Dog-friendly restaurants

Can you really visit a restaurant with your dog? The truth is that you absolutely can, as long as the restaurant allows it and your dog is trained enough to stay calm inside the restaurant or on the terrace. Remember to respect staff and other customers by placing yourself in the restaurant so that the dog does not accidentally surprise others. Check with the restaurant what applies, if there for example are restrictions on during which times the dog can join and where you can sit.

Restaurant that allows the dog inside the restaurant and on the terrace.
