When I was told it was a tapas bar, my heart sank. Having been taken to a very disappointing tapas bar in Benidorm many years ago, I was not looking forward to it. I was so wrong. The food was delicious. I chose Nasi Goreng,...More

Having strolled past Costas earlier we liked the look of it and the quirkiness inside was just great. The food and wine was truly excellent - try the chicken and chorizo kebabs - divine! Service was great and the only reason that we didn't rate...More

We ate here on our second night of C2C. There were 8 of us. It is family run and they appear to care deeply about their Spanish food. We felt the love from all the staff right from the girl who seated us and organised...More

Friendly colourful, jolly place. Very friendly staff. Unfortunately the food was awful I'm sorry to say. Half the menu items were unavailable. If you like sliced Spanish onions and raw garlic, it's the place for you...

Staying in Penrith for a cycling event, none of us Yorkshire Lasses (CC) had been here before so didn't know the town at all. We asked staff at the Premier Inn and they recommended Costas, we were SO glad they did. Obviously we hadn't booked,...More

They vary enormously from £6 each to £15! Be aware that the dishes on the specials are not priced! They also start at £6 but can be as highas £15. Ask the price of each before you order or you'll get a nasty surprise when... More
