How to Find the Perfect Restaurant for your Business Meeting

Jan 24, 2020

Business meetings are evolving from being inside a cold boardroom to other venues like a restaurant; where a more relaxed atmosphere accompanied with a hot meal is the preferred route to take. Whether you’re with a client or a business partner, choosing the perfect restaurant is crucial to carrying your formal relations forward and leave a good impression! Consider the following to find the perfect restaurant.

Location

The location of your restaurant will set the tone to how your meeting will eventually pan out. If it’s the first meeting or one where you’re hoping to close a deal with a potential client, choose a location that’s away from the city and with a quaint charm of its own. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city is the most ideal, like in the historic Galle Fort, which will also give you an opportunity to take them on a quick tour post-lunch meeting!

Ambiance

Essentially the most important element once your meeting commences. A fine dining restaurant with impeccable service and an extended meal are the three key factors that you need to look out for. An intimate dining setting will allow you to talk and discuss aspects of your meeting without any interruptions or distractions. Build a rapport and break the ice during the first course, then get to the crux of the meeting with your main course and use dessert to end the meeting.
