      These currently exist as tags that you can search for, either in the universal search field at the top right of every page, or in the search bar above the map, keyword section, all the way on the right. The problem with adding them to the category menu is that that menu ends up growing enormous, and you'd often end up with zero results when choosing something too specific.

        We’d like to know from people in wheelchairs, what counts as wheelchair friendly? Is it enough if there’s space between tables and no stairs, or is a wheelchair-accessible bathroom also an absolute requirement? We are wondering because we are considering whether wheelchair-accessible and pram-accessible could be combined. If a wheelchair accessible bathroom is necessary, then they cannot be.

        @Petri Heh. Fair point! In that case, it may make sense to begin with the question whether or not the restaurant has a wheelchair-accessible toilet. Is there a register of those somewhere, I wonder?

        At the moment we have integrated Google Street View so you can at least see the outside of the place/what the entrance is like/how big it seems, etc. How much of a help is this?

          Do you guys have examples of vegan-friendly restaurants? eg. are there enough for a category to be of use?

            Osaatteko sanoa suunnilleen, montako koiraystävällistä ruokaravintolaa tällä hetkellä on? (muistakaa, että ainoastaan alkoholia tarjoavat paikat eivät löydy Eat.fi:stä)

            Jos tehdään kategoria, 1. sen alta pitää löytyä monta ravintolaa, ja 2. pitää olla aika selvää, kuuluuko paikka tuohon kategoriaan tai ei. Jos siihen ei voi luottaa, kukaan ei sitä enää käytä sen ensimmäisen pettymyksen jälkeen. Eli jos ravintola on koiraystävällinen, sen pitää olla 99% ajasta niin. Tällä hetkella vaikuttaa siltä, että ravintolat eivät vielä ota selkeää kantaa tähän asiaan, joka hankaloittaa selkeän kategorian tekemistä.

              We're working on a solution to this!

                As a concept this is a good idea, however how would you describe this label in a word or two? Would it be enough to just have “Special-diet-friendly” or would each diet need its own category?

                If you voted for this, please comment on the above questions, otherwise figuring out how to implement this feature will be very difficult.

                eat adminAdmineat admin (Admin, Eat.fi) commented  · 

                It's important to be ridiculously specific about the description, so that each up/down vote will be about the same thing, so that the category has clear meaning. Is it more important that the restaurant has already marked special diet info on the menus? This would probably leave Fine Dining places out of the picture entirely, because they care a lot about their menu design and usually don't add extra markings. Or that they're willing/able to change recipes if need be? Cheaper places that have all food from a central kitchen can't change recipes, but often they have meals on the menu for special diet requirements already. Can you brainstorm a single short sentence that would cover all of that sufficiently so that when you chose a restaurant in that category you could be confident that you could eat there?

                There are four potential elements to special-diet friendly:

                - Attitude-- WILLINGNESS to be flexible with recipes
                - Flexibility -- the kitchen CAN be flexible, because all food is made from scratch
                - Ability-- the kitchen keeps certain ingredients separate to prevent contamination for allergics
                - Menu design -- the menu shows special diet info

                Second, what are the major special diet categories?
                Celiac disease -- gluten free
                Allergies -- varied
                What else?

                      We've had some trouble with some restaurants not wanting to be called Fine Dining, even though their customers would like to call them that because their quality of service and food is so high. Apparently "Fine Dining" carries a stigma of stuffiness and expense. So we're considering removing "Fine Dining" as a standard category, and replacing it with a voted-on "special" category, "Finer Dining".
