I know this topic has been covered on the forum before, but not within the past six months. During a recent trip to Bequia, I noticed that most restaurants charged a 10% service charge, and most - but not all - left room on a credit card bill for an additional tip. For the ones that don't provide that space, is an additional tip discouraged? And for the ones that do, is a tip beyond the service charge expected? My only awkward moment of the trip occurred during lunch at De Reef. Service was okay, but not great, so I didn't intend to add an additional gratuity. The bartender called me over to make sure that I had reviewed my bill before signing. It may have been the sunburn, but I'm pretty sure I blushed.
