In Spain they take a really long time with their 4 hours. And they eat really late at night. Its more of an "experience". They eat tiny plates called "tapas" which are shared its like eating ten different appetizers for dinner instead of a huge meal.

They don't sit down to dinner until about midnight. In fact, if you go to a restaurant in Spain, you probably won't see ANY Spaniards eating until at least 10! (they might be in the bar having tapas, but they won't be having meals...the only people you'll see before then would be foreigners.) Two main courses, a soup, pasta, or rice dish first, then a main plate which usually consists of a meat or eggs, and a vegetable or potato. Salad might be served later, as a dessert, or sometimes can be served as the vegetable. No fact, adults won't often drink any milk, ever, but wine (usualy a tinto, rarely anything white) or beer is more typical than soda or even water, and they never drink tap water (though it's perfectly good in most of the country), only bottled water. Coffee, typically black, is served after the meal is over, and dessert is usually fruit. You have pastries for snacks...and...yum!
