Inflation across Spain has forced bars to raise their Menu del dia (daily menu) prices to an average of €14 in Spanish cities.

The rise of the cost of a Menu del dia across Spain is due to increase of energy and raw material prices seen throughout the world.

The data provided by Hostelería de España and Edenred, the company that manages Ticket Restaurant, is the result of 611 surveys carried out across the nation.

The evidence provided by the survey shows that the average prices in Spain’s ten main cities are above €13 whereas five years ago they were €11.9.
