By law, restaurants serving alcohol in Australia must provide free tap waterbut that doesn’t stop some from confusing customers into forking out for a bottle or two.

The irritated restaurant goer said she once answered “仍然” thinking it meant tap water and was shocked when she was charged £10 for multiple bottles of water.

She wrote that waiters hadmultiple bottles of water they brought to the tablewithout asking if we wanted morethat I thought were free tap water”.

另一个评论: “I had dinner with a friend recently, she she ordered the still water and I was like ‘they are going to charge you for that’.

She didn’t believe me. 出色地, 出色地, she did when the bill came.

Another was charged £5 for one bottle of still water at a fancy waterfront restaurant.

Restaurants in the UK are also known to only offers still or sparkling water despite tap water being available.

Those reading the diner’s comment told them tojust ask for tapnext time and said being asked for anything else was apompousway for restaurants to upsell products.

他们写: “Is there anyone who doesn’t roll their eyes when they get ask this pompous question?

If I want expensive sparkling I will ask, just like anything else on the menu.

Another diner added: ‘If they ever offer still or sparkling we always just say just tap water please. And they bring it. Happens mostly at restaurants.

It’s called up-selling. You can still ask for tap water and they can’t say no, but it’s literally their job to make profit. There’s no profit in tap water,” a third explained.

A restaurant owner accused customers of kicking up a fuss and told them to ask for tap water next time.

Restaurants ARE at the end of the day businesses and it’s not against the law for them to make money in small ways like this,” 他们写.

If you don’t like sparkling water or you don’t want to pay for it it is entirely up to you to control the interaction or say no, politely!

Nobody is forcing you to take something you don’t want.
