At the point when a great many people think about the term restaurant, the primary thing that for the most part reflects in their brain is sustenance. Today, this is not true anymore; a great many people go to the restaurant for the most part for better services and acknowledgment. The services that are offered today can be ordered as either accommodation or mechanic services. It is under mechanic services that you will discover restaurant games and other sophisticated sports. One thing that is one of a kind with these sorts of games is that they are played in lucrative places.

wonderful gameMuch the same as some other sporting activity, restaurant games are disentangled into various classifications, for example, cooking games, server amusement, restaurant serving games and some more. Here are a portion of the most ideal methods for including restaurant sports in your restaurant.

From 4 years

Lotto (Michal)

A game that does well in all age categories, but it is so simple that the little ones can play along. And if that does not work, then it is also very nice for little ones to look for the pictures with the cards. If there are older children, you can also make bingo from Lotto; turn the turning of each card as a game leader into an exciting moment and offer a prize (a biscuit or a candy or something) for the person who has the first card full.

Orchard (Nanda)

You can already play this game with children from the age of 3. You throw a dice and you can ‘pick’ a pear, plum, apple or cherry. But beware; if the raven is through the trees before you, then you lose. Fun to this game: you play as a team against the raven. So you win or lose with all. And that feels nice.

Catch the Wolf (Michal)

This beautiful and simple card game from Janod took Grandpa and Grandma from France and that proved to be a good choice. The children like it and it provides the necessary laughter. The game consists of 16 sets of cards representing different fairy tales and one card with a wolf. The intention is that you draw a card from the hands of your neighbor. If you pull a set, you can discard it. Do you have the wolf, and then you hope your neighbor who pulls from you again. The one who stays with the wolf, loses.


Magnet Dressing Dolls (Nanda)

Dress up puzzles is always good. And a magnetic version is useful for traveling. This doll from Haba is already fun from two years. You can endlessly undress and undress Lilli. Super to do! And there are really many accessories!

Yamms (Michal)

This wonderful game from Djeco has been a favorite for years in the Travel Guide kids & co. It is a kind of Yatzee, but then for children; beautiful, easy and with animals. This is a fine to do, for children, from 2.5 years onwards. In three times you have to try to collect three or more of the same animals (or you choose the variant five different animals). If you succeed, you can put a star on your game board. And if you have three stars in a row, you win. Nice combination of a bit of tactics and a bit of luck.

Memory (Michal)

This game – who does not know it? – is available in different types, sizes and levels of difficulty. The principle is simple; find the two cards that belong together. Usually we take a difficult variant – with lots of tickets – so that it is challenging for the older children. If you play with younger children, you choose a few sets to play with. The little ones understand the principle perfectly, they only find it very stupid that they can only turn two cards and just keep going. Also fine.

BATA-WAF (Nanda)

Delicious game from Djeco! See who has the biggest dog. The biggest wins. Do you both have an equally large dog? Then you have to work hard ‘BATAWAF!’ call. From 3 years you can easily play this game. You can clearly compare who has the biggest dog.

Finally, a handy tip

If you now think ‘where to leave all those games?’, We now share the most important tip with you. The boxes that contain all those games, you do not have to take them with you. Because, in those boxes, there is generally, a lot of air and little to play. Buy before you leave those freezer bags with a zip closure or those pouches at the HEMA and put your game in there. Or make fabrics with a drawstring – yes, you can do that even if you do not have a sewing machine – and stop your games in them (for example the stones of Triominos or Rummicub). Saves a lot of space and you have everything with you (and also conveniently packed).

You have to remember that these games are specific to the requirements of the children and that is the reason that you can come up with the best options for the same as and when needed. It is also true that you can choose the best ones from them for your children. No doubt that they will be perfect also and you will be able to share the finest moments with them at the dinner or lunch.  However, while choosing the games, you need to be specific and make the children understand the rules of the game so that the other guests of the restaurant do not feel disturbed. Following these steps, you can make sure that they get the best options for their own entertainment as well. All these you have to keep in mind and then only you can take a step forward.

Best ways for building the strong restaurant culture

The term ‘culture’ is defined as the way of things that are done around the world. When it comes to the restaurant culture, it includes a lot of terms such as values, beliefs, vision, mission, norms, systems, habits, language, symbols and assumptions. Of course, the manager has a massive authority on the restaurant culture both by motivating the team members and living the core values. When you want to construct a great restaurant culture, there are some important things to do that include:

  • Initially, you have to describe about your culture to your clients and also you need to tell about the rules of your restaurant and make clear about the essential part of the firing and hiring policy.
  • You have to work on what are the values followed by your restaurant. If you are expecting for these values in your work applicants, what you need to motivate in your team and also explain it to your consumers. Of course, the best values can make a very big difference to the customer experience by simply making it replicable each time.
  • If you are starting a new restaurant, you should maintain it in a clean state to work with. But if you have already an existing team whose culture you are trying to modify, it could be a lot difficult to do.
  • In order to modify the culture, it is absolutely essential to communicate the reason that you are modifying the culture. This is because; the restaurant is struggling and you want to increase the productivity or the customer experience. However, it is much essential to communicate, communicate and also communicate your messaging in all around the culture.
  • One of the best ideas is creating your communication culture in the visual medium.

How to build the strong company culture

modern old styleThe company culture can impress the one whom you need the most to build the prosperous business. Of course, most of the experts believe that the business is all about people. People means includes customers, employees, lenders, investors and suppliers. In order to impress the most skillful employees as well as the most profitable customers, the culture of your company has a very big impact on your success. Fundamentally, the company culture is very critical and its performance defined in the following terms such as productivity, attendance, safety or customer satisfaction. Whatever the business it might be either organization or restaurant, building the company culture is similar. It needs to align your whole organization with its shared set of objectives as well as goals and also empowers the employees at the same time to make a wise decision in their specific areas of responsibility.


Overall, you have to be sure to align your company culture with the kind of work you do. Cultures that are perfect in one context can be disastrous in another. So, your culture must reward the individual performance as well as hard-driving the sales environment as well. This is absolutely true, when your company or business is moving in the right direction.

Tipping At the Buffet? Perfect Or Not So?

service traditions restaurants

Every country has its own mores when it comes to tips. Within our borders it is a token of appreciation for good service, but no obligation. Perhaps that is why we are also known abroad as ‘niggardly’. Unlike Dutch and Russians, who are used to giving a lot more tips at home and take that habit with them on a trip.

Good manners

good serviceAlmost half of the catering staff agrees that American guests give less tips. The big culprit is the euro. When it was introduced in 2002, a large proportion of the catering industry threw up the prices considerably, and this led to a reaction. Moreover, it became unclear what a normal tip is. Previously you rounded up with a few guilders, but € 3 tip is sometimes a bit too much of a good thing. Consequence: the hand is more firmly on the cut when we eat, drink or stay overnight outside the door.

What does a good tip look like? And how ill-mannered is it to give too small a tip? Some Etiquettologist have written in her book ‘How should it really’ in 1939: Both those who give too little to those who give too many tips show that they do not know their world. For many, the wrong opinion has taken the post that too big gratuities respect the staff and will result in exceptionally good service. The opposite is true. Personnel are usually extremely sensitive to correct proportions.

Do not be niggardly

respect the staff and will resultSatisfied guests, who do not want to be overblown, can best give a tip in a restaurant of about 5 to 10 percent of the bill. Also in hotels, bars, and in the taxi it is customary to give a tip or round up the amount. In hotels, the tip fee depends on the length of your stay. A tip after one night is not necessary, but you could consider an amount of 5 percent of the room rate. It is just what you seem reasonable.

Do you pay with a credit card? Then give the tip in cash, so that the person who helped you gets the money immediately. In hotels you can leave the money in the room.

Begging for something extra

On holiday or during an outing you probably share the most tips. You sit extensively on a terrace, stay in a hotel and maybe take a taxi to do some fun. When tip money is in place and how much you have to give, is not always clear.

Loose dollars

Americans, South Africans, and Canadians are changing their ways differently. In America, the income of service personnel is largely dependent on tips. It is part of the culture and tourists do not get out of it. If you visit this country, it is therefore very useful to put some loose dollars in your pocket or bag.

America sets the tone

In the Antilles one tips in the same way as in America. The many American tourists who come here set the tone. The tourism sector keeps its head above water thanks to these tips.

Canadians generally do not charge service fees. Hotels and restaurants expect a tip of 10 to 15 percent of the bill. Taxi drivers and hairdressers also get a tip in this country.
