If you have a restaurant and a restaurant website to go with it, you might want to read this article.
We have covered a lot of topics on this website already but have decided to focus a bit more on specific types of websites in a number of posts to come.
This one will be about what you need to keep in mind when planning or building your restaurant website and is focused on both restaurant owners and web development agencies.
First things first: what needs to be on your restaurant website?
When planning a website, it will pay off to ask around and figure out what your friends and family would expect on a website like yours.
For a restaurant, I think we can agree on the following things that need to be on your website:
- Your address (and more). This is obviously the most important element: people need to know where you are. There is more than one way to share your address with your (potential) guests.
- Photos of the interior. If I’m going to spend my money in your establishment, I want to know I’ll have a cozy evening and a nice table to sit at.
- Your menu. Not your website menu, but a list of all the food you’ll possibly be serving me at a certain price.
- Client testimonials. All the good stuff people tell me about your place.
- A way to make a reservation. Obviously.
Now let’s look into these aspects of a restaurant website in more detail.
