Tipping in Spain



Many people are embarrassed when they dine with company in a Spanish Restaurant, and their friends do not leave a tip.


So what are the accepted customs when it comes to tips in Spanish Restaurants?


Usually, a 15% service charge is already ready added within the cost of the dishes, as denoted by the words ''Sercivio incluido'' on the bill.
If the meal has been exceptional, or the service particularly friendly and generous, it is acceptable to leave a further 1 or 2 euro per person as a small tip.

Tipping in Bars

Usually, a bill is requested at the end of drinking in a bar - payment is not expected after ordering each round of drinks.
A tip of some small loose change is quite adequate.

The Spanish (and more particularly Catalan) culture means that they do not expect a significant tip.
A large tip at a restaurant or bar is, in fact, considered brash.

If you regularly frequent a particular bar or restaurant it is, however, quite acceptable to present the owner or regular waiter with a gift of a bottle of wine or spirits etc at Christmas
