Just wanted to ask if it's allowed on this forum to name and shame people /businesses .. Advertising, for example food on restaurant windows and walls at certain prices and then receive the bill at double the price... Or selling "draft beer" in cans!! Yes, English establishment with the classic Spanish excuse, "sorry, I didn't understand" although we speak the same language! 

Absolutely disgusting and maybe it's time to expose these people.

Off you go. No problem for me. Informative, entertaining even provocative. In this we learn & share. V

Villas you are so naughty! LeckyLes too!

If you want entertaining, check out “Named and Shamed Costa Blanca”. Plenty to keep you entertained on there 🤪🥂

I don't have a problem with that, so long as the what, when and why are included.  Let's hear it  ;o)

Hi Ang,

I joined "Named and Shamed" - I only lasted 4 days, LOL!  It seemed that very few people took the trouble to explain the nature of their complaint, so it was impossible to know whether reports were genuine or not - hence my request for the what, when and why. 

These sorts of review are only useful, and entertaining, with a few juicy details ;o)

Best wishes,

Kim

Hey Kimmy

No less entertaining tho eh? Like kids in a school yard. Just had a quick look at it before I posted about it (couldn’t remember it’s proper title!) - jeez, couldn’t make head nor tail of it. I did think the “boys” might find it amusing for an hour or so 😉

As you say, very much “he said she said” and stringing a sentence together is a challenge for some 🤪🥂

Battered fish, mushy peas and chips, (not "frozen",) advertise with lovely picture @€4.95, on a black board. 

But, we had our doubts so ordered large fish, mushy peas and chips from the menu at a higher price but that's fine, no problem.. 

We ask the gentleman, who is English, if they serve draft beer and were told that only 1 beer, German to be exact, is from draft.. So we ordered 1 and 1 glass of white wine.. 

We'll, it turned out to be a can of estrella @€1,75..  They actually took the draft beer out, according to the lady sjef (owner?) The English speaking waiter did not understand me after telling us  at least 3 times that the beer is from draft but its a German beer.. The lady (owner?) told us he should never have said this and it will be charged at half the price! Off course I object and offer to pay the full price for it because they obviously need to make money... 

Mushy peas charged at an extra @€1,50per portion, I thought was included in the price, to go with the cod @€10.95per portion.. Small glass of house white wine @€1,90.. 

My problem is, How can they advertise at €4,95 with misleading photos, and when customers ask for this then it's all excuses... As it turned out a table close to us wanted to order the €4,95 menu but was told its not available I think... 

I told this lady, who also told us she can't please all her customers, that I think they con people, sadly. 

Ray's chippie, you certainly will not have us back as customers!
