General

What is Restu.hu?

Restu.hu is a gastronomic guide and a reservation portal that has seated nearly 5 million guests. To many restaurants in Hungary, you will don’t have to call. We handle the reservations for you. Here you will find places to go for dinner, a business lunch or a Friday night party. No matter how many of you there are, we will take care of everything.

How does Restu.hu work?

Restu.hu is a gastronomic guide which cooperates with a large number of restaurants where you can make a one-click reservation on the Web or via the application. We take care of everything else.

Reservation

How much do I pay for the reservation?

You pay nothing for the reservation service, it’s completely free.

My reservations and my personal details are not being displayed

If you want to see your reservations you need to create them via the same email under which you registered on Restu. It is possible that logging into the application took place through Facebook where you are registered via another email. In the case you want to have the reservations from both e-mails in one place, just set an alternative email in your account settings.

Why verification within 10 minutes?

We set 10 minutes as ideally the maximum time required to process your reservation, during which we contact the restaurant selected by you and verify its availability. Then we confirm the reservation to you by e-mail. Reservations made between 10:00 AM and 9:00 PM will be processed within 10 minutes, whilst the others will be sorted in the morning shortly after 10:00 AM.

Why are some restaurant reservations confirmed within 10 minutes, others are confirmed immediately, or some take more than 10 minutes?

In restaurants where they use the Restu Electronic Reservation Book and have enough vacancies at the time you demand, your reservation will be confirmed immediately by clicking on "RESERVE". But if the capacity is partially occupied and they need to verify that the reservation can be arranged to your satisfaction then in this case the reservation processing may take 10 minutes or longer, depending on the restaurant availability.

Rating

How can I rate a restaurant?

After making a reservation via Restu.hu, you can rate a restaurant in a reservation list on your profile or through a link from your email call. You can also rate a restaurant without making a reservation directly in the restaurant detail. To create a rating without a reservation it is necessary to be signed up. You can add a maximum of 5 ratings per day.

What is a verified rating?

Any rating connected to a real online reservation. With these rating we can be sure they are based on a real visit.

Credits and vouchers

How can I get credits?

The most common way to earn credit points is to reserve a table or create a review longer than 160 characters. The only condition for accumulating credit points is to have an existing profile account. Please go to credits page to see more ways you can collect credit points.

When are the credits added to my account?

Credits are always credited the following day i.e. 24 hours after the restaurant visit. The condition for obtaining them is always a previous electronic reservation via the Restu application or the reservation form on the Restu.hu website.

I didn’t receive any credits for the rating

To earn credits for a review it is necessary that the text in the rating contains at least 160 characters.

How do I exchange credits for a valid voucher?

You will get the voucher in your Restu profile in the section “credits and vouchers”, where you will also find your current credits total. To purchase the voucher you will generate it by clicking the button beside the credit balance. A voucher for dinner can be exchanged for 300 credits.
