  • Summary: Starting with nothing except some cash and a passion for food, build a restaurant from the bottom up - hire waiters, decorate, even cook the meals! Buy, build, outsell and underprice your competition. Will you use your culinary wizardry to out-cook chefs? What tactics and strategies will you employ to buy out the competition? You decide. With a combination of business strategy and role-playing game styles plus a free-form sandbox game mode, three huge cities, and over 30 playable chefs and a host of locations to travel to, Restaurant Empire is an epicurean delight of gastronomic proportions!

  1. Despite a slightly flawed interface and presentation, provides an enjoyable and deep strategy experience.
  2. If you're new to immensely detailed simulation games, Restaurant Empire might be frustrating, but it's very accessible, since you can lower the difficulty until you get the hang of it. [July 2003, p.80]
  3. A nice little sim, with only a few flaws keeping it from reaching that higher echelon of sim titles.
  4. Despite its minor flaws, RE successfully combines the excitement of the restaurant biz with the deep number-crunching of a dedicated business sim. [July 2003, p.81]
  5. 78
    It offers a fresh approach to the economic simulation market. It's not stretching things too far to think of Restaurant Empire as the long-awaited but still unannounced workplace expansion for "The Sims."
  6. Once things are set in motion, there's not much to do aside from the occasional tweak. [June 2003, p.85]
