Asda Money picks their top spots for dining out on a budget
Portugal has been crowned as the cheapest popular holiday destination in Europe to enjoy a meal out. A three-course meal costs a family of four just under GBP 50(i) including a bottle of house wine in a local restaurant.
Sri Lanka is another popular holiday destination which offers plentiful cheap eats to suit all tastes and budgets. A three course evening meal for two adults with a bottle of house wine could cost just GBP 18.12(ii). Not only can Sri Lanka offer tasty treats, but the country is home to some of the world's most stunning tropical beaches and climates.
British holidaymakers flock to Spain and it remains one of the nation's favourite holiday destinations. Overall costs make it a cheaper destination to visit than Portugal if you're considering a sunny European destination; however, eating is slightly more expensive. A three course evening meal for two adults with a bottle of house wine would set you back GBP 22.73 in Spain compared to GBP 21.82 in Portugal.(iii)
For those on a shoe-string budget, India might be a great holiday destination option. You can often find cheap eats and happily live off as little as GBP 15 a day for meals out. You can find a range of traditional Indian foods, ideal for those who like curry.
Mexico offers a diverse range of sights and sounds, however, when it comes to food, it is largely a meat eating country which gives vegetarians very few options. A three course evening meal for two adults with a bottle of house wine costs just over GBP 26.(iv)
