After much discussion and checking of TripAdvisor reviews (and having spent most of the day on the beach right in front of the place) we decided on Bella Costa. Personally, I always prefer to eat away from the sea front as I've had so many bad experiences of such places but I went with the flow. We just wanted a... More

I last reviewed this restaurant in May when the food was excellent but the service painfully slow....well I've been back twice and I'm delighted to report that the service is vastly improved with what appears to be a new team of charming and efficient staff. We have tried most of the restaurants in Llafranc including the Michelin starred Casamar and... More

After trying the top 3 rated restaurants in Llafranc which were all OK, we went to the Bella Costa on our last night and had the best meal we had on holiday. We both had prawns for a starter and Fillet of Veal for main course and it was very good. The bottle of red wine was the best we'd... More

If you are over 80 you might want to give this place a miss because you may not live long enough to receive your meal! This restaurant is so frustrating because the food is excellent and the value outstanding but the wait..........my advice is to order a bottle of cava or wine immediately ( which means if you are lucky...

We ate here on the first night of our holiday. We walked passed and thought it looked welcoming. We were wrong. It took them ages for us to bring us menus and take our drinks orders. When I asked to try the wine before he poured it. The waiter laughed and then asked sarcastically if it was ok. My job... More

Tasty food and good prices; the service could have been more friendly, but it was fine. The fried fish was fresh and delicious -- not to be missed! One of the top three dining spots on the main street for sure!

Good viewing spot overlooking the beach. Reasonable prices for dining on the promenade. The salads, pastas and Spanish potato frittata were all great. The marinera sauce on the mussels was very tasty but the mussels were slightly overcooked and small. However, I noticed that other restaurants were also serving the same size so perhaps they were all that was available.... More
