Must-know money saving tips in restaurants – Spend less, Eat more

money saving tips in restaurants

Saving money is probably one of the hardest things about adulthood, and if you’re a foodie, this task becomes 100 times harder, especially with the growing number of restaurants popping up around town! Here are some quick money saving tips you can use the next time you enjoy a meal outside!




Bottled water of any kind is expensive. The price of bottled water is 100% more than the retail price – so always opt for water from the tap.


Skip the entrees


Appetizers from salads to soups always fill you up and barely leaves any space in your tummy to enjoy the main course. So skip this part and your bill will look lighter too!


Main Course


Local restaurant specials are tempting; however, you should know that these are usually on the expensive side of the menu. Avoid these and order something that’s not under the ‘specials’.




Groupons and dining coupons should be your best friend. If you’re looking for the best site for hotel deals, online blogs such as Excellent Hotel Deals have some great discounts for restaurants that are part of the hotels.


Happy Hours


If you’re planning to have a cocktail or beer during your dinner, look for the best happy hour deals around the city. Get two drinks for the price of one as you enjoy your meal.
