Great food and one of the best in Canoa Quebrada

Its a must to eat here if you are visiting CQ. The food is fantastic and at a good price. It's in the heart of the pedestrian high street and has a great atmosphere. Service is very good.

The restaurant promotes its "paella", a brown mash with langostas fried to death and shrimps that appeared to be from the freezer (in that region of Brazil!!!). No mussels, but greasy sausages instead. Didn't taste like Paella, didn't look like Paella. Our entrées, "fish" soup and Gaspacho tasted almost the same - one could eat both after using lots if...

We went there on our first night in Canoa Quebrada, it was just amazing. Ordered a Seafood pasta, which was very well seasoned and a lot of prawns, squid and lobster. For our second and last dinner in Canoa Quebrada we didn't want to take the risk to disappoint, we went there again and was wonderful once more! We ordered... More

The restaurant is pleasant although the service is a bit on the slow side. We had to wait for a table. We had been told that the paella selection was good. The one we ordered was not visually very exciting but the flavour was good. I have eaten better. The price was quite reasonable.

I've been to Costa Brava some times and I must confess the food got me surprised. The food was tasty in all times I had dinner there, such as: paella, supreme fish in garlic, rosemary, and baked potatoes, brownie for dessert. The service, everything! The owner really know how to continue his hard work on it! Congratulations. The restaurant is... More

A lovely restaurant that serves great food. Very friendly, helpful staff. I had steak which was cooked to perfection & my husband had the prawns which were also excellent. Certainly worth a visit.

What can you expect from a Spanish Restaurant located in the middle of a small village near the sea? Believe, I was quite surprised when I decided to give them a chance after a long day driving to there. We ordered a Costa Brava Paella for 3 and certainly it served 4 party. Ok, it took 30 minutes to be... More

The food and service were excellent. The atmosphere is great. It is worth trying. The cost benefit equation is perfect.

Well, after reading some reviews, we didn't expect much from the restaurant. To be very honest, we witnessed an arguement between a waitress and a customer the night before. But we decided to give it a go and try the food at Costa Brava. Well, for starters, the staff were really nice to us. Very polite, lots of smiles. We... More
