New Years Eve

  • Has anyone got information and prices for Restaurants doing a New Years Eve Meal? I think I saw that El Timon was doing a set menu for 29? but that didn't include any drinks...not even a welcome drink. Seemed a little on the expensive side...

  • Wow!!!!

    See what you mean about the prices!!!

    Hasn't the exchange rate made the restaurants realise that the money isn't there...either from residents relying on pensions or the tourists on very limited budgets...

    Butties and a can of lager in the plaza then....see you there amibothered!!!!

    The point is that it is "your" currency - the Pound - which is falling in value against ours.  Prices here have been reasonably stable for some months now.  Wages, rents, raw materials and the rest have not fallen in line with the decrease in value of the Pound, they have remained the same.

    Whilst I am sure traders will review their prices where possible, don't forget that Tenerife still seems reasonably priced to the rest of the Euro-zone.  What you need is a new Government and not for us to make it cheaper for you!!!!

  • Mr MAX

    Is ?3 for a large beer, reasonable for the euro population?

    The only people that the LGA must be going to attract now
    is the euro population.

    The UK Pound will go further in Los Cristianos and Playa de las Am?ricas.

    Well Mr Orange,

    If you are French - yes (ave E 4-5)
    If you are German - much the same (ave E3)
    If you are Swedish - yes (ave E5-6)
    If you are UK - much the same (ave E3)

    etc.............

    www.pintprice.com Perhaps not the most accurate place in the world, but the point remains - if the cost of the raw material hasn't fallen (i.e. what the brewery charges for a barrel) then how/why should the retailer drop his prices?

    And why use beer as the comparator?

  • Being a regular at many a restaurant in the Los Gigs/Santiago area, the 29 Euro?s quoted at EL TIMON, in Santiago, is an absolute BARGAIN. I know some restaurants that are charging 60 Euros plus for a Xmas or New Year meal.

    Besides EL TIMON is probably the best restaurant in the area anyway, so get down there any night and check it out.

    The Judge recommends EL TIMON.

  • I have checked round and some of the prices being quoted are just crazy. The previous reply says it all. El Timon is less than half their price. I'm booking up tomorrow at El Timon before they are booked out. At their price its a bargain.  ;D

  • I really fancied Tipsy Terrace on New Year?s Eve and for what they are offering I thought their price was not bad at all.  I was very disappointed when I was told they were fully booked.

  • Hi Rosie

    You are obviously in a very fortunate position to be able to afford 70? a head.

    Unfortunately that price is way out of my affordability range....on a fixed income that is decreasing by the day I need to watch the pennies.

    Good luck to you....within that price range the 'world' or even the LG region...is your oyster.

    Amibothered...should I do the butties and you provide the drink????

  • Rosie, don?t be too disappointed, i?m sure that when they found out the price, 90% will be cancelling, so if you can afford 70 euro?s a head, you should have no problem getting a booking.

  • If you check out the ?what?s on locally? page http://www.losgigantes.com/evenings.htm you will find for both Xmas and New Year that there are many restaurants to choose from, suiting a wide variety of budgets ? there?s something for everyone.

  • Yes ?70 on the night (no it is not a typing error) is high, whether it turns
    out to be value for money is another.

    It is appreciated that businesses have not put their prices up (apart from the
    ?3 pint in LGA). It is now about what you get for that price.

    You could once forgive the unordered 'roll & butter' on the bill, say at ?1.50
    But now at ?1.50 the value and the practice needs to be questioned.

    OK, so it is only the poor Brits that are affected because of the pound and the inability
    of its goverment over the last decade to be prudent.

    But many must be thinking twice when they spend here now.

  • I think, sadly. and for the time being at least far fewer will decide to come here (or anywhere else in the Euro-Zone) in the first place.....

    Tough times ahead I'm afraid, especially for resorts like LG which have been predominantly "Brit" for so many years - even walking around today it was very noticable how few "British" accents were to be heard.......

  • Having read with interest the string regarding the price of the new years bashes in Los Gigs ;D I would just like to pitch in my 10 pence worth.....We are fortunate enough to have managed to get booked in at Tipsy Terrace.....and knowing the girls like I do I am convinced that it will be worth every penny. If you want to make a special night really special then in my opinion you need to go to somewhere that knows how to throw a party....the Tipsy-Crew will not let us down....and lets face it you would struggle to find a more perfectly presented setting to see in 2009.......Can't wait!!!

  • Why not try Arch's.    They are doing a set menu for ?20....and if you find that is still too expensive, the normal everyday menu is on too.

  • I know a bunch of people going to SAN FRANCISCOS which is opposite the Barcelo Santiago on New Years Eve, they will be paying betwenn 16 -18 euros per person and i think he does it a bit cheaper for children. It does lovely food, went down there a couple of days ago and had a fab meal. The new years eve meal is 3 courses plus glass of champers and coffee, which for new years eve don?t think it?s bad at all. I would recommend booking up though as there is already around 40 or so more booked in there. Good luck!

  • We have been going to Los Gigantes for many years and we spend a lot of time there now.We have dined out at most of the Restaurants in the area but there is no doubt about it San Francisco Restuarante opposite "Hotel Barcelo" is one of the best Restaurants in the area both for value for money, quality of food and service. This Resaurant is head and shoulders above most Restaurants in the area.  Unfortunately we shall not be arriving on this trip until 2nd January so will not be able to take advantage of the great New Year's Eve menu at San Francisco, but we will certainly be spending many evenings there.  I would urge anyone to try this great restaurant, you will not be disappointed.
    Happy New Year To You All

  • It would be interesting to hear feedback on the New Years Eve packages. Were the 70/80? (actually ?s now!) costs per head value for money?
    And what about the less expensive packages.

  • I have to admit I was disappointed at not being able to get in at Tipsy Terrace on New Year?s Eve, they were fully booked.
    We went to Tajinaste, it was a great night, excellent food and entertainment, very reasonable prices.  I also went to see the rock band Its Immaterial there last Sunday.  What a fab time we had.  Their new laser light show creates a lovely atmosphere.
    Sadly I?m going back to freezing, miserable UK tonight but I will be back again for carnival.  I?m counting down the days already.

  •  ... 3rd of March?   Fancy that - we'll be over from just before then to just after Carnival ... so (airline bankruptcies permitting) maybe this time we actually will get to see the two of you for that drink ... 3rd's a Tuesday isn't it - see you in Domingo's?  If you land too late for that ... it'll just have to be those 4 barstools in the Bamboo again ...

  • I think you will be OK for airline bankruptcies until the end of 2009 at least.

    Fuel prices are well down and other costs are stagnant.
     
    The only blot on the landscape is that the UK government are hiking up Airport
    Passenger Duty Tax this year, for greed reasons, sorry green reasons.
