Just a short block from Plaza de la Constitucion and the food goes from good to great. We looked at a number of sidewalk cafes but typically the seafood was fried. The guys at Plaza de Chinitas assured us we could enjoy fresh grilled seafood. Just inside the door was a display of fresh fish, octopus, shellfish etc on ice. Our "singing" waiter Antonio suggested the snapper as the fish of the day and maybe some grilled octopus as a starter. Well the octopus was served on a bed of finely sliced potatoes and may have been some of the best octopus we have eaten anywhere, perfectly grilled perfectly seasoned and very tender. My wife and I really enjoyed them but then out comes a whole snapper served with sliced potatoes cooked with peppers, onions and perfectly seasoned plus a salad. We both ended up with a huge plate of the most delicious food. The fish like the octopus was perfectly grilled and wonderfully seasoned. We both agreed Plaza de Chinitas was a very lucky place to find. The chef separated the fresh fish from the bone in front of us. This is one of the few times I also ate the skin as it was crispy and well flavored. Our whole experience was great. Antonio sang a few versus, they gave us a free desert sampler and made sure we had anything we wanted. We did not want to add any seasoning, sauce or anything to change the flavor of this excellent piece of fish. We hope to return before we leave Malaga. Do yourself a favor and stop by for great grilled seafood.
