I went there with a friend on a Sunday evening, and it was brilliant. Service was friendly and very efficient and the food was great. We loved the beef teriyaki and the meatballs...amazing. Totally recommended.

We were tempted by the picture of a thai salad with three brochette of beef. The salad was tasteless with green salad, squash, spanish peper and a few other things. The dressing was tasteless and the meat was not the best. There were no chilli or any other thai spices present in this dish. Find another name for it it... More

Service is a little slow but very pleasant. Nice place to sit back and relax. We sampled 2 tapas that were exceptional...black pudding, goats cheese and apple puree...so good. Would recommend as a tapas stop although mains looked good too.

We had lunch in La Plaza on the day that we arrived. It was so good that we returned the next day! Attentive, friendly service and great food! We will be back.

This restaurant is located close to the amphitheatre at the bottom of the castle. We also spotted another restaurant that appeared to have the same menu so not sure if it’s one of a chain, the look of the menu suggests it is. The area is nice and looks newly renovated. There are quite a number of bars and restaurants... More

We stopped here as it was in the middle of a busy square and looked a good place to eat. Great place to sit and watch the world go by. Food was great, nice selection to choose from. Service is a little slow and disorganised, we didn't get two of the tapas items we ordered but they did amend the... More

This is situated almost opposite El Pimpi. We visited 3 times during our stay. Its a great place on the corner to sit and watch whilst dining and drinking. The food is freshly cooked and although the tapas looks a bit pricy it is substantial compared to most other places . The Bruschetta is delicious. The staff are efficient and... More
