Costa Brava Bistro Ratings and Reviews
As a long time customer of CB, I have always loved the ambiance and the service. They remember your preferences, so they knew where I like to sit and which waiter, and which wines I prefer. They had this all ready for me on my arrival. NOW THAT"S SERVICE. And when the owners and staff have a personal relationship with you- that's SPECIAL.
Coasta Bravo is a warm , friendly, intimate place with delicious food and caring, attentive service. The paella is my favorite, but everything on the menu that I have tried has been top rate and I also especially like their fish and seafood. The Apple Tarte with homemade ice cream is my desert favorite. The wine list is not extensive but perfectly adequate. This one of my favorite restaurants in Houston.
Celebrating granddaughters graduation with Masters @ TX A&M. First visit to Costa Bravo. Delicious food from appetizer to dessert. Lovely, cozy decor. Excellent waiter (Anson ?) who made perfect wine & food recommendations. Delightful manager/owner who visited with us three times. All was top notch. A must-try Bellaire neighborhood cafe. Worth the 30 min drive from Sugar Land.
Superb as usual. Every visit includes interesting and well executed entrees and salads (we had paella and a sublime sea bass dish, as well as two salads). We splurged on desserts--chocolate pot de creme and a chocolate bread pudding--which were delicious and not cloyingingly sweet. The wine list always has interesting and reasonable options, and service is professional, discreet and prompt. A real winner!
The restaurant claims to be a mix of French and Spanish food and it's neither. The Galician Octopus was poorly prepared (over cooked) and lacked grain sea salt. The french onion soup had little to no cheese. The fish was well cooked but garnishments were average. I ordered a side risotto and it was undercooked. No refills on anything (even though cost for soda is $4). No real Spanish food on the menu except for 4 items. Limited wine selections. My wife and I have been to authentic Spanish restaurants in the costa brava (north of Spain) and had high expectations which were not met. Will not return
My second time visiting Costa Bravo Bistro and it does not disappoint! Lovely place and wonderful food. Not may vegetarian options but if you are a meat or fish lover there is a wonderful menu and everything is delicious with slightly different takes on soups like French onion or Gazpacho. A great place to go for a quiet dinner to catch up with a friend or date!
We went a little later and so the crowd was perhaps a bit quieter than someone else's experience (mostly older folks from the neighborhood). Our food was good, as was the wine. Overall we enjoyed it but not sure we're going to rush to return either. Worth a stop though.
