The challenge

With an ever-changing menu and new events each month, Markt 8 needed a website that was easy to manage and update. Obviously there’s a key position for the events calendar. And in this day and age restaurants also need to offer their customers the option to make reservations online.

The project

Markt 8 offers great food and enjoyable events. They strive for high quality dinner experiences for the general public. Their new modern and unique website tells the story of the restaurant, with images that show the impressive dishes and make your mouth water.

Flexibility is key

There are pre-set blocks for opening hours or for instance the event calendar. But you can also use empty blocks that can be filled in any way you want.

The order and placement of the images are flexible. The user can fully create its own pages without the risk of breaking anything in the website.

The homepage — the experience starts here

Grand cafe Markt 8 is proud of its food. The homepage shows stunning images of mouth-watering dishes. These pictures can be updated in the CMS. After a short introduction, the homepage gives a quick overview of the main themes of the website: the menu, events and opening hours.

Reservation form — customer hospitality

A restaurant website without a reservation form can’t really call itself a modern website. That’s why the reservation form for Markt 8 is accessible on every page.

Reservations are saved in WordPress and directly mailed out to Markt 8. This helps the grand café to quickly act on new reservations and create the perfect customer experience.
