depending on the price of the euro, it normally works out just slightly cheaper of rmost drinks, tho look out for the bargains advertised outside the pubs
Thank you, so with the Euro almost identical to the pund at the moment the drinks prices will be on par with this country and does this apply within the hotels as as well?
when we were there in september it was about 5.50 for a pint of lager and a vodka and coke. bars do vary so shop around and you will also get a pint for a euro during the day. Hotels being what they are, are normally quite dearer tho we normally do self catering
I remember a friend and his wife were over last year.Out walking around fanabe they fancied a drink and went into a bar that said pints were 1 euro.They ordered a pint and an orange juice.The bill came to 6 euros.Charged 5 euros for the orange juice.
This is a subject that is often debated on many Tenerife forums. You can pay virtually anything depending on what type of establishment you want and what you want to drink. There are many, perfectly good bars selling local, Tenerife brews (Dorada & Reina) and also a few others for between one and two euros. Dorada & Reina, in my opinion, are perfectly good beers although of course they are lagers. Hotel and bars offering evening entertainment will be more expensive, sometimes ludicrously overpriced, but you pay your money and take your choice.
My preference is for a good, clean bar with decent food and drink at a reasonable price. I never pay more than two euros for a beer. Wine in these bars is usually 1.5 to 2 euros and a spirit and mixer around 1.5 to 2.5 euros. If you want the same drink as you buy in the UK (Carling, John Smiths etc) you will obviously pay more usually around 2.5 to 3.5 euros in a normal bar. It will be the same if you are addicted to spirit brands (Smirnoff etc) but there is usually a cheaper alternative. I totally disagree with the idea that if your not paying a fortune for it the bar and the drink must be rubbish. As one of the other posters has mentioned, beware of the price of soft drinks, they can often cost as much if not more than alcholic drinks.
