Vlad Posted May 4, 2011 Share Posted May 4, 2011 Is it just me or has anyone else noticed the extraordinary hike in restaurant menu prices since the TVA reduction in 2009?In Bergerac, which has very over-priced restaurants anyway (I would estimate c 20% more expensive than their Bordeaux equivalents), I could cite many examples but take L'Imparfait for one ( a nice place to go for a treat). Menu 2 years ago 27 Euros, today 32 (and that is after what should have been a 3 Euro reduction arising from the TVA reduction. So basically a 33% increase. I don't mean to single these guys out - most others are equally as guilty.I can't help feeling these places are taking the short-term view of profit hikes, I suppose thinking that the tourists won't be coming back anyway so let's fleece them.What a shame...Is this just isolated to the Bergerac area or has anyone seen it elsewhere?
