Are There Any Restaurants Still Open?


SCENARIO
Imagine you are with a relative, a friend or colleague. You are in a town in Spain and it is getting rather late at night. You both would like something to eat and the other person says to you something like: "are there any restaurants still open?"

In Spanish, the other person could say:
¿Quedan restaurantes abiertos?


OUR TIP
The question is an invitation for you to say whether or not there are any restaurants still open in the vicinity of where you are. Your reply depends only on what you know about restaurants availability at this time. Perhaps you want to say that you:
  • Believe it to be so;
  • Know to be so;
  • Don't know whether or not that is the case;

Here are some examples of how you could reply:
  • Creo que quedan restaurantes abiertos por aquí (I believe there are restaurants still open around here).
  • Sí, quedan varios restaurantes abiertos por aquí (yes, there are several restaurants still open around here);
  • Sí, queda sólo un restaurante abierto por aquí (yes, there is one restaurant still open around here);
  • No, no quedan restaurantes abiertos por aquí (no, there aren't any restaurants still open around here);
  • No sé si quedan restaurantes abiertos por aquí (I don't know if there are any restaurants still open around here);

Now you should practise answering the question:
¿Quedan restaurantes abiertos?
