"Ask for the bill" Netherlands Local Custom Tip by JulesRules

Netherlands Local Customs: 288 reviews and 290 photos

As with many things, some things in your own country don't strike you as strange or different, until a foreign friend tells you about it:

In Holland, after you finish your meal in a restaurant, you have to ask for your bill. They will not automatically bring it to you. And if you don't ask; you might be sitting there for hours, with the waiter/waitress coming to your table and asking "anything else for you?" over and over again.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
