We went to Costa Del Sol with some friends. Our first time there. The seafood paella we had was better than simliar dishes I had while in Spain. We had an early dinner on a Saturday and the service was good. Definitely going back

We had a reservation made. We showed up and the owner looked at me as if I was crazy when I told him I had a reservation. After some trouble he found it and grumpily he took us to a table. I think he would have preferred if he could have thrown us out. Later I asked him where the... More

Costa Del Sol on Wethersfield Avenue in Hartford CT continues to serve the best seafood paella we've had in the area. During a recent visit we shared a paella with the table that was loaded with shrimp, mussels, clams and chicken served with moist Spanish rice. We accompanied the dinner with the house sangria and followed the meal with flan... More

My wife and I tried this restaurant for the first time last weekend. We had come back from Spain a few months ago and were excited to find a nearby Spanish restaurant. We weren't disappointed. We got the paella for two and it was very good. We shared a flan for dessert, which was also very good. No appetizers for... More

Had a drink in the bar with about 50 other race fans trying to root home a Triple Crown. After the race the bar cleared out and everyone went back to their seats for dinner The menu has many... More

We dined at Costa del Sol on a Friday evening recently, and found it every bit as good as ever, and perhaps even better. Although tapas are featured Tuesdays through Thursdays, we found enough inviting ones to put together an entire Friday dinner from the choices. The soup of the day (fish chowder) deserves special mention. It was our opening... More

I am still thinking about the calamari cooked with all the garlic slices. It's been a few weeks and I keep wanting to go back just for that dish. Everything else we had was good as well, octopus, fish, linguini with seafood. I love the giant mural of Spain on the walls too, such a cute spot!

Great Spanish Mediterranean food located in a quiet neighborhood. Service is attentive without being intrusive, very personable staff. Grilled seafood with saffron rice is outstanding. Appetizers are diverse and a great start to any meal.
