Is it OK to take home leftovers from dinner (or lunch) at a restaurant?

Jump to last reply

The above question is often asked in this forum.

There is an article about it in today's "La Nación":

I'd say the answer is that it's OK, particularly in informal restaurants.

The exceptions would be all-you-can-eat places, such as "Siga la Vaca". If the place has a salad bar, the leftovers from same would also be excluded, to discourage clients from serving themselves more than they actually expect to consume.

If you order wine, it's also perfectly all right to take home the bottle, if a significant amount is left over. If you don't expect to drink the whole bottle, make sure the waiter doesn't take away the cork when he/she opens it.

Personally, I take home leftovers almost every evening. Sometimes for our dogs and other times for lunch the next day.

Have a great time in our country.
