Tipping

Tipping is the norm in restaurants in Prague. The normal amount is approximately 10% of the total amount of the bill. Unlike other countries, the tip is never left on the table; people wait for the waiter to come over with the bill and it's customary to hand them both the amount and the tip at the same time.
