The best restaurant websites all have one thing in common: optimized and responsive web pages that make it incredibly easy for users to find what they’re looking for. Research indicates that 77% of diners visit a restaurant’s website before they decide to dine in or order online from an establishment. Of that group, more than half of people admitted that a poor website experience discourages them from visiting the restaurant altogether.
This makes it obvious that a user-friendly, well-designed website is crucial to the success of any online food business. This is easier said than done, and a great restaurant website is a lot harder to achieve than you might think. We’ve put together a list of our favorite restaurant websites that you can take inspiration from to create a powerful first impression on potential customers.
