Hi Kendo prices do vary quite a lot from place to place but i would say they have not increased in 4 years. You can get a large beer for 3€ and a spirit + mixer for 3.50€.

No idea where you got those prices from. It annoys me some of the rubbish people must spout.

Drink prices are comparable to the UK, maybe slightly cheaper even, and you get at least a double measure so technically half price!!!

You'll have no problems with prices.

Re Drink prices. It might just be me but over the last few years they seem to have come down rather than increase. In Some bars and restaurants i've laughed at how cheap the drink is. . Comparing spirit prices is a bit pointless. EG-- How do you compare the price of a single measure of vodka in a british pub ( I call it condensation) to one in pp that is usually half way up the glass. With difficulty say's I, and after you've drank a couple your in no condition to compare much of anything lol

If you frequent the like of the Irish Bars then you will pay more than a lot of the others in the vicinity, as with a lot of the bars on the front, if the r/e keeps improving then we will all notice a difference, this has been the main culprit over the last few seasons.A lot of the bar owners have been unfairly criticised,that's outwith their control, as Sparky says most of them have not increased their prices in 4 years, doubt very much if we'd get such leeway in the UK. Don't know where the story of 6-8 euros a pint originated from, that's total nonsence.

Default Price of drinks in PP

I think the prices of drinks have kept remarkably low compared with the UK. Last night a pint of bitter and a small glass of wine cost me £7.05. Last year at the Joker a small lager and a glass of wine came to 5 euros with a 10% tip. If the prices are the same this year that will equate to about £5.50 if I have a pint and a glass of wine. And I will get a sea view and sunshine rather than nicotine stained ceilings. Roll on August!

At the current exchange rates your beer and wine for 5 euros will be nearer to a smile evoking £4 - happy hols

Kendo. For value and local hospitality go to Bar Cultural on the square. We went in there every evening when we were out last year and after a couple of evenings the owner asked me why I was drinking bottle of Estrella. I was slightly puzzled . Then he explained that if I drank the draft I would save 50 cents per glass. Now that is service that I doubt you'd get in a tourist bar in Blighty. Like I say, great bar run by a very nice family and they make you feel really welcome.

Hi Tommo the bar has had a major refurb have a look here at some pics of the new Circulo Cultural in the square Circulo cultural - a set on Flickr , as Lollipop said the prices are still very good.

Bar Cultural is now in C/Roger de Flor just up from the post office.
