|Europe’s largest online reservation service
Bookatable (formerly Livebookings), with customers, partners, and employees in 23 countries, is Europe’s largest online marketing and reservations service for the restaurant industry. The company works with restaurants such as Gordon Ramsay Holdings, Tantris, East, Grill, Mathias Dahlgren Matbaren, Mavrommatis, and Pedro Larumbe to enable them to secure and manage table reservations online.
Through the The Bookatable Network, the company also provides restaurateurs access to customers that would otherwise be difficult to reach. The network consists of over 300 local, national, and international websites like lastminute.com, Ticketmaster, Yell.com, which collectively reach over 200 million potential diners. Although Bookatable has grown rapidly since it was founded, there is still an enormous growth potential in Europe and beyond: Only a minority of restaurants are currently using online reservation tools. Such a growth potential, unique technology, and an experienced management team convinced Wellington Partners to lead a $16 million financing round in September 2009.
End of 2015 French tire company Michelin, also known for its leading travel, hotel and restaurant guides, has acquired London-based company Bookatable, which enables people to book restaurants online in the UK and other parts of Europe.
