Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

The three essential tapas at this emblematic bar with just six tables (expect to eat while standing) are the fried whole anchovies (not for nothing, La Plata is also known locally as ‘Los Ppescaditos’ – the little fish), the tomato salad, onion and olive salad, and the ‘pintxo’ of ‘morcilla’ sausage. We’ll add a fourth because we love it, because it adds to the meaning of the bar’s nickname, and because, indeed, with this addition we’ll have presented the entire menu at La Plata: the gorgeous pintxo of simply the best anchovies around. They’ve been serving these same staples since 1945, making La Plata experts at what they do. Good service, good food, and good wine! Why fix it if it ain’t broke?
