So glad to have chosen this extension for my client's website. Everything I needed could be accomplished with the native functions. I only had to touch the CSS a little bit and now the Menus, the Table reservations and the Take Out sections are perfectly set up. Well spent money! Thanks e4j!!

After looking through several restaurant extensions that didn't quite meet the guidelines I needed, I am happy to say I found Vik Restaurants!!

I am relieved to find an extension that is easy to use, even for a dabbling developer like myself! The support team was fantastic! They were friendly and answered my questions within a few hours of my message. Really couldn't be more satisfied!!

Bought the vik restaurant extension for a fishrestaurant. Had an issue with installing the module, contacted the E4J 24/7 servicedesk and got an answer right away.
Their engineers were very professional and capable.
After solving the problem it worked perfectly, very user friendly and don't need any payed services anymore like seatme or couverts. It costs a few €'s but it's well worth it.
