When we go out to eat out, we want to go to the best place that fits our budget and tastes, that is why we always go to places that we trust or have been recommended to us, but when we are tired of going to the same places , or especially when we are tourism, visiting other cities, we have to find out which ones are The best restaurants, and here our Android device is a great ally.
If we do not want to blindly enter the first restaurant that we cross on our walk, we can resort to one of the many restaurant finders that we can download from Google Play. And since there are many applications, then I leave you with a selection of The 5 best apps to find restaurants and bars on Android:
We start our selection with Google maps because it is an application that is installed as standard in most devices. With the Google maps application we can search for the closest restaurants by making queries such as “restaurant”, “Italian restaurant”, “Japanese restaurant”, “tapas” and co. We can filter the results by rating to see only the best places on the map.
Within your search engine we find section To explore, so we will find different selections to go to eat, snack, dinner, etc … showing the most popular places for each moment of the day. In each tab of a restaurant we will see its information, photos, popular hours and reviews.
TripAdvisor is the most popular travel guide in the world, in which we will see its logo on the doors of many restaurants and hotels. Its application allows us to select the type of establishment in which we want to eat and apply numerous filters to locate the closest restaurant that best suits our tastes. In the file of each restaurant we will have their information, photos and comments.
Yelp It is another great alternative to find any type of business, but especially for restaurants and bars. Your search engine allows us to filter the results by price, if they are open at this time, if they accept reservations, if they have any current promotion and by characteristics. In addition, it allows you to sort the results by rating or distance, and view the results on the map. There will be no shortage of ratings from its large user community.
Foursquare is one of the most popular applications to find places to eat, go shopping or party, also with a large community of users behind leaving ratings. Its search engine has numerous filters, it lets us see the results on the map and different sections to locate the restaurants of a type of food or service.
Finally we have Fork to search for the best restaurants around us, which includes different sections, the price list and a powerful search engine with numerous filters. It allows us to see the ratings of its users and those of TripAdvisor. ElTenedor currently stands out in the many offers that we can find in many restaurants.
