A few Tips for you to use in restaurants
Written menus are not usually accurate in terms of availability and prices, so be careful when ordering.
Ordering salads can cause confusion. A "salad table" for the entire party can be ordered, increasing the price considerably as expensive ingredients are used such as mushrooms, caviar, olives, horsemeat, etc. It's wonderful if you are prepared, however, if it is a misunderstanding it could turn out an expensive evening. Make sure the waiter understands how many portions you have ordered!
"Gate fees" are never mentioned until the final bill arrives. If there is a floor show (usually at night) the cost of this show is quite high. Make sure you ask about the cover charge BEFORE you sit down to avoid any nasty surprises!
When ordering drinks, especially wine, the best is automatically. The best means imported, and is usually expensive. Ask the waiter for the price before opening the bottle, if you are not satisfied, ask if their is a less expensive brand - this might also turn out to be a good wine.
Always check your bill! Mistakes, miscalculations and incorrect pricing is common.
Tipping is inconsistent. A service charge may be included on your bill. If so, leave a small amount of money in appreciation, if this is the case??!! If a service fee is not included, a 10 - 15 % tip is appropriate .
Music is always loud; be prepared.
Note: some restaurants will allow you into their kitchen to choose the dish you would like. Sometimes they will bring a sample of each dish available. Ask, you never know!
