Reservations in a good restaurant can save time and wait
A good restaurant that is popular among the locals will tend to be crowded, especially on evenings, weekends and holidays. If you are planning to go to a good restaurant, then its a good idea to plan ahead and call them for reservations. It's better to call the restaurant and check their reservation policy. A lot of good restaurants require at least 12 hours for reservation and some of them may even make a small charge on your credit card for this service. This can be particularly useful when you are planning to dine out on weekends or holidays when the restaurant is likely to be crowded. It is also convenient as you can skip the long lines waiting for a seat. In short, reservations are ideal before dining in a good restaurant.
A good restaurant should not be too cheap or too expensive
A good restaurant does not always have to be expensive. In fact, one of the characteristics of a good restaurant is a nominal price. Eating outside should not break your bank. You should enjoy the experience of dining in a good restaurant without ever having to regret the expense. At the same time, you should not choose a restaurant that offers exceptionally low price for the food. They may compensate for the low price with lower quality ingredients and an unclean kitchen. So, a good restaurant should have a medium price that is not too high or too low for the food that you order.
