Very relaxed casual open seafood restaurant. Nice atmosphere and good food. Strange thing was that waiters cannot add tip to the credit card so you have to leave that in cash.

Food was delicious and well served. The service good enough and the price fair. The best part was the environment, decorated with taste and fresh in the summer.

The restaurant was busy, so I ended up at the bar; the staff were friendly and it was a vibrant place to sit and enjoy dinner. The stir fried quinoa was very good.

Stayed at Belmont hotel and upon arrival we went for lunch at La Plazita. It was marvellous. The waiter was excited about presenting the menu and the wines. We had the best Chardonnay with our food. Had scallops and quinoa octopus for starters. For entrees the barrel cooked Chicken and the Seafood rice dish amazed us and we couldn't be... More

I did a review for Arugula but looking at the addresses again i realize that this is meant for Plazita. "Lovely spot at night but very crowded at 9:30 with a high noise volume. The food was good as was the wait staff.A few months ago I went with a friend for lunch which was also good food but slower... More

La Plazita is a great option if you want a variety of different menu options. There’s Peruvian food as well as more diverse options (salads, flat bread pizzas, sandwiches, etc.). We particularly enjoyed the flat bread pizzas, which are probably big enough to share if you’re not too hungry. It’s nice sitting in the indoor/outdoor space and there are heaters... More

Went to this restaurant this evening after spotting it earlier this afternoon. Should have booked, but they managed to find a table for us after a short wait at the bar. Great choice - we chose from 3 sections of the attractive menu and all three of us were delighted with the delicious and perfectly cooked food. The service was... More

The menu might be the most adventurous, but I can only say that we had an great night at La Plazita with superb food and beverages. Specially the Pulpo with chimchurri and Quinoa was outstanding. Actually it was one of the best dishes I've had for a really long time!

I can't help the feeling that staff doesn't actually want to be there. The food isn't bad but nothing special, also it's outside and therefore pretty cold. Especially if they don't light the heaters (they do have them). Had to order or drinks twice. If they would make an effort this place could be great... I just moved into the... More
