Nowadays, I still meet restaurateurs who think that it is not useful to have a website and that a FaceBook page may be enough, but they are wrong all along! Not only does the customer want to be able to check the card before coming to see if the restaurant is within his budget, but he also wants to be able to book online and at any time.
In addition, he wants to have information that is sometimes embarrassing to obtain by phone, such as the price of a glass of Champagne or a glass of wine for example.
Finally, he wants to see the dishes on the menu, see appetizing photos etc. Anyway, he wants to know where he's going to put his feet so he doesn't get in the way!

1 - El Torrero
Although the order of this list doesn't matter, I still wanted to introduce you to the site El Torrero first because I think it's fantastic! The navigation of the homepage is very stylish and very sought-after. This is not found on all sites....
Indeed, the mouse scroll reveals sections whose images are divided into two parts: the left part slides upwards while the right part slides downwards. It's very original!
If you are in the business, as soon as you enter this site, you might wonder what theme is being used: it's none other than Divi, amazing what you can do with this WordPress theme. The other pages of the site are simpler but do not denote.
The gallery page is also nice with the hover of images that reveal the title and description of the dishes.
2 - Seasons Restaurant
The homepage of the website of the Restaurant Seasons is sober yet very original. The white colour is dominant with small touches of this rather trendy mustard yellow. The originality lies in the background images of the sections which are fixed and which give the impression that the plates overlap: a black plate / a white plate and so on... Everything is only a matter of opacity and scroll.
The site is developed on an onepage that gives way to satellite pages such as the "booking" page where you can find a booking calendar or the "offer" page which displays a shop that allows you to create gift vouchers with WooCommerce.
3 - Eat
The website of the restaurant Eat Thai is very simple but yet so effective! A single page that announces the color - an intense orange by the way - where each dish photo is highlighted with a description and a price.
On the left is the menu, or rather the main navigationwhich invites you to click: you can either click on the phone number, or on the address, or on social networks... In short, a simple and effective site, I told you so!
4 - Freshbox
The home screen of the Freshbox website displays a full screen slider with automatic rotation. Then comes a succession of very colourful sections intermittently with parallax sections. The "order online" page leads to an online order page with impressive options for each item....
5 - Mendocino Farm
The home page of the site Mendocino Farm displays light colours combining white and sky blue... Moreover, this page is short and does not deserve a long scroll, which is rather pleasant and rare nowadays.
The originality of this site lies in its double navigation (one at the top, the other at the bottom) very stylized and which makes appear icons next to each element. The choice of the main font, hand-drawn version, is also very well chosen.
None of the pages of this site is left to chance, we can say that it is really a great job!

6 - Rustic Kitchen
At first glance, the Rustic Chicken site seems simple and basic... and yet it is not! Its homepage is certainly full of images, but what is very original is the sections that slide from right to left and lead to the different menus offered by the establishment.
7 - Speakeasy Coffee Bar
The website of Speakeasy Coffee Bar is very sober. It is an onepage in black and white tones that simply proposes a location and the menu of the establishment. The navigation is nice: it is on the left side of the screen, at the hover of the mouse, no need to click.
8 - Gastronomy Balance
The website of Gastronomy Balance reveals a homepage that is off the beaten track. Not only is it a "nested" layout, but in addition, this home only displays the main pages of the site in checkerboard form.
The mouse hover allows you to click and navigate to the different pages. The colours are soft, in beige/brown/navy blue tones.
The "our achievements" page displays a full-page gallery with magnificent photos whose hover reveals a description.
9 - Two Samuels Restaurant
The website of Two Samuel Restaurant offers a homapage that plays an alternation of black and white sections, some solid / others in parallax mode. The other pages of the site are in agreement. The colours and fonts are very well chosen.
10 - Casa Dorita
The website of Casa Dorita gives an impression of the past. The colours and fonts are well chosen. On the scroll, the home page shows a succession of sections, sometimes full page, sometimes split in two, all with parallax image effects. It's very successful!
The navigation appears on the right side of the screen, after clicking on the icon. The pictures are very beautiful and make you want to go for a ride! The site is also multilingual.
