A bit off the beaten path with plenty of parking in front. We were seated at a window seat in a room with 4-5 tables.There's plenty of room for large parties as well. It was noisy, due to the small room. The waiter was nice, but seemed distracted. We ordered salmon, octopus with potato, a soup, a bruschetta, a cheese/fruit plate and chocolate moose for desert. The Octopus was fabulous, with a paprika topping. Very tender and tasty... the soup was good as well. The salmon was enjoyed as was the other dishes we ordered. It was an interesting experience.Typically of Spain, the bill took a while to get.

Unprerpossessing aspect in a so so neighborhood in a so so town, but really good. T typical Spanish offerings;menu small but carefully curated.

Had a fine squid appetizer - not breaded and fried, but sautéed, oil and garlic. Cooked just right, not too chewy. Lunch portion of chicken legs in a brown sauce, hearty size, tasty.

Table service attentive and quick

Usually a very good place. Had dinner with friends there a few weeks ago, While the service was the usual top rate that we're used to. The meal seemed a little flat we were had eaten here earlier this year and everything was fantastic, this time not so much. It was restaurant week in Hartford and there was a discounted menu for the even. We had a house special, the Paella, for which the restaurant is known. It was rather bland, the rice was without the crustiness a good paella should have. Table mates selections seemed good particularly the Pork Osso Bucco. Deserts were simple but elegant,

Costa Del Sol is a great restaurant for those looking for excellent Spanish cuisine in a warm, welcoming atmosphere. We had Paella de la casa (yellow rice, chicken, chorizo, clams, mussels, shrimp - delicious) and flan for dessert.
