Food and Services Prices

Food in the islands, especially European style food and drinks that are popular with Europeans, are generally expensive.  The list contains food and drink as served in taverns and inns as well as basic ingredient costs.  Prices are retail values.

Services are included in the list since many of them, like lodging, are associated with inns.
