You represent and agree that:

  1. You are able to enter into this Agreement. You have the right, authority, and capacity to enter into the Agreement represented by these Terms and to abide by all of the terms and conditions of these Terms;
  2. If you are accepting these Terms and using the Services on behalf of a company, organization, institution, or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to do so and have the authority to bind such entity to these Terms, in which case the words “you” and “your” as used in these Terms shall refer to such entity.

2.3 Use of the Book

By purchasing the Book, you agree to be bound by the following conditions and restrictions to your use of the Book:

  1. Dining for Two.  You can only use the Book if you are dining with at least one additional person, and at least two people are ordering a main entrée. You are restricted to using more than one Book, or voucher in the Book at a time, even if dining with more than two people. Moreover, the Book cannot be combined with other special offers of the restaurant, or on special occasions such as New Year's Eve, Christmas, or other celebrated holidays.
  2. Reservations.  RDB is an intermediary between you and the restaurants which are represented in the Book, no reservations to, or for a restaurant in the Book can be made through our Services. Use of the Book requires you to inform the restaurant that you are planning on using the Book at the time of reservation, and you are required to physically bring the Book with you to the restaurant; the restaurant is not obliged to accept the Book and therefore the voucher if this condition is not met. The restaurant has the right to limit or refuse the number of guests with the Book on busy days (i.e., Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays), public holidays, or special events. The Book may only be redeemed at the selected restaurants found in the Book (see information regarding the specific location of the Restaurant in the Book).
  3. One Main Entrée.  Each of the selected restaurants in the Book entitles you to one free main entrée from each of the restaurant’s current menus when ordering at least two main entrées, and providing that the discount for the main entrée does not exceed a maximum amount of thirty dollars ($30.00). To be clear, You and/or your guest must purchase at least two main entrées to take advantage of the voucher. The maximum discount for the main entrée is limited to thirty dollars ($30.00). The cheaper of the two main entrées, limited to a maximum discount of thirty dollars ($30.00), will be discounted accordingly. For the purposes of this Agreement, pasta and pizza are also considered main entrées. If a restaurant does not clearly declare its’ dishes as “main entrées” on its menu, you are obligated to confirm with the restaurant prior to ordering what menu items are eligible for the use of the vouchers in the Book. If a restaurant only offers whole meal menus or prix fixe menus, a maximum credit of thirty dollars ($30.00) shall be applied. Depending on the restaurant, the selected restaurants may or may not offer discounts with the Book on lunch menu items as well. Always confirm with the restaurant prior to ordering to avoid any issues with redemption.
  4. Validating the Voucher.  When it is time to pay your bill, and upon proper presentation of the whole authentic Book, the restaurant will place a stamp, autograph, or other signifying mark visible above the respective side of the restaurant in the Book; the voucher shall no longer be valid after the restaurant places such a marker in the Book.
  5. One Year Term.  The Book shall be valid from January 1, 2024 until December 31, 2024. RDB does not assume any responsibility if the restaurants listed in the Book do not maintain their offer due to change of ownership, tenancy, closure, or any force majeure incidents as described below in sections 9, 10 and 11.
  6. Use Restrictions and Limitations.  RDB is solely an intermediary platform. Please note that RDB does not provide, endorse, or guarantee any of the featured restaurants’ product, service, or information.  RDB is not affiliated with the restaurants featured within the Book and is not responsible for their products and/or services. The Services may contain links to other websites or apps that are not maintained by us. Other websites and apps may also reference or link to our Services. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Services, and to read the terms and conditions and privacy policies of each and every website and apps that you visit. We are not responsible for the practices or the content of such other websites and apps.

    Any liability due to, but not limited to, the following are expressly disclaimed: bad experiences in the restaurants, problems with food (for example allergies, incompatibilities, etc.), refusals of reservations, incorrect redemption and cancellation of Book vouchers, closures of restaurants listed in the Book, sale of alcoholic products to minors under 21 years of age and the like. RDB assumes no liability for any of the abovementioned and will not refund any payments nor will RDB replace a lost or stolen Book.

    Furthermore, if a voucher page is ripped, torn or otherwise removed from the Book, that voucher shall be void and made invalid. The same applies if a voucher page is destroyed, altered, or otherwise made different from when first purchased.

    If you receive a brand-new Book from our distributor and the Book is damaged upon arrival, your sole recourse is with the distributor. Do not attempt to contact RDB as it will be unable to remedy your issue.

    If you properly present a voucher at a restaurant, and the restaurant for whatever reason does not honor the voucher, then your sole remedy will be with the restaurant. Although RDB would like to be made aware of these issues through our customer support line, RDB holds no responsibility for the restaurant’s actions and will be unable to remedy your issue.

    Only authentic serialized versions of the Book will be honored.

2.4 Account information

RDB is not, and cannot be found liable for incorrect account information inputted by you.
