The travel community introduced the restaurant tool following a survey of 700 TripAdvisor travellers which revealed 45% of those Britons have eaten out an average of three times over the past month.
Next month, the TripAdvisor restaurant site will link to online reservation site toptable.co.uk so that users can book a meal at more than 10,000 restaurants in the U.S. and Europe.
TripAdvisor offers dynamic maps showing where restaurants are located and links to get directions.
iPhone users can download TripAdvisor's Local Picks restaurant finder.
The site features more than two million reviews and ratings on nearly 500,000 restaurants, with users able to search restaurants by price, cuisine, and type of restaurant.
According to TripAdvisor's survey, Italian is the nation's top choice when dining out, favoured by 25% of Britons. A further 19% of diners say their favourite cuisine is Indian, 14% love traditional British fare and 10% choose Chinese.
