The food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. The restaurant was absolutely full local people enjoying a family lunch obviously very popular locally. The staff we very attentive and helpful. We all have fish dishes which were fabulous. Definitely worth a visit.

Fabulous restaurant on lovely setting which great food. This is our favourite restaurant as salads and starters are a little different. A little more expensive but well worth it. At the very edge of Benajarafe on your way to Torre this restaurant is a must to visit. Great for a lazy late lunch and then dander back via the beach.

One of the best places to eat in Benejarafe. Excellent location on the beach, food is always fresh and tasty and good value, the prawns and avocado and aubergine & honey are lovely and big enough to share. Recommend booking for Sunday lunch as always busy with Local families which give a great atmosphere. Have been several times and always... More

I used to think La Plata was a cut above all the other nearby restaurants, but not any more. The disappointing house salad was mostly lettuce with sliced half moon tomatoes, shredded carrots from a jar and a tablespoon of tuna. The prawn and avocado dish was just a few prawns with half a sliced avocado, again with lots of... More

Lunch on a Sunday becomes a long break. Arrived before 2 and left after 5. Very busy restaurant with staff running around the gardens trying to pacify everyone. The BBQ style food was tasty and some of the fish was very good. Would like to try on a weekday to see if service better but during the weekend it would... More

Even though the weather didn't accompany, it is a nice place to seat outside and have a nice seafood based lunch with a nice view of the beach.
