We were to meet family who happened to be on a stopover in Malaga with their cruiseship and we thought it would be best to meet them somewhere in the center, Plaza Merced being the ideal location. Looking for a restaurant we saw La Plaza and being well prepared to expect a tourist joint, we sat down with no expectations... More

Nice restaurant with a great view to the castle and a quiet square! We tried the plaza salad and the vegetarian plate. Very good quality, especially the house made humus and guacamole!

Brilliant seafood paella is served in this restaurant which is on the marina. We managed to secure a table, right on the harbour side, watching the world go by...its what holidays are all about.

Four of us were walking along the beautiful marina in Malaga looking at the street vendors and shops full of interesting crafts when we came to the Plaza restaurant on the main marina. It looked very clean and neat so we got in. We were very pleasantly surprised by the excellent cocktails and the good portions of delicious food. The... More

A nice place at a small square in Malaga. We had such lovely food and many delicious options on the menu that we even decided to come back a second time to taste more. Also the personell was very friendly (Alvaro served the second time, though his colleagues also did a good job!), they all spoke English very well and... More

Loved the tapas at La Plaza so much came back again a couple of days later. The goats cheese is beautiful. Ordered four plates between two of us which was plenty. Will be coming back again next time we are in Malaga.

We stopped by La Plaza last week for some refreshments while sightseeing.. Its a perfect location for watching the world go by while having a glass of wine or beer and sampling some tapas. The staff are very attentive and pleasant. Pricey enough for what we had, but that's to be expected for the central location.

3 weeks ago went with friends to La Plaza, our favorite restaurant for several years. On being handed the menu's by the as ever friendly waiters, we were disappointed to find, that apart from the tapas, burger and pasta side, the starters and main section had been greatly reduced. We were told by our waiter that Ben the chef for... More
