Traditionally, a menu of the day comes with a choice of glass of beer or wine.
It is not that long ago that a full bottle of wine would be included along with water as well.

However, with Spain considering tighter restrictions on smoking as part of a new health bill, the drive to encourage healthier eating is gathering momentum.
