Welcome to "La Plaza" restaurant and tapas bar

the very center of Malaga life

Taking pride of place in Plaza de la Merced, the very center of Malaga life, a few doors from the birth place of Pablo Picasso, La Plaza Restaurant and Bar offers an eclectic mix of modern, elegant, International Cuisine.

Enjoy tapas with a drink in the bar or dine in the relaxed atmosphere of our cozy restaurant. Alfresco dining is also available on our terrace on Plaza De La Merced with a view of the square and the Cathedral.

We aim to fuel your passion for food

From Roasted Marinated Chicken Breast with potato puree, wild mushrooms, asparagus and a sundried tomato butter to a simple Caesar Salad with herb croutons, white anchovies and green beans, the menu offers a cross section of European, Asian Fusion and Middle Eastern foods with colorful rich flavors.

We offer a wide variety of vegetarian dishes from a rich Pumpkin Risotto with nutmeg and crispy sage butter or a very agreeable Veggie Shepherd's Pie of lentils, to sweet potato and cheese gratin served with green beans.

Pudding lovers will find a slice of heaven in our Chocolate Truffle Cake with caramelized oranges and yoghurt ice cream or an Amaretto Crème brûlée with warm poached winter fruits, if you can't decide which to have try two.

Extensive Menu

We are open from 10am and offer breakfast options for early risers in addition to a carefully chosen selection of tapas including many vegetarian dishes. If you are looking for something more substantial our menu contains a wide variety of reasonably priced starters, mains and desserts catering for all tastes.

The full menu and tapas menu are served all day with the exception of breakfast items which stop at midday.
