    Your experience sounds horrific. I live in the south of Catalonia thirty km inland. If you choose from the menu di dia, you can get three, sometimes four courses plus wine and sometimes coffee for anything from 10 to 14 euros. The food is normally edible and compared to the prices in hotel restaurants and along the coast I am very happy to eat out. About the only thing I usually avoid is steak. it is cut so thin in Spain it usually comes out like shoe leather. but I know that, don’t order so am not disappointed.

      Thanks for your comment, Dorothy.

      There are so many bars and restaurants in Spain that it is like a culture for Spanish people, so we learn a lot about them throughout our lives, to be honest. And of course you do not have to come back again if you did not like a bar or restaurant. However, foreigners and expatriates could find something unexpected when visiting a place for the first time or they may think that something ilegal is legal or normal. Therefore, we hope this post helps them.

      That’s good to know Ian. Unfortunately it seems to be a common situation in Spain. It does not mean it is a frequent situation, but it may happen in some places. That is by way of a precaution! 🙂
