We had a lovely dinner at an outside table during the week. Our waitress was excellent. The food was delicious, served exactly the way we ordered and the perfect temperature. We were always checked on by the staff and stayed for dessert. The waitress suggested 2 desserts made by the owner. We chose the flan and it was the best I ever had. Highly recommend.

NOT TO BE MISSED!!! A fantastic spot for lunch or dinner, excellent food, wine, coffee and exceptional service provided by our favorite server John Harold Ramirez! We have been to Costa Med multiple times with many friends and everyone is always pleased. On this past visit we had the Mediterranean Dip Trio, Hummus, Baba Ghanoush, and Labne, the Eiffel Tower, Grilled Vegetables, Eggplant, Zucchini, Yellow Squash, Portobello Mushrooms, Mixed Baby Green Salad, Arugula, Onions, Red Peppers, Pesto Sauce, Balsamic Glaze and French Goat Cheese, and the Pappardella Al Funghi Porchini Homemade Pasta Tossed With Imported Porcini Mushrooms, Garlic & White Truffle Oil was the most magnificent and BEST I’ve had anywhere in the world!!!!

I was impressed with how delicious the food was, especially the parmesan risotto (amazing), as well as the professionalism and friendliness of the staff. The owner was equally gracious, appreciative and friendly. This restaurant brought great food to this island paradise.

Friendly, warm, and good food. The salads are Inventive and delicious. The rest of the food is fine except they are a bit over-fond of garlic for my taste. Next time I’ll ask them to hold back.

Responded on January 3, 2020

Dear customer, we do our best to serve everyone alike, we're so sorry that you left with the impression that we neglected to serve you properly over others. Your reservation was for 8pm, a time that we were just overwhelmed, as we staffed for what historically had been a slower than normal evening, but this year we were stormed and are very sorry that service did not go as expected. Thank you for the 5 star food rating and are extremely embarrassed if we made you feel less welcome, our apologies

Too much activity
People crowding around waiting to be seated - making it uncomfortable & interferes with an enjoyable dinning
Loud kids

All around wonderful dining experience. We knew nothing about this place but the menu looked good. The restaurant was small, the atmosphere was cozy. The staff was very personable and attentive. There was a large variety of wines. The menu had plenty of variety and choices. We sat outside due to the great weather. Our food was served hot and it was absolutely fantastic! I most definitely recommend Costa Med. You'll love it!

Food is good.
Problem is it is a little expensive and service isn’t. They are too hurry to serve you and forget about the fact it is supposed to be the best place to eat in KB.
They should focus big time on the service experience or else lower prices.
If you charge like you are exclusive you must meet the standards.

I am extremely concerned on what might have happened in regards to service, can you further detail your comments via my email (info@costamedrestaurant), where I personal and confidentially will carry on this conversation and learn more on what did not carry well with you on your visit. In advance, I extend our apologies! Respectfully Antonio Braschi Owner

La comida excelente, la recepcionista “hostess” muy mal educada. Gastamos 400 dólares y nos dio la peor mesa del restaurante aún y cuando había una mejor que dijo estaba reservada especialmente.
Los platillos especiales del día nos los explicaron pero sin mencionar los precios lo cual es un abuso.

Costa Med
Responded on September 26, 2019

Sr Tato, Agradecemos su visita y nos complace mucho que les haya gustado nuestra comida. Queremos dejarle saber, qué la hostess, no le pudo complacer con la mesa, no por capricho, sino porque ya había sido re-confirmada con el cliente que la había reservado con antelación! El restaurante tiene capacidad limitada y solo 4 booth, no pudiendo complacer a todos a la misma vez. Con respecto a los especiales, sentimos mucho se sintiera abusado, por elegancia y política, que no mencionamos su precio.
