Cultural Differences-Restaurant Edition

We went out to eat last week and Steve ordered a cheeseburger and fries while I ordered a pizza. The waitress brought ketchup to our table and put it in front of me :-) .
When you order a drink, it hardly ever comes from the tap, usually you get a small bottle or can and a glass, which only rarely comes with ice. They collect the bottles and cans for recycling.
We have been to only one restaurant, and one hotel dinning room that had a highchair available, and then only one or two. We have yet to see a children's menu.
Almost every restaurant has cloth tablecloths and napkins.
In some places you pay an extra fee for silverware.
Almost everything, including utensils, comes on its own napkin covered plate.
There are ashtrays on each table.
You often receive a separate bill for drinks and food, and each time you add something to your order you get another one.

I hope you enjoyed this little cultural tour of Montenegro's restaurants. Sorry I don't have any pictures of the girls in this.
