I'm not a huge seafood person, but the mussels and tuna were top notch! Everything was perfectly cooked and the seasoning they used was fantastic! The house wine was also very good. The service was nice as well.

Nice restaurant with friendly and quick service. You're next to the sea, so make it count. Go for the fish specials that sound unusual, definitely worth it.

The restaurant is pricier but the paella is to die for. It was really delicious. The staff was really friendly as well.

Great location for people watching. Had a few cava's here, but I don't think there was food being served as we were there just at the end of the season. Nice spot overall. Will try the food the next time we are over.

This site has had restaurants on it for 20 years or so and up until now, none have survived. It must say something for La Placeta that it is still here after 6 or 7 years and still going strong delivering good food and great service. The Bar Habana is just opposite and it's nice to have dinner serenaded by... More
