"To tip or not to tip?" Tipping Tip by matcrazy1

Tipping, Brussels: 6 reviews and 3 photos

That is the question!
Tip is included in your bill in restaurants. I think that additional tipping (paid either in cash or credit/debit card) is not necessary unless you want to prize extremely good service.

Although if you are from "high tipping" country (like the USA) and you feel somewhat uncomortable without tipping, you are surely welcome :-))).

From my VT-friend bart_warreyn from Brussels:
We do add tips to the "prices with tip included" in Brussels but these are very low. Some guidebooks talk about 10% which is highy exaggerated. A very common way of tipping is rounding off to the higher EURO : example EUR 5,40 -> EUR 6,00 but also EUR 5,80 -> EUR 6,00.
Thank you very much for your explanations!
