This is a restaurant you can count on. It has a gated parking area under bright lights, a real plus in the city. Unlike many of today's restaurants, you can actually have a conversation. It offers consistently fine service with a very professional wait staff. Francisco was especially friendly and helpful in accommodating a food intolerance. Good martinis, Spanish beer... More

In the southernmost part of Hartford sits the Costa del Sol, a Spanish restaurant deservedly beloved by locals. It has been around for more than a quarter of century, and the menu hasn’t undergone dramatic changes. There are two soups that have been offered since it opened: a Caldo Gallego with white beans and ham, and a Sopa de Pescado,... More

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

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
