table service at Museo du Jamon...an upsell?

stratford | Feb 22, 2009 10:01 AM

So I was in Madrid at the famous ham tapas place, Museo du Jamon. I wanted to get a bocadillo du Jamon, a ham sandwich. The clerk indicated to come back at 1pm to get one. So I did, and when I faced the same clerk, he pointed upstairs, indicating I should get table service. But I didn't want to do that, instead preferring to stand and take in the scene as I had my sandwich. Question is this: was the guy trying to upsell and have me incur a sit-down charge, or just suggesting a more pleasant way to dine? I wasn't sure whether sitting down at a table in Spain costs more or not vs standing, specifically at this place...does anyone know?
