Thread: Eating Outside in The Evening

  1. #1

    Eating Outside in The Evening

    We were in Lanzarote last week weather was not great and at night it was cold, why do people persist in eating outside ? sitting there with jackets / scarfs on shivering and their food getting cold before they finish it, are they in denial about the fact that it is cold ( you see the same in Tenerife ) some of the restaurants have heaters but many / most do not.

    It's heridity, remember the days as a child, when you were taken on a picnic on a freezing cold day at the seaside and your parents told you to stop moaning about being cold and just enjoy yourself.

    This past few weeks in Tenerife we only ate outside one evening and were frozen despite 4 heaters placed too high to be useful
    Other evenings we made sure we had inside tables
    In apartment we've had to have final drinks inside as too cold out

    Most people who eat outside are smokers.

    I think for the 'holiday maker' it's part of the attraction of being in a warm climate where it's possible to eat outside, as long as there is some protection from the wind, I would choose eating outside at every opportunity, when we are at the apartment in Tenerife, I would estimate that apart from sleeping we only sit inside for approximately 5-6 hours during a months holiday.

    It may say its a warm climate / winter sunshine but in the evenings temp was down to say 12degs with a cold wind and on that basis I have no idea why anyone would get any pleasure sitting outside if someone suggested that at home lets eat outside tonight at temps 10/12 degs you would have to fear for their sanity.

    We definitely prefer to eat out if weather allows, not daft enough to eat out in chilly evenings when food and feet go cold !
    Smokers outside can be difficult for non smokers ,one evening we ate in covered outside and couple next to us had 6 cigs between courses
    Belgium friends said not to worry 'those smokers won't be here by next year ' !!

    Can you recommend any places where I can order good quality vegan meal?? As I see this is a huge problem in here.
