Diner’s Delight is a dining club, where members (free membership) enjoy discounts of up to 25% (at least 10% then 5%) from a list of (currently) 35 restaurants (currently) in the Western Cape (South Africa) – soon to be expanded (according to the web site).
See here for the list of restaurants along with their menus.
In return, you need to complete a short survey (16 multiple choice +1 other) of your dining experience the following day (or at the latest, before you make your next booking).
This information is then passed back to the restaurant, and is used to help improve your dining experience. Diners Delight also gives its members recommendations on new restaurants to try, based on their previous dining experiences.
Once you’ve registered, you can immediately login and book for a restaurant (up to 7 days in advance). They will then make the actual booking at the restaurant (to let them know the discount that’s applicable) and then will send you an email within 15 minutes. If the restaurant is fully booked then a Diners Delight restaurant advisor will call you back to make an alternative arrangement.
If you want to book at short notice, then make a call (+27 21 481 7600, or cell: +27 82 337 0962) – they need only 30 minutes notice to book your table.
Here’s what the booking form looks like (after selecting the restaurant that you want to go to):
Some restaurants prefer different discount structures that varies depending on the day & time:
You can enjoy up to 4 discounted meals per restaurant (as long as the questionnaire is filled in), and the discount will be applied to your entire bill, regardless of how many people are dining with you. Thereafter you will be entitled to a flat 5% discount at that restaurant for the remainder of the year.
After 12 months, the discount cycle is refreshed, and you can once again enjoy the escalating discounts.
Now to pick a restaurant, and take advantage – I love Doppio Zero at Mandela Square and I see that they’re on the list and offer a 10% discount for the first visit – whoopppeee!
