Next we got to order some food, too, and moved from the cafe and bar into a restaurant.  Here is the additional language we learnt.

Die Speisekarte, bitte            the menu, please

Als Vorspeise                          for starter

Als Hauptgericht                    for main course

Als Nachspeise                       for pudding

Guten Appetit!                       enjoy your meal

Hat’s geschmeckt?                did you enjoy your meal?

Ja, es hat gut geschmeckt     yes, it was good

Die Rechnung, bitte               the bill, please

Das ist für Sie                         something for you (when giving a tip)
