Tapas in Malaga – ‘Plaza 16 – bar & restaurant’

Today we enjoyed a meal at the Plaza
16 tapas bar and restaurant in Malaga capital.

It has had very mixed reviews, with
Spaniards being extremely overtly critical of it. The restaurant is run by Argentineans,
a nationality often disliked here in Spain, particularly in Andalucía.  In our experience,
the bar was excellent.

The staff was friendly, the services
swift and the food very tasty.  We
enjoyed tapas of curry meatballs with rice, chorizo croquettes and tapas of
smoked salmon salad. We also shared a mini hamburger, tasty with caramelised
onions in a ciabatta roll. The restaurant has a strong focus on meat, so I look
forward to returning to try the grill.

The decor is camp/kitsch and theatrical – and for christmas there is a Agava flower, painted and decorated – very cool.

I also got to try a new Ribera del
Duero – Convento de Orejo – really good.

So I suggest you give it a try and
make up yoru own mind.

    Yes, I like it too, very much. Excellent location and frequent hide out spot for wedding guest before they have to move on to the dinner after the ceremony in the neighbouring church. I did not find it camp though….rather pleasant wihite and silver interiour with some chandeliers, albeit modest.
