English Menu offered to you when dining...

I always thought when dining abroad when you are given an English Menu that restaurant must not be worth their salt. When I was in Rome in 2007 my husband and I were seated in a back room and given a single pink piece of paper with a very limited menu in English...I almost walked out. I didn't and the meal was alright, nothing special that's for sure.
What do you think??
We are going to be visiting Barcelona for a week in May and I love to study up on all the food terms and words so I can read the regular menu in all it's glory. I am a little nervous about reading a Catalonia menu- Spanish food words don't seem the same (maybe it's just me) I wonder just how many restaurants have their regular menu translated in English since Barcelona and Madrid are now major foodie destinations.
