Ways in Restaurants

The Ways in Restaurants are several, here are the rules:

  • Usually, you have to reserve your table, in town or in countryside, to ensure you that the restaurant you wish to go is open. In the big cities, where the choice is very extended, you will always have change solutions.

  • In the Ways in Restaurants, have reserved don’t give you all the rights. The majority of the establishments will not be able to block your table and refuse customers. The most elementary courtesy must lead you to cancel your reservation if you change opinion.

  • Service does not mean speed but regards and courtesy. We often go to the restaurant to celebrate an event, and it is not rare that the meal is prolonged there. If you are pressed, choose rather a brewery.

  • The bill always includes the service, but if you are completely satisfy by the personnel, who occupied of you, you can let a tip.

  • The payment by credit or payment card is very widespread in the restaurants. It’s the visa card, which is the most frequently accepted, but we can pay also most of the time by American Express, Diner’s club, MasterCard. Stickers on the door, or close to the entry, indicate the cards accepted by the establishment. In the countryside, the use of the cards is definitely less current than in the cities. Provide with a chequebook or pay in cash.

  • The restaurant is a universe to which the children are initiated early and they are always welcome. A lot of restaurants even propose some “menus enfants” (Childs menu). On the other hand, few establishments propose high chairs and you will have difficulties to park your pushchair.

  • The pets are generally tolerated except in the big restaurants.
