Local etiquette on tipping in restaurants: 10% is normal to tip, and even when the bill says “Service is not included” it means “the TIP is not included,” service is always included.
It is unnecessary to tip your Taxi driver. However, it is appropriate to round up the fair or add a few extra coins for exceptional service.
