EL BRAVO, DENIA 966425376
El Bravo is one of a number of chic glass and chrome restaurants to be found in the Marina area of Denia harbour. Amongst its neighbours are other favourites of ours such as Denia Republic and Isla de Tortuga. Interestingly the chef and all of the waiters are from Bulgaria although the cuisine is mainstream.
The menu del día costs €18.95 for three courses, not including drinks. Of the starters sampled undoubtedly the sautéed seafood was the winner by a mile, beautifully presented and delicious too. The prawn cocktail in comparison, was a poor second, although it was perfectly acceptable.
We enjoyed a Rueda Verdejo Viura blend called Florecilla (€13.20) with the starters and moved on to a Rioja, also priced at €13.20, called Señorio de Uñuela for the main course and both were very pleasant.
All of our party went for meat for their main course; duck breast with a delicious red fruits sauce, medallions of beef with vegetables and the star of meal, Chuletons of beef. These were either T Bones or massive sirloins of Galician beef to be shared between two. Wonderful!
Desserts were a choice of Brownie with ice cream or Profiteroles, both served with a rich chocolate sauce.
