Prices are set to up in the New Year when the government's austerity budget takes effect. Estimates are that just about everything is going to go up by 10%.

Plenty of places for a drink which serve a large beer for €1.50 during the day, some at night also. You can easily get a large beer for €2 overlooking the Fishermans Beach in the Restaurants on the upper promenade.

Bottles of Sagres etc. for €1 all the time in O'Jorge above Pingo Doce, decent enough restaurant/eatery at local prices.

Places in Santa Eulalia which do vodka coke for €2.50. Over the road from the Royal Orchid restaurant.

Basically beer is about the same price as in Manchester, average equal to £2.70 a pint for San Miguel and other local beers. Bottled beer is sometimes cheaper than draught. Imported beer eg Budweiser is not far short of double that.

Vodka measure is double or treble the UK measure for about the same price. On the other hand, soft drinks can be very expensive.

Most food when going out is a bit less than the UK, but you can easily spend €40 on a meal with drinks if you want to. A Big Mac meal large is equivalent to about £4.

Do check the items I mentioned earlier.

Happy hours until 8pm in Sta. Eulalia pints of beer (Superbock or Sagres) are available for €1.50 and go up 50c afterwards. Strip happy hours until 10pm large beers €2.00-€2.50 ditto the Old Town. Check out the smaller locals places for consistently cheaper prices at all times of the day and night. I didn't pay over €2.50 during our 5 days this week.

Worth pointing out that 'large' beers can mean pretty much anything. There is one bar in the Old Town square which sells Tagus for €1.95 large beer but I would call this more of a medium sized glass. You do tend to find pint shaped glasses that hold 400-440ml so some way short of what you would expect in a pint here in the UK.

Yes, in a Portuguese run bar a 'pint' is usually 400cl, or 2/3rds of an English point so that 2 Euro a 'pint' bargain is actually costing you 3.

Some bars use 500ml glasses, which is less than the UK pjnt but the same just about as a USA pint.

A pint is not a legal measure here, but you will find a lot of English owned bars using actual pint glasses.

A 'small' beer is small, 20cl ie about 1/3rd a pint.

Indeed!

:-(

I am expecting beer prices to rise quite a bit more. Many bars have absorbed the recent increases but with utilities, council tax and VAT all going up by at least 10% price rises cannot be avoided this time round.

The IVA tax on restaurant meals is planned to increasefrom 13% to 23% so you can do the sums yourselves.
