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 has been a destination for España-philes for three decades. 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 crab salad as well as the chorizo in a sticky Rioja red wine reduction. If you do opt for a main course, enlist a companion or two and get the paella of the month or 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, where you can share a pitcher of sangría in the sun. Try traditional flan for dessert if you can resist the chocolate mousse.
