Spain Restaurants: 272 reviews and 242 photos

An affordable solution for lunch in Spain is the so-called menú del día (menu of the day) offered by many simple restaurants and cafeterias from Monday to Friday between 1 pm and 4 pm. This set lunch consists of an appetizer, an entrée, and a dessert or coffee. You have usually a wide choice of dishes for each course and the prize is usually reasonably, starting from 9 euros up to 25, according to the category of the place. Bread and drinks (water, wine or beer) are included in the menu. The options for the day are usually written on a board at the entrance or inside the restaurant.
