A beautiful atmosphere, comfortable decor, a unique atmosphere and of course, great food – all of these are the elements that make a good restaurant. We generally assume that most eateries will include the cost of these in their prices and therefore charge customers accordingly. However, a Spanish customer was recently shocked after going to a restaurant. To his surprise, the restaurant charged him for things like the cutlery he used and even how many times he called the waiter while he was dining on the terrace. Watch:
A nosotros nos ocurrió algo curioso hace unos dias en Benavente. Cada vez que venía el camarero a la mesa de la terraza a traer algo: cerveza, la tapa … nos cobraba 20 cént. El colmo fue el euro que nos cobró por poner unos cubiertos para cortar una tosta que habíamos pedido. pic.twitter.com/IyeJ0BNJCr– Blas Galey Hermoso (@blasgaley) November 1, 2021

The photo was shared on Twitter by user Blas Galey Hermoso in response to a Twitter thread. In this thread, people are discussing how they are being wrongly charged for things that exceed their expectations. While the discussion took place in November 2021, it gained attention online once again.
Blas Galey Hermoso also shared all about his visit to a place called Imperial Bar in Benavente, a town in Spain. “A strange thing happened to us a few days ago in Benavente. Every time the waiter came to the rooftop table to bring something: beer, tapas, he charged us 20 cents,” Hermoso said. revealed in a tweet written in Spanish. In the bill we can see a 20 cent fee charged for ‘Servicio Terraza’ or the terrace service with multiple entries against it. Moreover, customers are even charged 1 Euro for ‘servicio cuberto’ or cutlery fee. “The last straw was the euro he charged us to put in some cutlery to cut a toast we ordered,” the customer complained.

The problem of the Spanish customer has resonated with many users on the internet. People said he really should have brought cutlery because the restaurant already charged him. However, according to Spanish News Today, restaurants often charge extra when served from the rooftop bar. Imperial Bar also emphasizes that the 20 cent fee is charged for the drinks and not for the service itself.
