Choosing a Restaurant for a Business Event

Written by Neeraj Shresta

restaurant for business eventIf you need to dine and wine with prospective clients or business colleagues at a business lunch or dinner, you should match the venue to the style and purpose of your business function.
Whether you are going to lunch with colleagues, or to a half-yearly review with an employee in a cafe, or maybe a dinner with a very important and influential client, you should really plan ahead and choose the appropriate place for the meeting.

Things to consider and think about when choosing a restaurant in Mauriitius for a buisness event:

  • Budget - The restaurants has to fit your budget 
  • Menu- Ask the restaurants to send you a menu so you can evaluate your options. Choose a restaurant which offers a big variety of choices or traditional favorites (chicken, meat, sea food, fish and vegetarian), where all of your guests will find something according to their taste and preferences.
  • See the place - You better visit the restaurants where you're considering to hold the event. This will enable you to check the background music, the bathrooms, the seating arrangements etc.
  • Location - pick a restaurant that's easy to locate, since getting lost may lead to some tension and delays. Make sure that the restaurant is not far from your office and from the office of the person you are about to meet.
  • Parking - Is there a parking lot or a valet? Consider that sometime finding a parking space can be a serious hassle and a time spender. Particularly for lunch, convenience is the key for maximizing available time.
  • Reservation- Make a reservation before the event. Remember to request a special area of the restaurant that fits your needs, a private booth or banquet hall if you will be a large group.
  • Seating arrangements - set up the seating arrangements ahead of time: facilitate access between key people, pair dining partners strategically and show respect to the top management.
  • A la carte or set menu- Decide whether you'll have a set meal served to all of you or have guests order a la carte. If you're putting together a special menu, you may want to ask clients or business colleagues if they have any food preferences or dislikes (you would not choose a fish and sea food restaurant, if your business date does not like fish and sea food). - Buy now or lose the deal
