Great tapas and drinks, a bit more expensive than the other restaurants on the square, but the quality of the food and drinks is worth it!

Had to go back for a second visit. The staff were wonderful and friendly. Set in a lovely square,La plaza is perfect for some winter sun. Great food at reasonable prices. Looking forward to going back one day. Thanks Fatima, Alberto and the nice lady...More

We stopped for breakfast and had to ask 3 times for the bill. On returning for lunch we gave up waiting to be served and went to Citron restaurant on the same square where we received excellent food and service!

Nice spot to have a small lunch on a sunny day in winter. Musicians playing all through our lunch. Great tapas.

Sat on the terrace and really enjoyed the food. Tapas was wonderful, good portions so be careful about over ordering! Service is relaxed so don’t be in a hurry to go anywhere. Relax and enjoy!

Lovely selection of tapas, the lightly curried fish is particularly good. Terriyaki beef was great as was the Baba Ganoush. Price of the wines were pretty reasonable too.

Good food and even better staff made us come back twice in 2 days. Ask for Siblle she is great. A must try in Malaga.
