Any and all: "Tipping?" Local Eating Tip by unaS

Local Eating, Barcelona: 48 reviews and 37 photos

  A great lunch/snack bar in Barcelona.

Should one tip in restaurants in Barcelona? The locals say no, unless you get really special service.

However I do think that tips from tourists are generally more expected than from locals.

Generally for a meal that I enjoyed, or had extra service (like asking for help with directions or finding a site), I left a 10% tip.

For just a coffee I would leave about 20 Euro cents. Same if I ate a quick snack at the bar rather than at a table.

For a small meal e.g. tapas and coffee, again I would round up to the nearest Euro.

Favorite Dish: Enjoyed most of my meals in Barcelona very much!
