tried this restaurant twice, tapas for lunch, a large variety of courses. especially the sticky fingers were very good! cesar salad could be better though.. for main course the marocco lamb sgank melted in the mouth, splendid together with local suggested ribera wine from the waiter. would definitely visit again.

Sometimes you like some different Spanish tapas or dishes, here we found them (again). For approx. 5 euro per dish you can try a variety of special delicious tapas/dishes. On plaza merced, so lots to see and listen to the street musicians...give theme some if it sounds ok..:)

My wife and I spotted this on our way to the Alcazaba and being hungry, decided to sit down for a bite. Being in Spain my wife opted to try to paella; it was not very good. Also being in Spain meant sampling the sangria; it was excellent. We decided to get the nachos appetizer; it was a delightful surprise.... More

Went to LaPlaza with two friends who live in Malaga. We shared some tapas and had a great time. Prices are reasonable, the food is delicious and the service was friendly and efficient. It was actually one of the best meals I had during my trip to Malaga! Highly recommend it!

My boyfriend took me here for dinner one night and it was a nice alternative to always eating tapas. As much as I liked them, I wanted a little change. We did end up ordering a couple of tapas, like the braised Moroccan lamb shank and the sticky Chinese ribs, which were DELICIOUS!! I also ordered the linguine with prawns... More

We liked this place because it did a good range of vegetarian tapas which were made on the premises. The surroundings are nice too. The waiter was friendly, efficient and informative and we got the feeling the staff really cared about their work. We would definitely eat here again.

Tapas, bar and restaurant, this excellent place is situated in Plaza de Merced, where Picasso was born. The Plaza is being rejuvenated and the northern side is all bars and restaurants. This is the jewel in the crown. We didn't dine but just called in for a late night drink. The place was buzzing and it is greatly favoured by... More
