In continental Europe, use cash, nothing else. That's a simple rule you should follow, all other discussions are a distraction. There are some differences between countries but generally speaking tipping on the credit card is highly unusual, in most countries you won't find any routine way to add a tip on the bill and many people will not know what to do if ...

The classical way to go about this is to leave cash on the table. Your receipt will usually come in either a receipt-wallet (left), or a small plate of some kind (right): After you pay for the meal, drop the tip in there.

The total amount was then typed into the ...

Interesting comments about Bandar Persian Restaurant on the net (including a claim that a tip was added to the bill after signing it with no tip), but nothing about adding auto-tips to small parties. It's a pretty common practice with larger parties (6, or sometimes less) but it's normally noted on the menu. I could see them wanting to do it if there's a ...

I was in Uruguay for about a year we don't have any Indian restaurants. The closest thing would be Chinese fried rice in Jaun bonito blank st (I don't remember the exact location). But you also have good Indian food in Argentina 3-4 hrs from port of Montevideo. Delhi taj and bombay. We also don't get any Indian grocery there. All Indians stock kilograms of ...

In Slovakia, service and all taxes are included in the price of meals/beverage. If you see in the menu a sandwich for 1.23 EUR and a drink for 0.69 EUR your total will be 1.92 EUR, this is what you pay the waitress. If you pay by cash she will bring you 0.08 EUR in change and if you don't need to be bothered by the cents you can leave her 3 cents and take ...
