Sortir Dîner is a premium restaurant guide for Switzerland (available in French only at the moment) providing the description and directions of the finest restaurants around. The contents of the application are taken from the guide “Le Petit Suisse à Table”, and features over 400 restaurants in Switzerland.

From the editorial in the edition of today of the newspaper Le Temps:

La Suisse recèle des trésors gastronomiques souvent méconnus. Sortir Dîner est le nouveau moyen efficace de les atteindre. Cette application pour iPhone et iPad, proposée par Le Temps, donne accès à une version électronique du guide de référence Le Petit Suisse à table. Quatre cents tables en Suisse romande, en Suisse alémanique et au Tessin y sont répertoriées. La recherche d’un restaurant est aisée: elle se fait par le nom de l’établissement, par le canton et la ville, par spécialité, par proximité, par cartographie ou encore par mot clé. Développée en collaboration avec les Editions Texto, Sortir Dîner est téléchargeable sur iTunes/AppStore ou sur le site letemps.ch/application. D’une valeur de 12,50 francs, Sortir Dîner est mise gracieusement à disposition des abonnés du Temps qui sont invités, au moment du téléchargement, à utiliser leur nom d’utilisateur et leur mot de passe.
