As I was staying in a room at the Posada Tintes Hostal- which by the way is also superb value- I decided to try the 'menu of the day' lunch menu at the restaurant.
For just 12€, this was indeed exceptional value. This was a three course menu with a choice of four items for each course. I opted for the starter of pasta salad, followed by fresh grilled whole sea bass and chips, with ice cream to finish. The price also included a glass of beer, bread, and a coffee - amazing!
The two young waitresses spoke some English and were eager to practice their language skills with me - delightful!
Unlike in the UK, language skills are given a high priority here and the younger generation all seem to learn English,though often don't have the confidence to speak it. In Cuenca, few adults seem to speak much English. However, they are very friendly and patient, so don't worry if you have to rely on phrase book Spanish, you will be fine!
