"To Tip or Not to Tip!" Tipping Tip by Scarlie

Tipping, Brussels: 6 reviews and 3 photos

That is the question in Belgium!
The easiest way to figure is the following:
Start Point: NO TIP. 12% service charge is already included, and they mostly don't deserve it!
Exceptions:
a) You are a regular and you are treated accordingly -- 50c/person or couple
b) the place is small/family-owned and the serice is friendly - round to the nearest euro on a small bill; 1 euro/couple for more people.
c) You are a large group of people and you were treated nicely -- 10 or more -- 3-5 euro upwards
d) you are a British IT contractor -- you have way too much money and it's not healthy to drink it all -- 2 euro/person

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
