[cont'd] can be bothered to write something about a place have a bone to pick. Out of every ten restaurants that you look at, nine will have comments like ' the service was poor' or ' how do you undercook a shrimp?' Maybe one bar attendant didn't mix your margarita to your exact specifications. All valid points but personally I would much rather have positive comments rather than isolated negative ones. Cinco works better because the recommendations are put together by regular people - just like you.
You can search for restaurants, bars and clubs near where you are and discover new places to go, based on recommendations from people you know and trust. Even if you don't want to visit a restaurant or bar right now, you can simply save interesting places using the 'must try' feature to act as a reminded for later.
While there are heaps of ratings and review apps on the market they tend to fall into the trap of being completely impersonal. Cinco relies on recommendations from people that you know and people whose taste and judgment you trust. There's been a lot of publicity lately about fraudulent reviews in some review apps that have been put in by the business itself. Cinco doesn't go down that road. Whats more, you won't have to worry about one-off complaints about poor service from random people that you don't know. Next time you want to go out for drinks or a meal...
