How to create a restaurant website

  • Welcome Message

A welcome message gets attention from your customers, and you can mention what kind of services you offer. For example, you can say why your restaurant is special. Maybe you use only bio vegetables, or you get vegetables directly from the farm.

Not only using text but using images will grab customers’ attention. Add some attractive keywords too!

Easy web navigation

A nicely structured menu is a must. Customers have to find all information in a moment when they click the menu.

Foods/drinks Menu You can also use the sub-menus to divide for lunch menu, dinner menu, desert menu, or drinks menu. Appetizing photos and prices are good to have with the menu lists.
Photo gallery Show off your restaurant interior, the foods or even chef and staff in the Webnode Photo gallery. The customer would be interested where they are going to dine and what kind of atmosphere the restaurant offers.
News Have you experienced that you finally reach the restaurant but it’s closed? You can use a News page if there are some events going on or if the restaurant is closed or on holidays. Losing customer trust shouldn’t happen when you own a restaurant!
Reservation form The recently added “Form” in Webnode is perfect for creating a reservation form. Make a reservation form easy and fast.
Contact Address, telephone number, email address are a must. If you don’t have those, how do you expect the customers to find you? And add the Google map easily!

    This is great suggestion. Being mobile will really create a big impact to customers especially to those people who always rely on the internet. As an entrepreneur, we should always be visible when customers search our business.
