Mobile Compatibility

The rise of mobile devices has been one of the most decisive changes on the internet. These days, no website can do well without being mobile-friendly. By now, mobile users represent more than half of all internet traffic and also make up the majority of all search queries. For that reason, there is no way around catering to this user group. Plus, Google now punishes you in the search results if you don't have a mobile-optimized version of your site. That 's why mobile compatibility testing is essential for a WordPress theme.

We choose the "Italian Cusine" demo of the Grand Restaurant theme for review. It looks very decent and elegant in white and gold colors with a black background. All the page components are well placed. We haven't seen any severe issue except the parallax effect doesn't work on mobile devices, and because of it scrolling through the homepage gave a glitchy feel. We have visited different pages, and we get the touch of smoothness everywhere.

To better ensure that we tested the demo through Google's mobile compatibility test, and the result turned out that it's a mobile-friendly theme.

Design Review

The design of a website is the first thing noticed by a visitor. Your site’s design is defined by its theme. You know, there will never be a second chance to make the first impression. So, it’s imperative to choose the relevant theme for your site. An exemplary theme should have stable and straightforward navigation options, a trim interface, and a favorable back-end panel so that both the user and the administrator could work with it without nuisance. Following this concept, we will review the design of this theme.

First comes the beauty of it. The Italian cuisine demo is very nicely decorated. A few sliding images with catchy text could further enhance the beauty of the theme in the header section. The hover effect on different options and the parallax effect looks engaging enough. The theme has six different blog templates, three menu layout designs with four contact layout, and the list goes on. The Grand Restaurant has Keynote app-like interface with live preview so anyone can create a beautiful page easily. This Content Builder includes both Live Mode and Classic Mode. Also, this theme has a full-screen gallery system along with multiple color schemes.

Undoubtedly the developers have carefully crafted the theme so that it can be applied appropriately to all restaurant-related tasks.

Speed Test Review

Anyone who has ever left a website because it was failing to load - should understand the importance of page load speed. Imagine this is your website, and a potential customer is so tired of waiting to see the information they want that they just give up and hit the "back" button. It is is a common scenario. Beyond losing potential site visitors, page load speed is now a massive factor in ranking a website on the search engines. In short, if your site isn't cutting the mustard when it comes to popping up on the screen in a reasonable amount of time (think seconds), you're likely to rank lower in the search results.

We have checked the full page loading speed of the Grand Restaurant of GTmetrix, and the result is decent enough. It scored 76 out of 100, and the page weight is 1.91MB. It took 2.5 seconds for complete loading, where an ideal timing is 3 seconds. Do you know why the score went down despite everything being fine? Because the page has some unsealed images and some javascript that needs modification. No need to worry. Because the theme is provided with two plugins, respectively - W3 total cache and WP super cache, these will help to boost the speed of your website.

SEO Review

SEO is one of the most misinterpreted and confusing terms in the modern marketing mix. There is no doubt that it is not easy to optimize a website for a beginner. These days, you must have excellent research, quick thinking, and a keen eye to get your website on top rankings.

We tested SEO capability of the Grand Restaurant theme on SEO site checkup, And the score is 67/100, not bad at all. There are no meta description tags, keywords, heading tags, robots.txt file, a sitemap file, image Alt tags, Google Analytics script included with the demo. Also, the theme is using inline CSS, which needs modification along with some javascript. Apart from these issues mentioned above, everything is perfect. You might be thinking that resolving this problem is tough work, but RELAX! You can easily blow these issues away by using the Yoast SEO plugin that comes with the theme package.

Customer Support Review

Customer Support plays a hugely positive role in any type of business. Delivering excellent customer service can help you build trust and loyalty quicker than if you offer standard service. It also helps you to build up a positive reputation among your competitors.

By observing the comments section, we have seen that the authors are very active and consistently serving the customer's inquiries.

Customers also appreciate the theme for its design quality, code quality, and customer support. This theme has a 4.66 rating score on average.

Supported Plugins

We have mentioned earlier that Grand Restaurant is a WooCommerce theme. This theme is WPML supported and also integrated with premium Slider revolution plugin, Contact Form 7, Mailchimp, W3 total cache, Yoast SEO, and WP super cache.

Summarize

Grand Restaurant is a great theme, and it will be quite a good projector for your online business identity. It is an SEO friendly theme that supports responsive layout, so it looks great on all devices. If you are looking for a combo pack of all the significant elements that a WordPress theme should have at a regular price, you should go for this theme.
