Reviews

Great Plugin, easy to setup and use. It does the job very well.

I have tried using many different restaurant booking plugins in the past, some paid and some free, and this plugin wins hands down. Admittedly, it could do with having some addon ons, such as the ability to collect a 10% or similar booking fee to help limit the ‘no shows’ and an option for a separate ‘Thank You’ page to allowing tracking from paid ads. But in general, this is a very coded and solid plugin that does the job very well. The design is slick and simple, which ticks a lot of boxes for me and end users. When can we see some paid addons?
