Etiquette Lessons: Hospitality


Brazil is known for superior service in the hospitality industry – restaurants tend to have more people on staff than in other parts of the world. And, when churrasco is being served, the skewer never so much as touches the tip of the service plate.

  • Tip: Tipping is a common practice in Brazil, but the average tip tends to be around 10 percent (versus 15 – 20 percent in the United States). Of course, if you truly enjoyed your dining experience or find yourself at a higher-end restaurant, there’s no harm in tipping well above the going rate.
