Etiquette in Haiti
Transcript of Etiquette in Haiti
It is considered very rude to leave the table.
If it's a formal dinner, let elderly sit before you.
Men should always move aside and let women in first, and sit before the men do.
Some Haitian's think of themselves as French, but most think of themselves as Haitians.
There is a strong sense of nationalism in Haiti.
The most common toast in Haiti is "Salud" which is a toast to your health.
When beginning to eat, the host will say "Bon Appetite!"
Etiquette in Restaurants
In informal restaurants, you may be required to share a table.
You should get your waitress/waiter's attention by eye contact. Yelling is very rude and unnecessary.
For business dinners; do not bring up business discussion unless the other person brings it up first.
The host should always pick up the tab.
The knife will remain in the right hand, and the fork will remain in the left hand for the entire dinner.
When the meal is finished, the knife and fork are placed parallel to the right side of the plate.
If you place both the knife and fork on the plate at the same time, the waitress might think that you are finished and your plate could be taken from you.
When you are not eating, your hands should still be visible from the top of the table. You should place your wrists on the table and not in your lap.
When passing plates, always pass to your left.
The most honored person is at the head of the table, with the most important guest at the right side of the most honored person.
Men and women usually sit next to each other, but couples are sometimes broken up and seated next to people they don't know, so they can get to know them.
Men typically rise when women walk into the dining room, and they hold the doors for the women.
