¿Algo más? – Anything else?
Un poco más de agua, por favor – A bit more of water, please
Y traíganos un poco más de patatas fritas.  – And bring us a bit more chips
Y la cuenta también – And the bill too.

Other words and expressions we learnt:
Un vaso de agua – a glass of water
Una caña de cerveza – a beer in a glass of the size of a half pint

We worked on the listening on page 18 and we translated it:

-The customer asks for the menu and the waiter creates a menu.
-The customer says he is allergic to one of the meals and the waiter says there are other options.
