This restaurant has really high-quality food. I had chicken quesadilla there and it was very tasty. The service in La Plaza is very good and the atmosphere was nice too. Good choice for eating out in Málaga!

We enjoyed our lunch at the branch of La Plaza on Calle Alcazabilla so much that we decided to have dinner there the next evening. And we were just as pleased on our second visit. For lunch we shared the vegetarian tapas dish along with a very fresh and large portion of green salad. The dish included wonderful potatoes with... More

Having read the excellent reviews we thought we would try this place for a change. The menu does contain some more unusual items and we chose 2 that we had not seen elsewhere. The lentil bake was tasty and hot but the crispy morcilla parcels were disappointing. They looked good but, I suspect, had been deep fried earlier then warmed... More

We came in January and so the seafront areas were a little chilly, but this bar looking across the square is sheltered and sunny. Good service, drinks and tapas. Highly recommend this bar

Warm winter sunshine and wine & tapas for a very lazy lunch. Not as touristy as other places nearby, the Plaza Mercad seemed to be for the locals. Lots of families with young children, and lots to watch as the world went by. The food here is excellent, hand prepared and well presented. The curried ling was really good !

Been to Malaga several times and could happily eat here lunch and dinner every day. Food quality is superb and lots of choice (and lots of veggie options too!). Staff are cheerful and hard working. Can't wait to return

Went in to Malaga today with our two dogs and ate at the fantastic la plaza in Plaza Merced. While browsing the menu a waiter arrived with water and two bowls of chicken for our dogs, a wonderful gesture. We shared six tapas and were delighted with the quality and freshness. Very attentive and friendly staff and the price was... More

After some research on Trip Advisor we had decided to have lunch here. When we approached the restaurant a waiter came and was a bit intrusive (we find it very annoying when they try to read the menu to us, as if we weren’t capable of reading ourselves) and we almost turned and walked away, but we had seen several...
