In Spain we like to eat well. And lunchtime is no exception. To enjoy a good complete meal at a good price, just ask for a “menu of the day”, offered in many restaurants throughout the country. First course, second course, bread, drink, dessert or coffee. All this for a price that in Barcelona varies between seven and 16 euros.
