The award-winning French restaurant Retro Bistrot in Teddington has launched its brand new app for mobiles which allows customers to keep up-to-date with special offers, check the menu and book whilst on the move.

The app also includes a virtual loyalty card. Customers simple present the app on their mobile to the staff when paying to have it virtually "stamped".  With the current offer, once regular customers have bough 5 meals they get their sixth half price.

"We're loving our new technical toy!" exclaims Vincent Gerbeau, proprietor and maitre d' of the Retro. It's such a simple way for customers to see what we offer, where we are and to book with us. We particularly love the virtual loyalty card. We have a fantastic loyal customer base and it's a great opportunity to reward that loyalty."

The app is powered by Mippin using their Appsme product (appsme.com)   and is run by Teddington local Nick Barnett.

Nick Barnett CEO of Mippin and Appsme says, "The Retro is a stylish and popular local restaurant and we enjoyed working with them to design an app relevant to their business.  Offering a mobile app to your customers puts your business at the forefront of their minds and - what's better - all the necessary details like location and deals right in their hands".

Frenchman Vincent was heard to say that he "eez very 'appy with the app"… (ouch!)...

The Retro Bistrot won the Good Food Guide London Restaurant of the Year in 2012, has two AA rosettes and a Michelin Two Forks. They also recently won Highly Commended Awards in the local Time & Leisure Food and Drinks Awards for both Best Service and Overall Restaurant of the Year 2013.

Mippin is an agile and dynamic mobile application and content company. They build world-leading app-creation platforms & multi-award winning apps. Mippin are winners in two major developer competitions - one from Nokia and another from Google (their Android Developer Challenge).

The Retro Bistrot app can be downloaded from: retrobistrot.appsme.com
