Restaurant Reservation Apps in Spain

apps-spainRather than relying on coupons from daily deal sites and having to pay up front, how about using an app for your mobile the next time you’re looking to save on a meal out in Spain? We’ve got info on five of the most popular apps available at the moment; show you how they work and what you can expect.

Most apps depend upon geolocation, with the aim of offering the user results in their local area, so they’re great to use when travelling around Spain. Some apps show results that are more personalised (type of food, budget, etc), whereas others depend on recommendations from social media, there are even apps that will find specific restaurants that accept Ticket Restaurant vouchers.


By using geolocation, you’ll be shown local restaurants that offer discounts. Each restaurant comes with a rating and opinions from people who’ve already been there. You’ll need to register and provide your mobile number and email address. Information is sent to you either by email or SMS.

App available for Android and iOS.

El Tenedor

Available in English and French (as well as Spanish) El Tenedor covers over 5000 restaurants in Spain and Switzerland. Registering is similar to the Restalo site, but a bit quicker.

Information about restaurants in Barcelona and Madrid tends to be more detailed than those in other areas of Spain. Details about your reservations are sent by email. If reserving at a restaurant that has a special discount, remember to double check if the discount applies to everything or only covers certain dishes, as sometimes set menus are not discounted (nor drinks).

App available for Android and iOS.

Ticket Restaurant

This app is specifically aimed at those looking for lunchtime meals at local restaurants where they can use their Ticket Restaurant vouchers. Results are good in Madrid but not so reliable when searching in other Spanish cities.

App only available for Android – app reviews are not very positive.

Restaurant Finder

This app is based on the results from Google in a radius of 500 m. As well as opening hours it includes user opinions, instructions on how to get to the restaurant and a phone number to make your reservation directly. As you need to access each restaurant website for further info on prices and menus, it’s only really useful where other apps tend to be more deficient, such as in smaller towns in Spain (or abroad).

App only available for Android


With this app you can find nearby establishments that will deliver, but don’t think that it’s limited only to pizzas. Due to the recession many restaurants now also offer part of their menu for home delivery, so you can get traditional Spanish cuisine as well as many other options.

As well as choosing the type of food and drinks you require, the app also includes info about any delivery costs and whether there are offers or discounts available. Additionally you can find user reviews.

App available for Android and iOS
