“Not tasty”
Review of La Plaza Tapas Bar - CLOSED

La Plaza Tapas Bar
Price range: US$5 - US$20
Description: Tapas are the result of hundreds of years of Spanish culinary history and evolution. The best recipes for simple, tasty and healthy food have become a standard and a way of life for Spaniards.Few other countries enjoy their food as much as Spaniards do. Spain’s philosophy of food is to get the most possible flavor out of raw ingredients, using very few sauces and condiments. Vegetables are grilled or baked, to enhance their flavor, and then roused with fresh olive oil to complete the experience. Prawns are simply grilled with salt or quickly cooked in garlic and olive oil. Clams are cooked in white wine or just grilled and covered with fresh oil, garlic and parsley.

We had tapas and beside the shimps with garlic, they were not tasty. Fried chirizo was dull, cheese and fish croquette were just ok, vegerables a la plancha very greasy but nothing special. Overall we were disappointed. The worse came later, when the food proved hard to digest.

I love tapas love spanish food so from the reviews and because its not that far from where we are staying we thought it would be good but we got cheese croquettes which had no real flavour they really needed seasoning...spanish meatballs which were boiled without being seared so just balls of water...the chorizo potato and egg dish well ive never had chorizo like that before(not in a good way) simple dishes just not done properly and it was quite expensive.wouldnt recommend it

This is a boutique restaurant that makes you think you are in Spain. It is owned by real Spanish people and they cook very traditional dishes like in Spain. I love the authenticity of their cuisine and the modest but detailed decoration inside. Their paella takes a long time to cook, but definitely worth the wait.

My favorite dishes: Salmorejo and broken eggs with jamón. The shrimps with garlic, meatballs, croquetas de pescado o queso are also great.

Best jamón serrano, cheese and chorizo you can find in the whole city. If you want a mediterranean salad, la Plaza is the best choice, and they are huge - try the mixed salad.

Friendly staff and manager. The owner is very knowledgeable about Spanish food..and everything else

Thanks to La Plaza I have less reasons to come back to my country!

I eat here regularly (2-3 times a week)… My favorite meal is Salmorejo & albondigas, but there are other delicious options like Huevos rotos, Gambas al ajillo o Ensalada mixta. They also have amazing lomo and chorizo (cured ham and sausages) and cured cheese.

Very recommendable!
