Waiters & Waitresses In France
The Cafe Norms
Take Your Time!
It might seem as if the waiters are taking a long time to serve your food yet the tradition in France is to take your time eating even if this means spending a meal at a table for a few hours.
The French Understatment
The french use "la ligote" which is known as an understatement.
If the food were bad, they would say: "C'est pas terrible" translating to "its not great".
If the food were good, they would say: "C'est pas mauvais" which translates to "not to bad"
