Hope you’re hungry!
You already know that Limely has a love for all things surrounding web design and content perfection, but did you know that we also LOVE good food. So, every time we get the pleasure to create a fabulous restaurant site, we revel amongst detailed menus, food images and mouth-watering content.
Because we’re so generous (and a little bit hungry), we thought we’d show you our list of the UK top 20 inspirational restaurant website designs we just can’t get enough of in terms of design, layout and performance. Bon Appétit!
A restaurant that is currently taking over the UK and winning the hearts of foodies everywhere, Mowgli Street Food certainly wins us over with clear images, a delicious layout and a couple of appearances of their signature Monkey icon; it all paints a great picture of what their restaurant’s all about. Simple, yet effective.
2. Chef’s Table
Found at number two in the Top 50 Best Restaurants in the UK, Chester’s own Chef’s Table impressed us with their images that look good enough to eat, their tidy layout and their clean and crisp designs which effectively represents their high standards.
3. The Fat Duck
Berkshire’s The Fat Duck gives us a fun interactive homepage which is beautifully presented and allows for quirky and unique design. It does all this without taking too much focus off the important bits like the menu.

Liverpool-based fine dining restaurant Roski, utilise an enticing dark mode to draw users into their website, and we’re here for it! The contrasting gold texture and eye-catching logo instantly set the scene for a unique experience and encourage site visitors to book a table.

With an interactive homepage laced with great images that double as the navigation menu, Simon Rogan’s website does well to recreate its vast array of restaurants online. It’s simple, sleek and truly represents the brand.
L’Enclume’s website makes the food the focus, which is what you want for an effective restaurant website. Making its star features the main event, it lets the user in on its quality and standards.

10. Restaurant Story
Beautiful photography is matched with sleek designs to make an effortless site which performs flawlessly and encourages site visitors to book a private dining experience or event.
Definitely one of our firm favourites, just because of how wonderfully weird it is. A restaurant that mixes good food with great art, Sketch brings this to their website which is equipped with layered graphics and a cute game.
Refined, elegant and mysterious. That’s how we’d describe this beautiful website design for the Ikoyi restaurant in London. Simplicity is key to this design as it’s the minimalist style that makes it a strong website. The ‘book a table’ call to action is prominently placed in the sticky header to ensure seamless navigation for users wanting to secure a table reservation and encourages bookings due tot the simple multi-step booking process.
Full to the brim of attitude and rebellion whilst balanced with a touch of elegance and creativity. Site navigation is simplistic which reflects the restaurant’s unfussy nature whilst action-shot photography gives a real sense of the care and passion the team have for the food they serve.
14. Claude Bosi
We’re loving the content on this one – not too much and not too little, it’s just right. As well as presented with a stylish font, which goes with the style that Claude Bosi is presenting.
We love how Wildwood’s website truly reflects the friendly atmosphere within their restaurants. With nifty features such as an interactive menu and streamlined table-booking form, it’s clear to see why this restaurant site made it to our top 16!
16. The Ivy
This esteemed, premium restaurant needed a website that reflected its strong reputation. The beautiful, atmospheric photography paired with a sleek layout and elegant typography has led to a successful, stylish website oozing with sophistication. As any great restaurant website should, the ‘reserve a table’ call to action is very prominent as contrast has been utilised to draw attention to the button.
17. Six By Nico
Creativity, beautiful food and fun photography take centre stage in this restaurant website design. The sleek and minimal layout allow the restaurant’s personality to truly shine and entices users to hit that all important book a table button!
A traditional and welcoming website that reflects the friendly and hearty feel of the Dishoom restaurants, it’s safe to say we love this website *almost* as much as we love the food they serve. The creative design emulates the layout of a traditional newspaper and we love the unique nature of this site!
This website shines a light on the healthy food that sweetgreen offer. A neon accent colour works to guide users to key call-to-actions whilst an elegant website layout tells the story of the brand and truly resonates with users.
Animated typography, high-quality photography and parallax scrolling create an engaging and eye-catching website that makes Adachi stand out from the crowd, and we’re pretty impressed with this unique website design!
