  • This is my first xmas since moving to LG, we would like to eat out for traditional xmas lunch (other that Tipsy Tce or Wine Bar!!) -  any recommendations please from those that already live here or those of you that have holidayed over the xmas period. We were thinking of trying one of the hotels as I would imagine they will be doing traditional xmas fayre.

    we went to cafe arena a few years ago was great, like a big family dinner. last year we went home, used the cheep 2 week return flights. this year we are thinking of booking into hotel Barcelo Santiago, a friend was there last year and said it was great. Just be careful and not get ripped off,  so many places double there prices, what a ripp off. Any you have plenty of time, shop around for the best deal.

  • Hi All. Been away visiting the family for a while, so I hope dolly doesn?t tell me off for this.
     I think we should ban all Christmas stuff until mid November at earliest, what?s any one else think?

    On the subject of Christmas lunch I would echo all that was said above, but me and Dorris will be checking out one or two of the Christmas menus and we'll report back. I suspect that the usual top establishments of the area will do a great job, as for the price that depends on your view point but as long as they don't go mad like double or even triple their normal price then you should expect to pay a premium on a special day.

    On the subject of rip off, a friend of Dolly and The PM was recently in Dalaman airport Turkey, and Paid 11 quid for a can of larger and a packet of crisps, ouch!
    But an important point for all local businesses, you are all being told how expensive it is here, but the truth is, prices around the world in tourist destinations have gone up, the exchange rate has not helped with the UK, market but for the rest of the euro zone the Canary Islands are still great value for money.

  • I would expect to pay a premium at xmas, even double, why should here by anywhere different than at home. I went out last xmas day (in the UK) and paid ?65/head and that was a middle price, my local bars were charging ?45 and and the top hotels were from ?85.00, if you eat out at peak holiday times you pay peak prices.
