Charge card tipping

The question and answers about tipping at Las Briasis reminds me about tipping if you should be using a charge card for any non AI restaurant purchases. As I do in the US, I always leave the tip in cash because you then can be assured that the server not only got it, but didn't have to wait a month for the bank charges to be paid to the restaurant owner.

Answered the Las Brisas post before I read this...and I totally agree...ask the waiters to see if they do get their tips if you charge it to your credit card...doesn't always work out for the waiter...and I am sure you did NOT want to tip the owner!!!

I never thought of that, so we will try and leave the tip in cash from now on when we're down there.
