Restaurants follow French mealtimes, serving lunch from noon to 2:30 pm and dinner from 7:30 or 8 pm. Some cafés serve food all day long. If you have your heart set on a specific restuarant, it's wise to reserve a table for dinner; top choices book up months in advance. When you're ready for the check, you must ask for it (it's considered rude to bring a bill unbidden). In cafés you'll get a register receipt with your order. Servis (gratuity) is always included, but it's good form to leave something extra if you're satisfied with the service: a few cents for drinks, €1 for lunch, €3 at dinner. Leave 5% of the bill only in higher-end restaurants.
