No matter your business type, you’ll likely benefit from having a well-designed, responsive website.
Even if people can’t place orders on your website or subscribe to your services, they’ll likely be able to perform some important actions like contacting support or scheduling an appointment. Even checking out your address and finding out exactly where your business is located can be helpful for your visitors. Not to mention that your website is the face of your company so it should represent you in the best way possible.
For restaurants, a good website can be a fantastic source of new customers. A restaurant website usually allows visitors to browse the food menu, make a reservation, or even use online ordering features.
How does all of this fit into a single website and how can you replicate it with minimum effort?

Chinese cuisine is one of the most popular international cuisines exported to almost every part of the world. And, Chinese fast food joints and online ordering services are arguably even more popular than restaurants.
China Friend is a London-based restaurant with a simple one-page website that allows you to perform almost any action you’d want to perform on a restaurant website. You can order food for delivery, look at their menu, contact them, and get their address. You can’t make a reservation, which makes sense because the restaurant is more of a casual affair.
The website is easy to navigate and emphasizes the menu and the ordering process.
Another famous Asian cuisine, Thai food is also known for fast and tasty takeaway.
However, the first things you’ll notice with the Junjaow Thai website are the two calls to action: Book a table and Download the food menu. Both actions are performed by simply clicking on a link right below the hero image. Above these buttons, you also have their phone number and a “Whatsapp Us” button.
The focus of this restaurant website is clear – getting conversions. That’s why, even before you scroll down, you have multiple actions you can take that will get you closer to visiting their place.
Once you scroll down, you’ll see some additional information that will help you become more familiar with the business.
For example, you’ll see that it’s a family restaurant named after the owners’ granddaughter, located in the heart of Torquay!

The first thing that this restaurant wants you to know is how serious and professional they are in preparing smoked and grilled meat.
Once you scroll down from the hero image and brand claim, you can take a look at what they call their “culinary edge”. It’s a mission statement highlighting what they do differently from the competition.

Their website has sort of a handmade feel to it. It looks modern and creative while showcasing the business as a local favourite. Since it’s not a typical restaurant, you can’t make reservations or order their food online.
What you can do is explore their menu and read some genuine reviews from people who are obviously in love with their offer. You can also send them a message or give them a call to book them for an event you’re organizing.
One of the most straightforward restaurant website templates on the list, Beleaf Vegan is a presentational website more than anything else.
The restaurant provides food delivery services, but the menu on the website is purely informational. You can’t order any of the products, so the functionality is meant to introduce you to their offer and entice you to explore it in person or give them a call.
Customer testimonials are another feature that uplifts their brand image and work on an emotional level to get you more interested in the offer. Google powers the reviews, so you know you’re getting actual customer feedback.
The fundamental goal of this restaurant website is to tell their story and serve as a starting point for you to get information about what they do and how they do it.
This shows that you don’t need to create an elaborate website with many features. Sometimes, you need a working template to fill in with specific information and let your visitors explore.
Brince is a Lebanese food restaurant in London specializing in preparing food on a charcoal grill with a Mediterranean twist.
Their website is simple but professional enough to give you a good feeling of what they’re all about. It has all the standard elements you’d be looking for as a customer: the address, menu, opening hours, and some potentially important information about their business.
If you want to order, you can do it directly on the website through their ordering system or get in touch with them via Whatsapp. The Whatsapp contact button is actually one of the main CTA buttons, right at the top of the homepage.
This is a textbook example of a responsive restaurant website that gives its visitors a reliable way to place orders and get information.

Their web is all about immersing you in the colours and general vibe of the Caribbean: the first things you’ll notice when you get to the homepage are the vibrant images. Below the initial section that describes their business, food, and drinks, you’ll see a gallery that gives you a solid feeling of what it’s like to dine there.
In terms of functionality, this restaurant website allows you to look at the menu and get in touch.
Talking about a vibrant cuisine, you’ll hardly outdo the Mexicans when it comes to spicy, lively taste. Mexican food has been a global phenomenon for quite some time but perhaps nowhere more than in the United States.
Mi Lindo Jalisco is an Ohio-based Mexican restaurant whose website is beaming with information. You can read about their food, staff, drinks and explore the food menu. You can also use the shop section to place orders.

In terms of web design, this website template is quite simple but it does just enough to give the visitors valuable information and present a particular brand image. Sometimes, the best restaurant website templates are the simplest ones!
Kebab is a signature Middle Eastern dish that comes in numerous variants depending on where you are in the world. It’s one of the most recognizable dishes globally, and its popularity has quickly spread to Europe, where you’ll find dozens of kebab places in hundreds of cities.
One of those is Queens Kebab House in Leicester – the self-proclaimed best food delivery service in the region.
On their site, you can get their location and phone number pretty instantly to place your order. You can also see some great photos of their food so that you can know what you’re ordering.

Fish & Chips shops are almost a national symbol of the UK at this point. Even if you’re not from the UK, you’ve likely heard about this dish and the specialized little restaurants that make it.
Pilling Chippy is one of those shops – located in the heart of Preston, the restaurant makes not only fish & chips but all sorts of signature British dishes. This includes the world-famous English breakfast, pies, sausages, and more.
These local spots that make country-specific dishes often (wrongly) believe they don’t need a website. As you can see from Pilling Chippy’s website, even a typical local restaurant can benefit from an excellent online presence. In this case, they use their website to highlight services and build their brand.
And, when you click on any single dish, you open a reservation form that allows you to book a table in moments!
Tawa Land is an Indian and Bangladeshi food restaurant whose website is all about takeaway.
As soon as you get to the homepage, pretty much the first thing you’ll see is their menu with the “Add to Cart” buttons under each item. If you add a product to the cart, you’d be surprised how quick the ordering process is. It literally takes a few moments to browse through the products, put them in the cart, and go to checkout.
However, if you want to stay on the site and browse around, you can also check out their popular categories, view the gallery, explore amenities, and more.

The K&J Grill restaurant is located in Lambert, a small town in Mississippi. Now, the town might be small but the dishes are anything but: in K&J’s offer, you’ll find wings, burgers, sandwiches, and rib tips that will satisfy the hungriest of travellers.
One interesting thing to note: unlike many burger and grill places, K&J Grill doesn’t offer delivery. Still, you can place orders through the site and pick them up yourself.
As you can see, a responsive restaurant website shouldn’t be a navigational nightmare.
Think about it: people want to see your menu, order food, make a reservation, or call you. Those are really the only four actions people will be interested in when visiting a restaurant website. And, if you can provide some images that represent your brand, all the better. If you know how to structure information, you don’t need more than one page.
