Half term is nearly here. If you’re heading out of town or out of the country, you should know two things. 1. toptable is abroad and 2. we have special offers. Let’s take those in turn, shall we?
1. toptable is abroad
In fact, we are so abroad we have more than 2,300 restaurants in thirteen countries, from New York City to Vatican City (okay, fringes) and Stockholm to Marrakech. Each international restaurant offers the same toptable features — photo, 360 tour, map, menus, ratings and reviews from your fellow diners — as the restaurants on the home site, so you can book the best places before you go. Then when you land, you stroll straight past the tourist joints and the queue and into the welcoming arms of your host. As a sweetener, you get top reward points for overseas bookings, just as when you dine through toptable at home.
2. we have special offers
We Britons are made of stern stuff. No matter the pound falling and the euro surging ahead, we’re going to travel by Jove. So toptable’s hundreds of overseas offers come in quite handy these days. Take a look:
Top diner rated Chez Francoise in Paris’ 7th arrondissement has a pair of special offers on this month: bubbly, three courses, wine and coffee for €39 every day for lunch and supper. On Saturday evenings you can expect jazz and on Sunday evenings — how mad is this — unlimited oysters.
Or La Cocotte, specialising in casseroles, in the 18th arrondissement, is luring you in with three courses, two
glasses of house wine and a coffee for €35.
Headed for Lille? Aux Lillois across from the Citadel is a smart and affordable restaurant that attracts a stylish young crowd. The bar area is open until 2am, so you know there’s a bit of a scene there, and the restaurant is offering 40% off food through the end of March.
Zango restaurant in Old Lille is focussed on travel and the great world beyond the French borders with a global menu and smartly exotic decor. They clearly know the international language of great deals as weekday lunch is 40% off food.
And we have hundreds more offers in France to save you money and let you dine like a local.
In Rome, Ambasciata d’Abruzzo restaurant, a popular haunt since 1964, believe it or not, offers the €50 all-inclusive weekday lunch of starter, first course, main, dessert,half
bottle of mineral water and a glass of house wine for €38, a savings of more than 20%.
If you’d like to make an evening of it, the historic Centrale Ristotheatre has been restored with style and a playful modernity and now offers dinner plus a cabaret-style show followed by a DJ and dancing for just €35 (includes a glass of wine). It’s near the Piazza Venezia and it is a fabulous building that’s featured in many Italian films.
We have many more deals and special offers in Rome.

We can’t close this post without mentioning Germany. We have an amazing presence in Germany, with nearly 300 restaurants and many are offering tasty deals. For instance, wow-factor Restaurant Villers in Leipzig with its classic dining room, floor-to-soaring-ceiling windows, chandeliers and verdant views offers a three-course business lunch for an incredibly reasonable €19. The menu is German and International and this is a lovely place.
The Linden Garten is an historic inn in one of Berlin’s leafy southern suburbs with an Italian menu and an international understanding of what makes diners happy. The five course menu every lunch and dinner Tuesday through Sunday is a a very tempting €30.50.
