In the local band club and bars we've seen the plates of bread/olives/cheese etc being given out. So far it's been when we weren't hungry so we've declined.
However, I wanted to know whether these are typically being offered in a similar way to tapas in Spain: I.e. free when you buy a drink, or similar to the Portugese couvert; where they give you them automatically when you enter a bar or restaurant, and then charge you a couple of € for the pleasure.
If it's not consistent i'll definitely ask next time, but wanted to know if there's a general rule.
