The search for the place is based on the type of kitchen you prefer, the area of ​​the city you are in, the price range, or based on the offer of the day: that is, you can only select the premises that in that day and in that time slot they practice a price reduction.

The consultation of the site is free, but to book you need to register. Each booking accumulates points, which double with comments and reviews to the locals: the credits can be converted into vouchers for 15, 25 and 50 euros that can be spent in the places participating in the offer. However, those who book and do not show up forfeit all the points accumulated.
