Eat Out, SA’s best guide to SA’s best food, has just made the lives of restaurant-goers a whole lot easier with the launch of a brand new app. The free app, available now via the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store – will give users the ability to discover, book and review over 6 000 restaurants across South Africa.
The introduction of the Geo-location technology
The new app has been developed to find restaurants nearby using geo-location technology. Users can also search by a different area, for a specific cuisine type to find the perfect spot, or by using the restaurant’s name. Extra features include the ability to bookmark favourite restaurants, view a vast number of restaurant menus, view specials in the area, and share reservation details with dining companions. Best of all, users can make bookings directly on the app to eat at signed-up restaurants. This enables users to receive reminder emails and notifications. After their meal, users can rate and review their experiences with the tap of a button.
Dining made easier
Aileen Lamb, Managing Director of New Media, the company behind Eat Out, explains why the app is a game-changer for the brand: “This was an opportunity to guide our audience along every step of the eating out process – finding the perfect restaurant, making a booking and reviewing it. We are incredibly proud of the app. It is a tool that South Africa needed and, as a defining brand in the restaurant industry, Eat Out had to fill this gap. By putting the ability to make bookings straight into our users’ hands and by working with the restaurant trade to do so, we hope to make this process smoother and less stressful than ever before.”
