Yayy enthusiasm! Just give me time, I've got lots of improvements planned, but want to keep adding them carefully step by step, not rush and stumble... If you've got the time/interest, we could grab a pint somewhere one of these days and discuss potential technical solutions? (just email tina(at)eat.fi) Or just wait..
Menus are up to the restaurants to add. I can't copy stuff off their sites without permission, and they get all nervous when I ask for permission. They already have a text field where they can put their menus, and some of them have used it, but I think a lot are still waiting to see what the public response is/how popular this site will be before they really start adding their info. Once I get decent visitor statistics I can show them, or if customers who have found them through eat.fi encourage them to be more active, I think this will improve.
Average price is something I'd really like your suggestions about. I've been thinking about this, but haven't come up with a solution that is clear enough. How would average price be determined? With or without wine/alcohol? What is considered a full dinner? What if the price of entrees ranges from 8 euros to 30 in one restaurant, depending on what you order? (pasta or lobster?)
Richard: I'll add the dual language request to my list.
