Garçon! Know your restaurant etiquette in France.
Member Comments (2) Post a Comment
Waiters usually don't like to be called "garçon"...
If you have something to ask them, such as the bill or a glass of water or anything else, just say "s'il vous plait" to get their attention or "Monsieur"
Handy tips that I can forward to my friends - rather than a long debate as to travel etiquette! Thanks for sharing!
