My husband and I celebrated our anniversary there last night with our 2 little girls. My youngest had the Australian Lamb chops and she loved❤ it so much, leaving only 1 piece left for her sister, me and husband to taste. 😍 My 2nd daughter had the Beef Fillet and she also loved it! She said the mashed potato with manchengo is perfect! My husband had the 12oz Grilled Hereford Ribeye. 😍😍😍 Yummm He ate it ALL!! LOL I was debating on the Grilled Rainbow Trout & Jumbo Shrimp or the Seared Red Gulf Snapper and ended up with the Trout! DELISH!!! 😋😍😋 The staff was great and the food was remarkablel!!
Thank you for the wonderful experience!!!
Very nice place, food was amazing
Second time client. Food is typical Spain. Nice bistro atmosphere. Parking can be a problem. Staff is all friendly efficient and helpful
Exquisite food. Delicate with very sophisticated flavors.

Then onto the special appetizer of Piccadillo peppers stuffed with Serrano in a pimiento sauce Amazing
The. As an entire we shared the house Paella
Shared a great Spanish Rioja and life is good!!!
Definitely going back to this one !!!
Superior quality of food, cooking techniques, ambiance, service, but noisy.
Anthony took great care of us. Food was amazing (shrimp and scallops with risotto, and filet with onion rings), cooked to perfection with wonderful mixtures of flavors and textures for the palate. A wonderful culinary experience!
This is a wonderful, cozy restaurant in the heart of Bellaire! We love it, the food and wine are excellent!
We had dinner at Costa Brava Halloween night. There were very few diners so it was very quiet. The menu and wine list include a lot of interesting choices focussing on Spanish food. Our salads were very good and my wife's suckling pig entree was excellent. I had the octopus. The octopus was tender and delicious but, in my opinion somewhat drowned in olive oil. However we had a very enjoyable dinner and look forward to returning.
Food was delicious as always!
Costa Bravo Bistro is always spot on for a fabulous lunch or dinner experience. The staff is professional, courteous and willing to ensure a wonderful experience.
Very good food, especially good service — prompt, pleasant, professional, helpful, fun — in a nice comfortable atmosphere. An excellent experience, one we definitely look forward to repeating!
One of the best restaurants in Houston
I always enjoy the food and service. The server accidentally added an appetizer that we didn’t have to our bill and we paid without checking. I called when I got home and they immediately took it off of our credit card.
Our first time was great, would absolutely go back. Nice wine, interesting food options. Not expected at all.
Very accodating service-fabulous Ribeye and Scallops
Excellent food, excellent service, excellent everything. Easy, free parking. The trout dish was superb, the jamon delicious. We will be back.
Wonderful entrees from Spain and France. Service extraordinaire. A true gem. Both owners meet and greet the patrons.
My wife and I went on our monthly date, and tried this place for the first time. Sometimes we like share the food we order, from our appetizers to the main course. We were surprised that at this place you cannot share your main dish with your date. So each of us had to order, even if we were not that hungry. We order the paella, and the flavor was not authentic, like you usually expect from a Spanish restaurant.The sangria was good, but the food was not the best.The prices are high, and the atmosphere is okay. We probably will not go back.
A Houston favorite, every time. A great place to catch up with friends.
Costa Brava has been our ‘go to’ restaurant in Bellaire ever since they opened a few years ago.
The location is perfect, the food is excellent and the service is absolutely superb, all while the prices are reasonable.
We love the salpicon de marisco (seafood salad - not exactly certain I spelled it correctly) as appetizer, greatly enjoy their paella or their mussels, love to taste the red snapper and the steak.
And then, the specials are usually things that you can’t find any place else in town. The suckling pig - stuffed peppers and the lamb are delicious.
Have to mention that the owners are extremely nice and always present making sure everyone is having a very enjoyable experience.
We very highly recommend it.
Incredible meal with authentic ingredients and meticulous preparation. Great wine list. Excellent service. Highly recommend.
Overall Costa Bravais one of the best and most aprasivel bistros in town/ Highly recomended
We went here for a couples dinner. Great food and ambiance. Portion size was a bit on the small side.
We have been there three times and the food and the service has been consistently very good
All was up to usual standards of excellance in food and service.
We also love to be at CB. The specials are always interesting and hard to resist.
As always, the food, service and overall experience was first class. We always enjoy spending our special occasion dining at this quaint neighborhood restaurant.
One of my family's favorite restaurant. Their lamb is to die for and I could bathe in their gazpacho.
Service is always wonderful and the food is even better.
The lamb chops are perfect and the apple tart with homemade ice cream melts in your mouth. Great romantic atmosphere- great for dates.
We sat at the first table, we felt like those waiting to be seated were hovering over us...I felt someone on my back....
Although the food was good , we were VERY uncomfortable with the pressure of those waiting....
One of our favorites
One of the best in Houston
Great food and service. Most things on the menu are unusual and delicious!
Spouse and I just celebrated our 20th year anniversary with our favorite restaurant in Houston. No doubt in our mind where to go Costa Brava has never let us down. Surprisingly intimate, international flavor, you feel like you are taken to Europe and back during the course of your meal. Staff/owner always makes sure your meal is worth any drive with the attention you get. Worth every penny!
The best parts of the meal were the paella - and the company!
excellent food, great service overall, occasionally slightly slow
multiple options for all tastes
will return - already have a few times
First time dining there- food was wonderful! Had the lamb chops- delicious. My brother-in- law had steak- said it was one of the best he’d eaten. Small restaurant with limited seating, so I recommend reservations. Save room for desert- Chocolate- Orange Pots de Creme was wonderful! Can’ t wait to go back.
Lovely restaurant in Bellaire. We had not been in several months as we find the menu doesn't change and the food is pretty heavy. Food is good, well prepared, but heavy with sauces and very few vegetable options. Our waiter was very nice and accommodating. I think many people would be very pleased with Costa Brava, but if you would like lighter and healthier options, this is not the place for you. Offering vegetable sides would be an easy step toward making the meals more appealing to those diners who would like a healthy meal.
Very nice ambience and wonderful food! They made us feel special for our weddin anniversary:)
We go to Costa Brava every year for my birthday. My husband and my two grown children, so it is the four of,us. My husband, daughter and I were satisfied with our dinners. However, my son did not like his dinner at all. Overall, the food is very good and reminds me of the Spanish food I ate when I lived in Spain.
