We were staying in Plaza de la Merced and decided to stay close by for breakfast. We only wanted something simple and visited La Plaza this morning. We ordered a coffee, orange juice and some toast with tomato and oil - one of our favourite breakfasts! It was not too busy when we were there, perhaps about half full but... More

We hadn't really expected much from this seemingly small bar, and only realised it had been rated highly by other travellers after we'd eaten there. The food was lovely...chicken skewers, goats cheese, beef and hummus. The tapas was a little more expensive than other places but were very nice and good size portions for 2 people.

Went here for a lunch while on a break in Malaga.

Staff were very friendly and attentive, although we did see the English owner/manager shouting at one of his... More

Recommended to us as were Lechuga and Citron (also on the square). The number of places to eat can be a bit overwhelming but La Plaza certainly seems to be at the top end. We had teriyaki beef skewers, black pudding with goats cheese, falafel and prawns - each better than the next. Generous glasses of cava good value at... More

We ate at this great restaurant recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. We started with 4 tapas from their nice list of about 20. Then it was on to yummy entre's. We had a nice local Ronda red wine, 2 deserts and their gratis Local Baileys type cream sherry. Service was very good too. The plaza Merced is a fun hopping... More

We went to Malaga city for the day with friends and happened upon La Plaza. We were not sure what we wanted to want, you know what it's like, one fancied tapas, once fancied pizza etc etc but decided to take a seat, grab a drink a look at the menu. As you do on holiday, our friend got up... More

food this place is very nice. Been there couple of years ago and the quality is still very high. Nice location. Only downside is that it took one hour to serve the food. The waiter offered a free drink after, so all in all ok.

I have been a few times here, beautiful food and good service. Have not been disappointed on any occasion I've been here. Lovely atmosphere, chilled and laid back. One of my favourite places.
