10 Appetizing Restaurant Websites


It is common knowledge within the design world that most restaurant websites are terrible. For this post I have compiled a selection of the best restaurant websites around.

1. Brasserie Gerard – www.brasseriegerard.com

Simple, modern and clean, this website utilizes a minimal colour scheme to keep things fresh.

2. Meze Meze – www.mezemeze.net

The appealing elements of this website is the font choice and the structured layout. Everything is spaced out well and clear and the illustrations are a nice feature. The colour scheme doesn’t really scream GREEK to me, but other than that it is a nice job!

3. Sushi Concept – https://browse.deviantart.com/designs/web/?q=restaurant&order=9&offset=48#/d29et0i

This design is a concept I found on deviant art. Any sushi restaurant would be lucky to have this design as their website! Clean, good colour scheme and a great use of images. It almost makes me want to like sushi!

4. Burger King – www.burgerking.com

The design for burger king is pretty non existent, but I found the concept quite interesting. You can use the sliders to alter the page depending on what you want to see. For example, if you want to see more details about their food, or about latest offers, you just simply drag the sliders to your satisfaction!

5. Chez Gerard – https://www.chezgerard.co.uk/

This website is something different. The use of the plate and cutlery as the background is a nice element but the layout on every page could benefit from an overhaul. Overall, an eye catching design!

6. Nuevo Aurich – https://www.nuevo-aurich.de/

The main image on this website is great! A nice selection of food with amazing colours a nice perspective, but…it is just simply too big! The rest of the website just gets lost beneath it. Everything looks delicious though!

7. Zizzi – https://www.zizzi.co.uk/

The purple and grey colour scheme works well and looks modern, however it doesn’t really say Italian dining to me. The logo is really nice, and the layout is simple yet effective. I particularly like the grainyness of the background contrasted with the dark grey.

8. Culinaria Food and Wine – https://www.culinariafoodandwine.com/

This website is the only restaurant site I came across with a full page image. The website itself is a nice design yet a little overwhelming. I think this layout would have been better suited to an interior design website rather than a restaurant.

9. Ruby Tuesday – https://www.rubytuesday.com/

The design of this website is fresh and modern. The menu with corresponding icons is a feature I have not seen in the other websites and I think this attention to detail is what sets it apart from the others. The website is up-to-date with social networking intergration and the layout is well organized. The main image is a little on the large side, causing more scrolling than is necessary.

10. Carluccio’s – https://www.carluccios.com/

The white and blue colour scheme creates a modern yet effective design. The use of images adds depth to this otherwise minimal website. The layout is well structured and it was a good idea to put the different sections such as “Find your nearest Carluccio’s” or “Dates for your diary” immediately on the homepage!

Privacy Preference Center

Session

Also called a transient cookie, a cookie that is erased when the user closes the Web browser. The session cookie is stored in temporary memory and is not retained after the browser is closed. Session cookies do not collect information from the user s computer.

They are usually used to temporarily keep track of users' preferences (eg. currency, language, items you place in the cart - in case of an e-commerce website, which this website is not) throughout the website. Other times they are used to make sure the user is not a malicious bot trying to take down a website, hence the cookie cannot be disabled for security reasons.

They are usually harmless (or they should be!) and will go away when you leave the website or close the browser.

Analytics

Persistent Cookies.

Also called a permanent cookie, or a stored cookie, a cookie that is stored on a user's hard drive, until it expires (persistent cookies are set with expiration dates) or until the user deletes the cookie.

These cookies are meant to profile the website's visitors and let the admins know who visits their website. Your name is NOT tracked, but your IP, country, browser and device specs, research terms and more, usually is. It helps admins understand what contents their users like best and who is their audience, in order to provide better and more targeted content.

Other cookies have the same functions as session ones: for example, they simply help the browser remember if your Internet connection is fast enough to play high-quality videos next time, or what language you chose for your subtitles.

Some of these might be relatively harmelss, since they were meant to first and foremost help admins to manage their site's audience and content, however they might also be used, to be collected and sold to third parties.

Advertising

Persistent Cookies.

Also called a permanent cookie, or a stored cookie, a cookie that is stored on a user's hard drive, until it expires (persistent cookies are set with expiration dates) or until the user deletes the cookie.

These cookies are meant to collect your browsing preferences (your searches, the websites you visit, things you like or don't like, personal conditions and things you might not want a third party to know about nor to be sold to someone else).

A vast majority of websites, search engines, apps and social networks, will place these cookies in your browsers because they are showing you ads and making money off them. This is not inherently bad, however the ad you see, comes also with these cookies, to help Advertising Networks to show you even more relevant ads, as well as collect a vast amount of data about Internet users, to then be sold or mishandled in ways that could harm society.

This website shows Ads from Google, therefore it places their cookies in your browser (sorry!).
If you don't wish to be tracked, please adjust your privacy settings here.
We also show Facebook Ads, therefore if you don't wish to be tracked by them, please head over here to change your settings.

Also turn these cookies' consent toggle OFF.

Please understand that not allowing Advertising cookies to be placed in your browser, does NOT mean you will not see ads, you STILL will, but they simply will not be relevant to your own interests anymore.

On Chrome, click here, to block all third party cookies (they might all be used for advertising or collect your preference to be sold to the highest bidder, though, but most likely they will be).

If you want to have even more control over which third parties can collect your data (even outside this website), please visit this website.
