Vincent markets itself as a pizza shop template, but I don’t see any reason it couldn’t work for nearly any sort of restaurant. Vincent’s got a nice design, though through the inclusion of Visual Composer, you don’t need to be content with any of the pre-made designs that are included, you can create something that precisely fits what you want your site to look like.
Vincent has the contact information up to, right where you want it. (Many sites overlook that factor, but most visitors really just want to see your menu and location/store hours.) This theme is highly visual, with lots of places to put high quality images that really help sell your products. Speaking of selling products, Vincent is WooCommerce ready, so if you want to sell merch or sauces, something like that, you can easily set up an online shop too.
Vincent is mobile friendly too, which is increasingly important, since so many folks may be looking for a place to eat while browsing on a handheld device. All in all, Vincent is a really solid option for any kind of restaurant.
Looking for a WordPress theme for a steak house or bar and grill? Well, The Butcher is a fantastic option for any restaurant that wants a bold, masculine style website with clear navigation and outstanding features. The Butcher calls itself a theme that was ‘designed for meat lovers’ and I think they’re right about that. There are four basic premade designs, one called Plucked Chicken, one called Burger Bomb, there’s Street Food and then, of course, the classic layout pictured above. The Butcher is fully responsive with a professional and clean design, coded with the W3C school standards and it rates highly on themecheck.org too. Compatible with Visual Composer and WooCommerce, this theme uses the Redux framework to give you a lot of options for customization.
