Guess who’s coming to dinner?

YOUR eyes meet across the dining table, but you don’t whisper words of love.

The big question on your lips is: “Who are you?”

For booking a restaurant table online may be common – but how about booking a table at a complete stranger’s house?

Well, a new service has been launched in Andalucia giving people the chance to do just that.

The site – www.eatwith.com – which allows diners to register as a host and charge people to come round for dinner, has now expanded to include Andalucia.

Hosts post mouth-watering menus, along with drinks list, prices and logistical information.

One of the site’s founders – Guy Michlin – said he was inspired to create the slap-up meals with strangers after a friend-of-a-friend invited him to visit a Greek family’s home for dinner, giving him a different take on the country.

He said: “As a tourist, it’s easy to feel disconnected, like you’re walking in a bubble. The best way to break the bubble and enrich your connection to a place is to interact with real people in their own private spaces.”

  1. I’d do it in a heartbeat. I’ll even bring my own fork. Just don’t serve anything too weird; I don’t do raw, fins, or obscure innards. And lots of bread and wine, please.
