Restaurants in Cape Coral
There are many great restaurants in and around Cape Coral. We have put together a small selection of restaurants that we and our guests have enjoyed. Generally, dinner is the main meal in the USA. Often there are so-called Early Birds offers, which are valid until around 6 pm. Reservations are usually not necessary or are not accepted at all. If there is no table available right away, you are kindly told how long the waiting time will take. There usually is a small area in the restaurants where you can wait, or you can sit at the bar until the table is ready. In the USA, it is not customary to choose your own table at a restaurant. A staff member usually assigns tables at the entrance.
After the assignment of the table, the waiter will come and introduce himself very friendly and take your order. Generally, friendliness is very important, as waiters are paid rather poorly and depend on tips. A tip is expected for almost all gastronomic services, with the exception of fast food restaurants such as McDonald’s or Burger King. 18%-20% is appropriate for good service. Please be careful: In some restaurants, the tip is already included in the total amount. The tip can either be paid in cash or entered in a special column on the credit card receipt.
Don’t be surprised if the bill is brought to you directly after the meal. Unlike in Germany, it is not usual to sit down and have a cool drink after a meal. For this purpose, there are either bars inside the restaurants, or you should consider a change of location. As everywhere in America, the prices do not include tax. Please take into account 6.5% percent.
If the portions were very large, don’t be afraid to ask for a “doggy box”. You will be brought a plastic bowl to the table, which you can fill with the leftovers to take home for the next day.
