we were directed here by the tourist office as we wanted something with music. Cafe Bravo was excellent for aperitivo and as it was so good we stayed for dinner and returned two nights later! Food was really delicious and then the music started on the outdoor stage opposite about 10pm it was good fun and plenty of people watching... More

This place is perfectly situated to enjoy the ongoing live jazz gig set up on a mini stage right opposite. Gets busy at night, get there early. Had Tuna, not bad.

I was at the Bravo Caffe to see one of my favourite band: Robert Glasper Experiment. The host was a pleasant person and at the end we even managed to get a ticket discount, which is cool.

Our hotel recommended this cafe/club. It is a jazz club and has different acts on every night starting from 10.30pm. There is a cover charge depending on the act. The food was amazing and on the night the cover charge was only 3.5 euros but check before you go.

Despite the excellent concert, the meal was unenjoyable as we got blasted out of our seat by an over-amplified bass guitar: the excellent singer had to yell to get her voice across. The prices were very high for what we got, which was really nothing special (12 euros for bread and cheese). Spectators who didn't pay the high cover charge... More

Booked a table for dinner here as a special birthday treat. Our decision to go to Bravo Caffe was based on the fact that one of my favorite jazz duos was performing that night. We were told on the phone that there would be a 20 euro cover charge for those attending the performance without dining in the restaurant. When... More

We were recommended to visit this restaurant near the end of a jazz festival that was going on in town at the time. So we were able to be entertained as well as dine on the open which made it a special occasion. In fact we went back the following night. The food was good, the staff spoke good English... More

We went there on a night with live music and had a blast! There was a hip, young crowd, mainly of uni students, and the atmosphere was very positive. Recommended for a couple of drinks in a relaxed environment.
