Perhaps they should think ,SERVICE
Giving good attentive service which in Bulgaria a lot of staff have no interest in they bring out food on a plate put it in front of you and walk away ,you never see them again until they want paid never ask was the food GOOD
is everything alright ? OR for example two people sit down for lunch and order a meal , they bring out one meal and the other comes about twenty minutes later when ask why or where is my meal they say YOURS TAKES LONGER TO COOK so they do not have the brains to start cooking the meal that takes longer first ?
Most of my friends that have been in Bulgaria say the same thing the staff service level is very poor .
It should not matter if it a street cafe or a luxury restaurant the cook and staff should show more respect for the customer who pays the bill and more important they should have more PRIDE in themselves and what they do. IT is the person serving that the customer rates the business on and how well they have been treated.
The customer does not know what the staff are paid and it should not matter either way it is the person serving that lets themselves down with poor service and that then reflects on the country .
