Note that Restaurant Empire II also includes the Campaign from Restaurant Empire I so that is already something quite nice.
Restaurant Empire I is basically an improved Restaurant Empire I that explores some features further. The new campaign is however much more boring and dull and starts to drag out at some point.
It's a nice game with its very own unique charm. Get it on a sale, you won't regret it.

I actually played the first, original Restaurant Empire many years ago, before Steam even existed. I can happily recommend this game to everyone who enjoys tycoon games like this or to people who wanted to own and manage a restaurant in a game before. It has it's issues, though, but nothing major. At least, nothing major happened in my game

I think most have covered gameplay, and yes this game could be made nice with an update and some more features added. But the basic game is fun, not for those that don't like simulation games. It does take quite a while to get the hang of how it all works in the finer details. Once you understand then it becomes easier to manage. The shitbag complaining customers need addressing, as some settings need scaling back. A real restaurant would be broke real quick with half the amount of complaining customers. Aside from that...

To be honest it is not a game you would play continuously, but is good in here are there. For and old game still is pretty good and the price is good. Hopefully the game will get a good overhaul.

Played a lot more on old game on last PC so steam hours don't reflect.

This is a wonderful game for people who love detail management and like to problem solve. Much of the game involve trying to improve various ratings and profitability without being told exactly how to accomplish those tasks. It requires trial and error and critical thinking. That being said it is fun and not too heavy to play.

Not sure why all the negative reviews. The game is what you'd expect from a restaurant themed tycoon game.

I was pleasantly surprised how fun the game was. It is definitely worth a look if you are into tycoon and management games.

Don't be surprised if this game makes you hungry though.
