Restaurants As Rīga’s dining scene continues to draw its influence from a clash of other cultures, tipping (apkalpošana) is becoming more commonplace – up to 10% gratuity is common, and many restaurants tack service charge onto the bill.
Taxis It's suitable to round up the fare.
Hotels Tipping isn't expected in hotels, but €1 to €2 to porters for carrying a heavy bag is a good gesture.
Bars It's not customary, though you may see a tip jar on the counter for change. Leave up to 10% for exceptional service.
