DESTINATIONS portugal tipping-31
Service is not always included in café, restaurant, and hotel bills. Waiters and other service people are sometimes poorly paid, and leaving a tip of around 5%–10% will be appreciated (though locals often don't tip at all). If, however, you received bad service, never feel obligated (or intimidated) to leave a tip. Also, if you have something small, such as a sandwich or petiscos (appetizers) at a bar, you can leave just enough to round out the bill to the nearest €1.
