    When I return to the UK in August, I want to find work as a waiter. I know I'm a good waiter and could earn loads in tips if I work at the right restaurant. My question is, what kind of restaurant is best for tips? Where should I apply to if I want to earn lots in tips?

    - Restaurants in hotels or near tourist attractions? (Lots of tourists)
    - Expensive restaurants in Chelsea, Kensington etc? (Richer customers, higher bills)
    - Restaurants with lots of banker types with bonuses to blow?
    - Other?

    definitely not tourists. tipping isn't customary in many countries, and even if they're american, they'll be overwhelmed with the prices and won't feel like giving tips.

    I wouldn't go for banker types. Bonuses aren't paid all year round, and even then many aren't as rich as they might tell you. Plus many are tightwads.

    Quite simply, the most expensive and flashy (because the people wouldn't want to be seen not tipping) places you can get a job at.

    Thanks for that, nnnnl. I think you're right and I should go for a place where people will want to throw their money around a bit.

    Anyone else have advice or experiences or disagree with nnnnl?
