Square for Restaurants
Orders made simple with QR code menus
QR codes make it easier to place self-service food orders directly from the menu and make services run faster and more smoothly to improve the experience for both your customers and your staff.
Contactless, in-person ordering experience that increases safety and workflow efficiency.
Free menu templates to create your own custom menu.
Your menu serves a functional purpose but it’s also part of your branding. Square offers a range of functional and attractive templates that you can customise to suit your needs and want, making it easy to create menus that work well and look good.
Accept all major payment types integrated with your QR codes.
Continue the contactless, frictionless experience by integrating the QR codes on your menu with Square Payments. You can even assign individual QR codes to different menus and link them to different areas (e.g. tables), making it really simple to create bills.
Increase efficiency with improved table turn-around times.
Implementing self-service ordering with QR codes and contactless payment through Square can significantly improve your table turn-around times. It can also help to reduce the number of people walking around at any time. Having more clear space can make it easier and quicker for your servers to do their jobs which can help you to turn around tables even faster.
Free up staff to focus on other tasks.
Manually taking orders and payments slowing you down? Automating them frees up your staff for tasks that add value to your business and allows them to efficiently focus on delivering great customer service.

Find out why Australian restaurants choose Square
‘It goes without saying how beautiful Square hardware looks on the counter. It helps when the equipment we use looks just as stunning as the restaurant, right? Not only is it good-looking on the outside, but it’s also functional on the inside.’
Co-owner, No Bones, Byron Bay, NSW
‘We’re a fast-paced QSR model, so we want to be efficient wherever we can. Square has streamlined the way customers order, from pick up, to the kitchen operations - it flows really well.’

‘We can simply open the Square app on our phones and assess the performance across thirty locations. We know which products are working and not working in real-time. This enables us to scale while maintaining the same level of attention to detail we had when we operated just one store.’
Co-owner, Fishbowl, NSW, VIC and QLD
‘It came down to cost for us. Once you’re paying for your fees subscriptions and devices, our old systems were more expensive. We did a bit of research, Square was simple and offered custom rates so it made sense and was more cost efficient to switch.’
Co-owner, T-Bone Brewing Co, TAS
‘The user interface makes it so simple for us and our customers. Prior to Square, we used one of those bank EFTPOS machines with handwritten dockets. Now, we can check our stats at the end of the night just on our handheld device.’
