 1 beer).
She was making coffee’s and serving customers which seemed odd to me.
Very poor service
However…upon arrival we were greeted by a very cold and officious maitre d who seemed to be annoyed with a big group. We were told our tables would be seated in an L-shape TOGETHER and this was not the case. We were separated, which for a 50th birthday was not ideal. We were the only people inside the restaurant, so this seemed a little odd that we couldn’t push them together.
The restaurant ‘claims’ to be BYO, however, a limit to the number of bottles per table was a bit ridiculous. Between 18 people we were only ALLOWED 5 bottles maximum. We would have thought a BYO restaurant would allow 1 bottle per person, especially when they are prepared to pay $6 corkage per bottle.
Not one of the 18 people that dined there on Friday night will ever go back to this restaurant again!!
Had Pork medallion on kumera mash with sauce, couldn’t see any sauce as the plate full of mash had soaked it up. Pork was hard to cut with knife. Hubby had chicken with rosti, again it was a plate full of mash with no sauce – very dry. Pretty boring menu also, type of meal one would expect at bistro.
I have to say Bravo have stepped up and improved their service, presentation and quality to 98% of the time very good.
Dined here for dinner earlier this year (can’t remember when) and spotted a mistake in the spelling of the menu. When raised with staff, this matter was promptly dealt with by apologising, then contacting the owner, who then authorised a 50% discount on the dish and an apology. Couldn’t ask for better !
When I returned for lunch some months later, the same waitress remembered me, and thanked me for returning and trying their establishment again.
Way to covert me Bravo
