Features :

  • Restaurant Tycoon features a gorgeous 3D environment with all the detail players have come to expect from 2D isometric games, completely rendered in real-time.
  • Choose from three cuisines and eight theme restaurants to build on eight culinary capitals stretching from the Pacific to the Atlantic, each with its own set of requirements and gameplay strategies.
  • View your patrons' reactions to your restaurant – from happy diners jerks who are whining about the food and service.
  • Expertly manage your staff: Hire, fire and train waiters, chefs, maitre d'hotels, even the dishwasher. Improve their skills and watch your restaurant ratings increase.
  • Control your restaurant's inventory. Make sure there's a constant supply of ingredients, that your food doesn't spoil, and that suppliers aren't short-changing you.
  • Control chefs and prepare meals for celebrities and political big-wigs, who will grant you favors (provided you can cook!). Choose from any of eight unique playable chefs – all with their own set of abilities, skills and techniques that can and will affect gameplay.
  • Participate in internationally acclaimed cooking contests. Demonstrate to the world your culinary prowess, but be careful: other chefs will stop at nothing to win these competitions, and this means a slew of dirty tricks are available for their own fiendish purposes. (Don't worry, though – you can also slip cockroaches into your competitor's food!)
  • Explore and exploit the restaurant universe - travel to faraway locations such as equatorial Africa and the Middle East searching for exotic ingredients, then use these ingredients to out-cook your competitors in real-world cities such as Paris and New York.
  • Experience all the drama and excitement of running a restaurant without smelling of onions or staining your clothes!
