How does a widget work?

See your diners process when using Booking Widgets for your restaurant 

Diner clicks on your booking widget

Diners will be asked regular questions when it comes to making a restaurant reservation: day of the booking, hour, number of guests, personal details (name, phone number, email address)

After inputting booking information, diners will then receives a booking confirmation by email or sms.
