Will eating out ever be the same again?

Along with restaurants all around the world, Mozaik Bahçe had to close its doors due to the novel coronavirus. As the measures are eased, those same restaurants are starting to reopen – with some differences to pre-coronavirus dining.

Mozaik Bahçe has reviewed how they will serve their customers, taking into consideration and implementing the new measures, and they re- opened on 10 June.

What changes can you expect to see at Mozaik Bahçe?

Tables and chairs have been moved around to accommodate social distancing regulations – they have to be 1.5m apart. This meant losing five tables.

In the past, food safety has been the prime concern for restaurants but now they also need a robust sanitation program in place.

Tables and chairs are disinfected when guests leave and before the next guests are seated. Cleaning and disinfecting is carried out in all areas daily and professional cleaning and disinfecting is carried out twice weekly. This also includes insect control for mosquitos. It’s worth noting that the twice-weekly professional treatment is the restaurant’s normal routine.

All guests have their temperatures taken before entering the restaurant. Anyone with a temperature of 38 degrees or over cannot enter the restaurant and is advised to seek medical advice. Staff temperatures are also checked as they arrive for work.

There is a hand sanitizer station at the entrance to the restaurant and cologne is available on all tables. Guests MUST sanitise their hands on arrival and it is recommended that hands are sanitised at regular intervals.

Guests MUST wear a mask. Masks can be removed whilst guests are eating and drinking but MUST be worn when leaving the table and moving around the restaurant.

Staff MUST wear masks at all times and wash their hands regularly.
