I surmise those prices will remain as the base for future increases ... they will never go down to the reasonable price that they once were. Remember what happened when the Escudo was replaced by the Euro...all prices were rounded-up permanently. Remember what happened when IVA was reduced ... restaurants rarely passed on any savings to its customers

I’ve no doubt tourists will pay the going rate as they know no better but I intend to boycott those establishments which - they will find to their cost eventually - are simply uncompetitive.
