"No credit is given to this restaurant."

Does it mean that you cannot pay later for your meal in this restaurant?

I think "No credit is given in this restaurant." would make more sense.



Thanks !

Where did you see this sentence? If it was a notice in the restaurant, you are right.

If it was part of a longer sentence, "to" could be right.

No credit is given to this restaurant for starting the current fad for sweet potato fries.

(The suggestion here is that the restaurant was the first to offer sweet potato fries and made them popular, but that fact is not publicly recognised.)
