New version is somewhat better...

I've gone through a few iterations of "Where to eat?" The current version is faster and at least it doesn't crash on opening. That's a plus. Also a positive is the large variety of meal offerings the user can choose from. A negative, however, is that the restaurant reviews from the previous versions of this app seem to have disappeared from the app's database. Also, I have yet to able to find a review for ANY restaurant so far. Previously, I had suggested that instead of dropping the ubiquitous red pins when food-type matching restaurants are found in an area, why not use a different colored pin when a restaurant has a review? Wouldn't this be infinitely more helpful to the end user and might just bring this app up to the level of Yelp.
September 2019 and I hate to say it but this App is virtually useless. The App freezes after making a best guess since no restaurant comes pre-labeled. The user sees pins and then makes his/her guess. After the guess the App freezes and has to be started again. I chose a restaurant in Fine Foods. I guessed and got McDonald's. Re-start. Next try suggested a beauty salon, and I don’t think food is served there...fine or otherwise.

The app's improvements make it well worth the money and best in class

I would certainly not recommend this application in its current iteration. It does little more than open google maps and use its search field. A few improvements could make this app much more useful. Instead of launching Google Maps, the developers could use the Google Maps integration API provided by Apple, and not have you go back to the application if you want a different type of cuisine. The application could also provide its own descriptions of the restaurants it finds and maybe allow its users to review the restaurants. In its current iteration, it only uses the name of the restaurant to classify it. I mean, when I search for Italian restaurants, it shows me Pizza Hut. While pizza was originally Italian, it isn't the place anyone would go for authentic Italian food. When I look for Indian restaurants it also brings up native american food and mexican restaurants.
The favorites feature is one thing that would have given it an advantage over Google Maps is the favorites feature, if it worked correctly. Because you can't do anything with a specific restaurant, because it only shows the restaurants in Google Maps and not the app itself, you cannot mark a restaurant as a favorite. You can only mark entire categories, like Fast food, which would be entirely useless.
Update: The app has made improvements that make it the best in class in its category.

Where to eat?

Well, this app does provide some minimal (extremely) information on where you could possibly eat. No information on if you would want to eat at any of the suggested spots. So if you are a "high risk" gambler, and wouldn't mind possibly getting so truly awful "food" roll the dice, this app might work for you.
If you wish to assure the chance of getting something decent to eat, it is useless.
