If you’re a local restaurant owner, you might be overwhelmed by the task of building your own website. Rather than start from scratch, it’s easy to find a WordPress theme already geared toward restaurants and save yourself a lot of time. Many restaurant-specific templates include essential items that the restaurant website should have. Your site needs things like a place to show the menu, a reservation-maker, integrations with Google Maps to reveal your location, and optimizations for quick performance so that potential customers can browse through what your restaurant has to offer without having to wait for pages to load.
We’ve hand-picked these five themes because they check all of the boxes for their ability to draw in customers with their modern designs and the features you need for your restaurant.
Neve Restaurant is a minimal, classy theme for restaurants, bistros, cafes, and pubs. It includes a simple, attractive design, ribbons that call viewers to action, a pre-made reservations section, and clean menu pages that are ready to go. It’s easy to customize Neve Restaurant’s colors and add photos to the site’s gallery section. Neve is lightweight, meaning it offers quick navigation so interested, potential customers can easily take a peek at the menu and restaurant-style without wasting any time. It also has a responsive layout that will work on any device. On top of all that, it’s free.
Delicio theme comes pre-loaded with a section for a menu and location, making it easy for restaurants to get their website up and running in no time. It is also compatible with reservation plugins so you can take reservations right from your website. Delicio includes call-to-action buttons and a sleek, attractive design that can be easily customized by dragging and dropping sections where you want them to go. It’s hard for a restaurant or cafe to go wrong with this responsive theme. As a premium WordPress theme, Delicio is $69 and definitely worth the price.
If you want your restaurant’s website to stand out, you might consider Rosa theme with its eye-catching, impressive parallax scrolling. When viewers scroll, the site gives a geometric effect where the parallel planes move up and down. This extra dash of modernity will attract customers before they even see the menu. Aside from the beautiful design, which includes a full-screen header, Rosa is responsive, it comes with a reservations form, it’s WooCommerce ready, and it is optimized for speed. This theme is easily customizable as well and goes for $75.
For all food-related websites, including restaurants and recipe blogs, Foodica is an excellent option. Its design is clean and classy, including a slider, banners for ads, and a ready-made online shop with WooCommerce already integrated. Foodica includes six color themes to choose from and posting styles of either grid or list. It is responsive, lightweight, and just $69 with automatic updates.
Draw customers in with a full-screen custom background image, a great option in the Ultra Restaurant WordPress theme. Ultra Restaurant has much more to offer as well. This theme includes a full-screen layout, a sticky navigation menu, Google Maps integration, and pre-loaded online reservation system, and a place to put your menu. It is responsive and easily customizable, making it attractive for anyone regardless of their web-building skills. At $59, the Ultra Restaurant theme is a steal.
