Tipping

Post by sandimas » May 17th, 2014, 6:02 pm

Never quite sure what the tradition is in Menorca regarding leaving tips: have been quite generous in the past, having seen some advice when we first went to Menorca. However, reading up on the web seems to suggest that tipping isn't the norm in Spain..."I have never seen anyone leave a tip just for a drink in Spain. Nor have I seen people tip at the cheapest 'menu del dia' restaurants.".

So what do others do? Are tips expected in bars and fairly standard restaurants?

Not expected but if you have had good service and good food then...I think 10% is the norm. Drinks people do leave a small tip, maybe a few cents.

We always leave a tip after drinks, if the service has been ok, which apart from once, it always has been. If the bill is 8 euros I'd leave a euro or so.

As Steve said, a few cents for drins, I watch the locals and it always seems to be a few brown coins. I leave 10% for a good meal.

Yes, I normally leave at least 10% after a good meal and if drinks, just round up to the €. :finga:
