'Price of a three-course meal dropped 15% last year'

Monday 07 January 2013

Cafes and restaurants are taking note of consumers’ shrinking spending power and cut the average price of a three-course meal by some 15% last year, according to food research institute FSIN.

In 2012, people eating in restaurants paid an average €27.50 for a three-course evening meal, the FSIN is quoted as saying by news agency ANP.

Total spending on food and drink rose marginally in 2012, with supermarkets benefiting most. Their turnover rose 1.8%. Spending on food in restaurants and bars went down 1.1%, which is less than had been forecast, the FSIN said.

I'd love to know where you can get a three course dinner in this country for €27.50!

@Russell, http://www.iens.nl/zoek-een-restaurant/index.php In Amsterdam alone there are a few hundred places where you can get a 3 course dinner for less then €27.

Thanks, Pepe. All I get from that site when searching for 3-course dinners at €27.50 in Amsterdam is "Geen resultaten gevonden"...

Because IENS' search engine doesn't recognize €27.50. Use €27 or €28 instead.
