Spanish term or phrase:muy buenas
two men enter a bar, frequented by spaniards (in morocco). the mistress, "sat at the end of the bar, smoking listlessly. 'Muy buenas,' she said to them, beaming widely, mistaking them in her sleepiness for Spaniards. Thami (one of the men) replied quietly without looking at her (while the other goes to the bar and orders drinks).
this is from an english book i'm translating to turkish. i suppose the mistress literally says "very good" but it seems that something meaning "welcome" would make more sense? (considering the men are just entering the bar, and there's no preceding conversation between them)
