Is your five star resort all inclusive like a cruise? First I have to admit that we have never done an all inclusive resort vacation. So I don't know if an all inclusive resort has a signature restaurant or two that has an additional fee like DCL. But if they are our there, I think it is comparing it to an all inclusive cruise.

Leaving from your house to go to a five star restaurant just to go home again is not comparing apples to apples. I'm not sure what you mean by an imaginary price.

To those that make frequent enough trips to a five star restaurant at home or while on a land vacation; I think they have enough of an idea what the Palo or Remy dinner would cost in comparison to these. We don't do five star restaurants so I can't make a good comparison between the two.

But I do know that we have had fantastic service from each of our servers when we have gone to Palo and we are looking forward to eating at Remy. And we will tip above and beyond the additional cost of eating there; if we feel it is deserved. I am not putting anyone down for not adding an extra tip at the end of their meal. I am answering the question of HOW MUCH WE TIP AT PALO.

Palo Tips

I am assuming that you leave the tip on the table for the waiter and not add it in your gratuities correct?

There will be a space on the final Palo bill to add a gratuity for your specific server. Same as at the bars. Main dining tips are done differently.
