How much tip should you give?
Portuguese do not give juicy tips. Please hold it with the locals and give something between 10%- 20%, but not too much more!
Starters served without asking!
It’s good manners in Portugal to put starters on the table in a restaurant as soon as you sit down. Portuguese would even find it a bit odd if not rude if this does not happen! Know that you don’t have to eat the starters: if they stay untouched you won’t pay for them. You can also politely send them back, that’s no problem!
