Costa del Sol Restaurant Review: With its cool, sedate color scheme providing a nice contrast to the piquancy of many of its dishes, Costa del Sol remains a destination for España-philes. Its reputation stems from the kitchen's winning ways with Galician-inspired seafood and tapas---of which the latter are especially good: be sure to try piquillo peppers stuffed with a salad of shrimp, chicken and saffron aïoli as well as the chorizo in a sticky Rioja reduction. If you do opt for a main course, enlist a partner and get the paella de la casa, a best-of-all-worlds combination of seafood, chicken, chorizo and vegetables touched with saffron. Equally seasoned are servers who welcome everyone into their fold, lavishing familial attention on their customers inside and out on the spacious patio. Take advantage of Tapas Tuesdays, happy hour with small plates, and the special fixed-price menu that changes regularly.
