Tipping culture at Restaurants in Amsterdam

For many tourists the tipping culture in The Netherlands is quite the mystery. Unlike other countries we do not have specific tipping habits. All service personnel in the Netherlands earn a minimum wage. Therefore, tipping is not required, but it is appreciated. In general, the Dutch don’t tip for one drink or when they buy something to-go. In a restaurant with table service they tip anything from 2 to 10%, but only if they want to show their appreciation for the server or the kitchen. If they have a mediocre experience they can just as well leave without tipping. So, what you tip at Restaurants in Amsterdam is totally up to you, good luck!
