What percentage of the bill is normal? Don't want to come across as cheap :D
Quote from: Mike Cl on February 19, 2023, 05:16:11 PMYeah, tipping is the thing here. The typical tip is about 20%--this is for a sit down restaurant. Fast food places don't get tips. Personally, I usually go the 20% tip route unless the service is really bad, then I make it half that. And if it is just shitty service I've been known to leave a penny--a huge insult to any server. Good luck on your trip and have a good time.
