Book your upmarket discount dinner with CapeTalk promo code on Dineplan app

Get the Dineplan app and book your dinner between 5 and 11 November 2018. Using the CapeTalk promo code secures the special discount.

John explains that this is a four-course meal with matching wines for a total of R350.

The way you get that discount is by getting the Dineplan app and then book your dinner anytime between the 5 and 11 November using the CapeTalk promo code.

Dineplan co-founder Greg Whitfield chats to John about the app.

We generate our income from a monthly fee we charge the restaurants, so the app is completely free to the diners using it.

He says they have some 2000 restaurants on the app.

Restaurants can now load an interactive booking widget on to their website, Facebook page and Google business listing for guests to make quick and easy booking requests online.

It also integrates into the Dineplan mobile app for consumers booking on the go. The widget allows guests to choose the date, time and party size they would like to book for.

Once a requested booking is made on the widget or app, the system automatically notifies the restaurant via SMS and email to respond to the guest timeously.

He says this platform is highly beneficial for restaurants, particularly those still using outdated booking inquiry forms on their websites.

Dineplan founders Martin Rose and Whitfield started the reservation software company in Cape Town in 2011, developing back-end software for restaurants to use as their electronic reservation book.

This would later enable instant bookings to diners via the Dineplan booking widget on restaurant clients’ websites.

In February, the company launched the consumer-based Dineplan app, enabling app users to make instant bookings or request these at thousands of restaurants across South Africa from their mobile phones.
