    Hi Cosmofox,
    Welcome to the forum

    It should be like the following:

    The food is neither good nor expensive. If you mean : (not good + not expensive)


    The food is not good but expensive. If you mean : (not good + expensive)


    The food is not good, but/although it is expensive. If you mean : (not good + expensive)


    Although the food is expensive, it is not good. If you mean : (not good + expensive)
