What are the main 3 senses engaged when someone thinks about food?
Sight, taste and smell. Since we can’t convey the smell and taste via screens to a website visitor yet (who knows, maybe in the nearest future scientists will invent how to do it), we have no power over these senses. However, what we can do, is substitute these senses with a very powerful one – sight. Sight needs beautiful imagery. And the best way to showcase beautiful imagery is create a website for a restaurant.
What are other reasons for creating a website? The first one was already mentioned – it’s showcasing beautiful pictures. If presented properly, a picture of fresh salad, crispy and covered with chopped greenery, or juicy meat, roasted or baked in spices, can evoke a viewer’s hunger: his memory will bring up the taste ans smell this dish may have. The miracle of human perception is that we actually almost-feel the taste and smell of something when we see it in a beautiful picture. Secondly, a website will show your active and potential customers your working hours and location. Apart from that, they will always be able to book a table, order delivery or take-away if you have this service.
Too much depend on the website design and functionality not to pay proper attention to it, that’s why choosing a template for a website should be chosen especially thoroughly.
