How to List Your Restaurant on Tripadvisor

Listing your restaurant is the first step toward using Tripadvisor as a marketing channel for your business. It only takes minutes!

Welcome to One of the World’s Largest Restaurant Sites*

With 4.9 million restaurants and counting*, Tripadvisor sees millions of travelers every month to research and plan their perfect trip. But did you know that Tripadvisor is used by locals, too? Over 200 million people on average search for restaurants on Tripadvisor each month.** And in a recent survey, an average of 86% of respondents told us they have opted to dine at a restaurant as a result of a Tripadvisor ranking, review, rating or award.

Listing your restaurant is the first step toward using Tripadvisor to spread the word about your business. Once your restaurant is listed and you register as the owner or manager, you’ll be able to upload photos, update your details like restaurant hours, and respond to reviews — all for free.

Check If You’re Already Listed

Chances are, you’re already listed on Tripadvisor. You can check for your restaurant here by searching the name in the search box. Select your restaurant from the dropdown and click the “Claim Your Business” button to start managing your listing.

How to List Your Restaurant on Tripadvisor

To get started, head to Note that to list your restaurant on Tripadvisor, it must be open for business. You’ll need to have basic information like your restaurant’s address and contact information handy to complete your registration. You’ll also have the opportunity to indicate the main types of cuisines you offer with a photo and a short description of your restaurant. If you have any questions, you can see our full restaurant listing guidelines here.

Here are some quick tips when it comes to creating your listing:

  • When you add your email address, be sure to use the email address associated with the restaurant, not your personal email address.
  • For your restaurant address, use the exact zip code for where your restaurant is physically located. It seems obvious, but it can get tricky with state and city lines, so it’s worth double checking.
  • Feel free to add directions or tips to help diners find you, such as “near the statue of St. Paul” in the “Additional address information” section to help diners find your restaurant.
  • Use the map location to drop a pin where your restaurant is located so diners can find your restaurant.
  • For the “Description of your restaurant” section, add a short description of what your restaurant is all about. This is a good place to use your mission statement, “about us” statement, or anything else already on your website.

Once you’ve filled out all of the fields, click the green “Submit” button. Once you click “Submit”, our team will verify your details and your restaurant should be on the website in about 3-5 business days.
