Do you tip in Belgrade?

belgrade guru Staff replied 2 years ago

The “rule” is to leave 10-15% tip based on the receipt, and that is if you are satisfied with the service. Many new “upscale” restaurants decided to include a mandatory “service fee” as a separate thing on the bill, so no tipping necessary. It’s not common to see it (service fee) but it’s a trend at the moment.

In smaller cafes, you can just round up the bill. If something is 310 RSD it’s OK to leave 350, or if it’s 280 give 300, for 740 it’s OK to leave 800 etc.
