    I’m a giant seafood fan, too! Prawns, fish, squid, the whole nine yards. I’ll be checking the app out. I really like how picking a resturant is becoming more and more social these days, also!

    This is a good list of apps for all the foodies out there. Locating a good restaurant in a new place is really tedious and thanks to these apps, this can become much easier. Thanks for sharing.

    I have only heard of URBAN SPOON and ZAGAT and I simply like the ease and use of these two apps. I am a frequent traveler and only frequent travelers will know how useful these apps are.

    Thanks for the recommendation. These applications are really useful especially when I go out for a date and need a suitable dining location for the occasion. It would be even more helpful if you can share with us if these applications are applicable in all countries. I am a Singaporean and I would love to know if an application can be used locally.

    Yelp has more or less taken over my friendship circle and pretty much dictates where we all go out to lunch and dinner most times. Personally, however, I’m still really hooked on UrbanSpoon – it never ‘got old,’ for me and I still use it heaps!

    A great collection of restaurant apps!! I think “Don’t Eat and Don’t Eat That” is the best of this lot, since this app provides valuable dietary and health related information to users. Moreover since the app screens a restaurant based on public opinion. It will help in avoiding unhygienic food at unknown restaurants.
