Online travel and leisure specialists lastminute.com has launched its very own mobile restaurant booking service. Currently at a beta stage, users of fonefood can search and book over 6,000 restaurants across 12 countries. In conjunction with Google Maps, users can see a host of restaurants close to their location, including everything from cheap and cheerful to more exquisite venues. Descriptions of each restaurant are also given meaning users can make a concerted decision on where to dine. Once a decision has been made, users can book directly on their mobile for free, before receiving a text message confirming the booking.
The service is powered by online restaurant reservations provider, the Livebookings Network, with lastminute.com claiming that fonefood is just the start of many more future mobile offerings. fonefood can be accessed through your mobile at m.lastminute.com/fonefood or by texting "fonefood" to 85959 to get sent the link free of charge (UK only).
