Restaurant booking platforms OpenTable and Quandoo have announced a new strategic partnership which will see the integration of the two global brands.

Table availability will be shared across both platforms in order to give diners the most comprehensive choice of restaurants worldwide.

Quandoo restaurant partners will be available for real-time reservations on the OpenTable platform from now, with OpenTable restaurants to be reservable on Quandoo over the coming months.

Andrea Johnston, chief operating officer for OpenTable, part of Booking Holdings, Inc, said: “This partnership will make each site more comprehensive for diners and restaurant partners will benefit from increased discoverability by being available on both platforms.

“Our mission is to help people experience the world through dining, and by forming this strategic partnership we are able to do this faster and at scale.”

Pierpaolo Zollo, VP business development for Quandoo, part of Recruit Holdings, added: “Our goal has always been to improve accessibility to new culinary experiences, as well as increase availability for our restaurant partners which we will be able to do faster and more seamlessly. Together with OpenTable, we are looking forward to driving both business and industry growth.”

The partnership will bring OpenTable’s offering to more than 56,000 restaurants globally, and Quandoo’s restaurant partners will be increased to over 23,000, with 10,000 restaurants to initially be made available across the two platforms, throughout the UK, Germany, Australia, Italy and Singapore.
