Booking process is simple and easy. My only comments would be to broaden the restaurant selection, and add more search options upfront, e.g type of restaurant / kid-friendly / wine farm, etc. as it’s currently only searchable by location.
Developer Response ,
Hi Lorna, thanks so much for the feedback. This option is already available to you. Simply search by area and have a look at the top right of your screen for all of your filtering options - this includes an interactive map of the area you have searched for. We hope this makes your app experience that much better!
User friendly and so convenient
It is very easy to use the app and so convenient to be able to make bookings at restaurants without having to call/email anyone. You also get a confirmation sms/email of your booking and reminders which is helpful.
Booking made super efficient
So easy to see the best restaurants available at the time and date you want them ... gone are the days when you had to phone, only to be told the restaurant is full...
