Sorry - another tipping question on the tripadvisor, however it is confusing for those of us who live where tipping is not standard practice! I have seached the forum but was not able to find rthe answer to the following query:
Is 20% the standard tip for all restaurants regardless of price? For example, that would be a $100 tip for a $500 meal at a high-end restaurant, or $10 tip for a $50 meal. Is 20% expected no matter what the price? Or is there a standard tip per person at high end restaurants?
I understand that restaurant staff rely on tips and I'm happy to pay whatever is normal, and obviously good service should be rewarded appropriately, however I just want to make sure that I'm paying the "right" or regular amount.
