Food was quite good. Prices are very high and they do not offer lunchtime menu formulas. Waiter got unfriendly when we asked for tap water (which is better than bottled in Zurich) and especially after we said no aperitif. He even forgot to bring the...More

We went there on Saturday evening, with reservation. The restaurant was full. It was the first time for us ... the ambience is cozy, and the food is good. It is also expensive as the portions are not so big. So expect good food and...More

nice & simple atmosphere with excellent/helpful service & great food. we tried some gambas (prawns) and sepia (cuttlefish) as a starter and then had an excellent steak (solomillo; US beef) as a main dish. It wasn't so crowded during the week, but I assume, reservations...More

This old fashioned restaurant - with no music and an uninspiring decor - will knock your socks off with delicious fare, especially the fish - and keep room for seconds !! A great address in a mostly boring neighbourhood - go there!

If I want to celebrate a special occasion I will always choose Costa Brava. The fish is just exceptional. The waiters are attentive and the Chef is friendly - he greets the guests personally.

We had dinner recently at this restaurant. The place is rather small but somehow cozy. Quality is far too low for such prizes. To begin with, the tapas are already cooked and once you order they just warm them up, so they won't be freshly...More
