Amazing paella!!

We stopped by this restaurant for dinner on the way from West Chester to Boston. The restaurant is relaxing atmosphere and spacious. This staff was taking good care of us. Jamison Iberico was fair. Mixed paella was surprisingly good quality. It was one of the best I have had before.

Our granddaughter studied at the Univ of Seville, Spain in her Jr. year and I visited her while there enjoying the special tapas and other restaurants recommended by Trip Advisor. Before she returns to college here we decided to try another recommended restaurant - Costa Del Sol - and found it a wonderful example of our Spanish experience here. The... More

Costa del Sol serves wonderful paella - that's the reason many people, including my husband and me, go there. But every dish we've tried in our 3-4 visits has been excellent, from appetizers to desserts. The ambience is great too, starting with the spacious area that greets you just inside the door. Service is friendly and efficient, but never hurried.

I've been eating paella at Costa del Sol for many years and they never fail to delight me with the savory dish. I spent New Year's Eve with 9 friends and each person was blown away with the food. Kudos to the chef and staff.

If you're looking for authentic paella then this is the place. Go with friends because the paella is enough for 4. There are a few varieties of paella but I found the shellfish and chicken the best. Lots of flavor.

Costa del Sol offers a variety of Spanish appetizers and main courses but our favorites are the seafood paellas, accompanied by sangria and the arroz leche dessert. The food is also available for takeout and is great for a party entre.

The paella is amazing here. That's definitely the word on the street, it lives up to expectations. Also, the rice pudding for dessert is fantastic too. Great local spot!

I went with my husband to Costa del Sol specifically to eat paella last week. We ordered a "paella marinera" with lobster for two.I don't have enough words in my vocabulary to describe how delicious and perfectly cooked it was. We go to this restaurant several times a year (we'd go more often if it wasn't so far from where... More

I was there to have dinner. Everything was awesome: service, food, atmosphere, etc. Since I am spanish I can say that some dishes were not 100% cooked. Anyway I must say it is a very good restaurant. They offer excellent wine!!
