Whether you’re bidding on a new business or looking to refurbish your existing premises, the team at ifse are here to add the ‘wow’ factor to your space with our outstanding restaurant design.

As your design and build partner, we work with you to understand your site and uncover key insights through our research and site development plan to ensure we maximise the opportunity for revenue growth and client satisfaction.

By utilising new food service technology, our design team can help improve the speed of service and provide ideas to reduce operational costs.


From the very beginning, we work closely with you, your team, and your guests to understand the available space and your requirements through customer/client interviews, workshops, and observations of the existing setup.


Combine the concept with a truly unique brand visual identity that will create a destination for your customers. Our in-house branding team are involved from the initial discussions to ensure we capture the right vibe.

Space Planning

Using the latest trends, materials and fittings, our design team will find creative and innovative ways to utilize the space available, whilst taking a practical and workable view of your environment.


After the build process, your restaurant is now ready to become a destination for your colleagues, clients and guests. We work with you throughout the launch period and afterwards with support and maintenance to ensure the longevity of finishes and equipment.


With our fully immersive photoreal 3D technology, we bring your restaurant space to life allowing you to understand how the restaurant/cafe design will look and feel.

This includes our industry-leading animated video walkthrough technology that utilizes VR technology to place you into the environment in real-time.
