The Stark Restaurants Group has build over the years a small empire of restaurants in the Healdsburg area with perhaps Willi’s Wine Bar and Willi’s Seafood the most well established ones. Most of their restaurants tend to have a small plates approach and so it wasn’t very surprising that they also started a more “classical” Spanish tapas place in Healdsburg - Bravas Bar de Tapas.
As with some of their other restaurants Bravas might not be the most unique and creative place but it executes on a high level. And in today’s world on an actual reasonable price level with surprisingly large portions. Overall a very nice option in Healdsburg.
