This place looks like a tourist trap, but we were served an excellent mediterranean salad and vegetarian pizza. Service was fast and friendly, and the outdoor plaza ambiance was very pleasant.

Yesterday visit La plaza and highly recommended. Superb tapas for late lunch. Perfect service and best of all so low price so every one can join. Not do it in middle of the heart of Málaga.

While there were many vegetarian options, I went for the beef and every bite was terrific. I ordered a small side salad which was bigger than... More

The staff here are superb - really friendly and so efficient -... More

We visited "LA PLAZA 'ALCAZABILLA' at Calle Alcazabilla, opposite Cinema Albeniz" twice during our four day stay in Malaga. Firstly for brunch, which was cooked to perfection. Secondly for Tapas, which was superb. The food was very fresh, tasty and very well presented. The staff were friendly and helped us to master our Spanish. Would visit here again without hesitation...

Plus it has a lovely view of Alcazaba so a bit of culture to accompany your meal! They modified my... More
