Are Spanish restaurants really rated in tenedores? I would've thought that it would ha derived from Michelin stars. At least, I always assumed stars was the literal translation of whatever the French is.
Yes, in Spain (unless this changed recently) there is a rating based on "tenedores" for restaurants. Bear in mind that the rating -I think it is up to 5 tenedores -is more to do with the actual restaurant, the quality of the place, more than the actual quality of the food (if I'm not wrong). They may also have a different rating based on the Michelin stars and this would reflect the quality of the food.
