In a few weeks we'll be at Budapest for our holidays.
We'll try to avoid tourist traps and we will pay in cash. In order to avoid more friction than that generated by the obvious language barrier, one thing I'd like to know before arriving is how tipping is done (if at all) by locals, specially in bars/restaurants.
In Spain, after I pay, I normally leave some coins from the change in the small plate where the waiter handed it to me, then I leave the bar without waiting for them again. So...
- Do local people in Budapest tip?
- What is the standard tip amount/percentage? Rounding to the next 100 forints maybe?
- Should I say something like "make it xx00 HUF" when paying, or should I act like in Spain?
- Any other places where tipping is common?
