Disappointing meal compared to other restaurants nearby .Very busy and one of our dishes (veal) rather overcooked and tough .Would not recommend.

Belly Costa is a really nice restaurant on the front at Llafranc. Staff are very friendly and menu quite comprehensive. On this visit I had sea bream and salad which was absolutely delicious. Having eaten in other higher listed restaurants in Llafranc earlier in the week this was one of the best plates of food I had had. Well worth... More

I can't believe this restaurant isn't more highly rated. The service is excellent, the menu available in English and they speak good English (to compensate for my very bad Spanish). The food comes out exactly as described which is pleasantly surprising! And it is delicious. Fabulous beachfront location with great shade and a stunning view. Highly recommend.

Incredibly slow service, took 1 hour to be served the starter of cold vegetables. Had to ask for bread 4 times. It was the first week in October and the town was generally quiet so went against my better judgement and ordered paella. Only ate the rice because the seafood didn't look fresh, the mussels didn't taste fresh and the... More

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

We spent a relaxed lunch at Bella Costa. We found the waiting staff friendly and attentive. Started off with Bruschetta and spicy potatoes. Oldies went for the Seafood Paella which was great. The teenagers went for hamburger (nicely cooked) and a mozzerella and tomatoe Salad for our vegetarian. All voted "very good" puddings followed - Creme Catalan and Chocolate Brownie... 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
