We dropped in en route to Nerja and it was just warm enough to sit outside. We had beers while we looked at the menu, we're shown the lovely fresh fish. We chose aubergine with honey to start. Then the local octopus dish, we love octopus. A bottle of chilled house wine was excellent, a shared pud and the bill... More

Visited on a sunny Sunday lunchtime in January on our way to the airport. It was quite busy and we were asked if we had a reservation. We didn't but as there were quite a few empty tables I asked for one in the corner near the beach, but this was either ignored or he didn't hear me, as we... More

Fabulous restaurant on lovely setting which great food. This is our favourite restaurant as salads and starters are a little different. A little more expensive but well worth it. At the very edge of Benajarafe on your way to Torre this restaurant is a must to visit. Great for a lazy late lunch and then dander back via the beach.

I used to think La Plata was a cut above all the other nearby restaurants, but not any more. The disappointing house salad was mostly lettuce with sliced half moon tomatoes, shredded carrots from a jar and a tablespoon of tuna. The prawn and avocado dish was just a few prawns with half a sliced avocado, again with lots of... More
