Running a successful restaurant is exciting and demanding. You have to serve your customers and make them feel special in your restaurant – every single day.

The menu and images showing the delicious food is of course essential for your website, and you should choose a WordPress theme prepared for this. Another important aspect of setting up a restaurant website is to have the right functionality. Having access to the rich variety of WordPress plugins can help you add the features needed to support your website theme. This could be for sending professional newsletters, adding cool widgets like calendar and events capabilities – you name it. In this article, I am showcasing some of the best WordPress themes with restaurant menu templates included.

I like the theme Pluto, for my restaurant is an elegant and useful template. I like WordPress, but some templates aren’t friendly with the speed test of Google. For this reason, I use now Genesis. With this theme I obtain a 93 points in the score of Google. Look and test this page: http://www.tramite.co/consulta-fosyga-bdua-y-fosyga-afiliados/ (This is Genesis, and the score is 93 points in desktop)… This is a rocket!

The theme Pluto for Restaurant (WordPress) is not compatible with All in Seo Pack. This is the main reason for discard. The URL aren’t friendly with SEO… The theme is elegant, but the SEO is very important, too…

Thank You for this Post – Really helpful for picking a cool theme for our new Pop Up restaurant based in Bristol, UK. I have been using themes from “Elegant Themes” which are great , MyCuisine is one of them, but wanted something a little different. Such a shame the Foodpress theme gets bad feedback on support, I won’t be picking that. Check out which theme we go for on our site, I will report back with a review. Keep commenting guys, the support of others keeps Wordpress ahead of the game ! R

Foodpress is a good looking theme but it does not allow you to create a child theme (pretty basic requirement I would think) and there is NO SUPPORT on the support site.
Unless you are an expert that does not need any help at all, do not buy this theme.

Reply

nev February 27, 2013 at 8:36 am

I would second the advice not to buy. The theme, as you say, cannot be given a child theme, due to poor code. More importantly, the theme is not compatible with the latest version of WordPress, so there’s no way forward with it. I also discovered many bugs in the code. The author has now given up any pretence of support.

Richard September 26, 2012 at 6:47 pm

Some really nice sites but find that while many of the templates have great layouts I find many are themed a certain way with limited style options and as most restaurants are strongly branded its hard to find the right match. Are there any blank canvases or frameworks specifically for restaurants that offer more options on the design side.

Great article. I’ve been making restaurant sites in WordPress for a few years now and I’ve always had a hard time with creating menus. One plugin that I think you should add to your post is the following: http://wprestaurantmenus.com/

It allows for unlimited menus, menu categories and menu items for $10. It can conform to your own CSS or you can customize the CSS file.
