The local residents usually have early dinners from 12:00 to 14:30, so many restaurants and cafes can be closed once the dinner time is over. Supper, however, is rarely eaten earlier than 20:00, so the menu can simply be not ready until that time in many large restaurants.
The menus of many restaurants and cafes contain two prices - the full cost of a dish and the cost of its half. The reason for this is in the fact that food portions are quite large in the local restaurants, so many tourists order only a half of a dish.
Large restaurants often include tips into the total. If tips are not included, you should leave a bonus of 10% of the amount to a waiter.
Greeting each other is a sign of good manners in local stores and public places. A slight nod of head is a sufficient greeting. All other people present in a shop will certainly respond by the same greeting.
