Using Tesco vouchers in Restaurants.

Hello All,

I've recently exchanged my Tesco clubcard vouchers into Restaurant vouchers for Prezzo - my boyfriend and I have £40 worth to spend on food.

My questions is - do you have to mention the vouchers when you book a table? or when you order?

Having never used them before just want to double check!

    The answer is no, just bear in mind when u use your vouchers you cant use them on drinks and deserts, although when i went to bella italia i paid part voucher part cash and they took full value off the vouchers off so had 4 drinks for £2.49.

    Desserts not included :o(

    I know drinks aren't as it says so on the vouchers, but not mention of dessert not being included!
  • Drinks and Desert offer best mark up (i remember from when it was my business) so that may explain why they are excluded.

    I just exchange mine for Airmiles, i am probably missing some great opportunities...

    Is the dessert thing new then? I've always used my Bella vouchers for food, all food. It's just the drinks that are excluded.

    And, no, never mention, just present the vouchers/cash when the bill comes! Cynical I know, but I wonder if you would get inferior food or something!! :D

    i used my clubcard vouchers in strada and desserts were included just had to pay for drinks maybe it depends which restaurant you dine at
  • i had our deserts included in our vouchers for cafe rouge so the bill was £4 something for our drinks :)
  • We always just say when we order and we use these 4 times a year if not more.Id second what was said about bella italia,they just take the total off so have ended up not even paying the full amount for drinks .

    I always mention it before ordering. Never had a problem. Also I've got desserts with them. But best to check that too!

    i always mention them when i order - just cheched tescos website and it says not to be used for drinks - no mention of desserts so no idea where that comes from. we always have puds when we go out with tesco vouchers
