Tipping in Croatia
The Croatians are fairly relaxed about tipping etiquette. However service is not usually included in restaurants and it is common practice to leave the spare change, or up to 10% of the total in a smarter restaurant. Tipping taxi drivers in Croatia is not expected, but if it was a pleasant ride then rounding up the amount would certainly be appreciated.

Tipping In Restaurants: If service was good a 10% tip is appropriate. Beware there may be a cover charge for bread and water. In bars, simply round up the total amount.
