Resteruant related spanish


Recommended Posts

I'm starting a new job in a week or so. I'll be doing food running and likely a bit of waitress. I haven't had a job like this in a while but I remember there being a lot of people who spoke Spanish as a first language and would find it difficult to order. I was wondering if there are any words or phrases I should commit to memory to make their dining experience as pleasant as possible?

What kind of restaurant will  you be working at?   If you are a bit more specific I might be able to give you very specific answers as well ;)  But in general I'd say  the member above me offered some really useful responses. I'd also like to add:


¿Qué quiere beber? - What would you like to drink?

No, no se venden bebidas alcoholicas aquí - We don't sell alcoholic drinks here.

No hay... - There is no...

Es el especial de hoy - It's today's special.

Le falta sal - It needs some salt.
