Default Bony's prices

Seem to remember this being a bit of a hot topic last year.
What are Jose's prices like this year and has he given in yet, allowing you to buy wine by the bottle?

Super 7,

Well you certainly like asking controversial questions don't you !!!! How about trying

a) Has the Queen ever voted Labour ?

or

b) Is Katie Price a loving devoted wife ??

Seriously ( & with absolutely no comment at all )

Happy Hour came off some weeks ago. I think large drinks are about 5.50 Euros and beer over 4 Euros a pint.

Last word on subject.

I only paid 3.30 for a pint at Bony's last week but as you can never find a menu of the prices I think he just charges what he can get away with at different times of the night. Was not keen on the quality of it either. but that could just be me.

Having just been for a very average lunch at a very ordinary restaurant here in the UK which was charging £3 for a cup of mint tea and £10 for a single shot of whisky, I don't think Jose has a monopoly on charging what he thinks he can get away with! (I didn't order the whisky by the way, lest you think that's my normal lunchtime beverage... I was going for the tea until I saw the price.)

Not sure how those prices compare to last year tbh. Was really looking for a general trend really. Doesn't sound like he's changed significantly either way.

Only really became an issue for us a couple of years ago when we realised that over the course of 3 weeks we were putting (a lot) more in Jose's till than we'd spent on flights for a family of four

His 1 euro soft baguette has gone up to 2E this year (never had one... anybody know if they're any good?).

Only drank there one night (semi-final night) and the final bill felt pretty much the same as last summer.

Default Bony's prices

I don't know why people think you can't buy wine by the bottle at Bonys.
He has always sold it if you ask and the quality and prices are good.
In many bars a nondescript glass of house is served and if you buy the small bottles at Bonys at least you know what wine you are getting which is good quality just like the full bottles.
I regularly have a pint each night there and the service is excellent and this years prices about 20% less than last year.
The 2€ baguette is good value in my opinion and I believe Jose is doing a good job coping with the recession in these difficult financial times.
