Imagine a beautiful restaurant with fantastic food, but people don’t enjoy their time there. It doesn’t make any sense, right? Well, it could be due to poor acoustics making the restaurant a noisy and uncomfortable place to eat.
Hard flat surfaces, such as timber floors, tables, and large plastered walls, all of which are commonly found in restaurants, will contribute to poor restaurant acoustics. These hard surfaces reflect sound and therefore increase and amplify noise levels within the restaurant. It’s a downward spiral that you may have noticed yourself at some point. You’re eating at a noisy restaurant, so you speak up in order to be heard by the people at your table. The problem is that everyone does this, and before you know it, your restaurant is uncomfortably loud, which can spoil the dining experience.
We have a wide range of acoustic solutions on offer, which come in a variety of colours, so we can guarantee one will be ideal for your restaurant. If you’re interested in us helping you to improve your restaurant acoustics, then please feel free to contact us today. One of our expert team will come to survey your restaurant, and then they will make a decision on which of our products will help you improve your restaurant acoustics the most!
What to Expect
We understand that each restaurant is unique, which is why we tailor all of our acoustic solutions to each individual restaurant. Generally, we’ll use one of our soundproofing products (link), such as our Iso-Mount. This will be combined with one of our decorative acoustic finishes, which one depends on the situation.
Our Restaurant Installations
Take a look below at some of the restaurants where we have installed our acoustic solutions. These have helped to improve the restaurant acoustics and reduce the ambient noise for customers and staff alike.
Black Tiles Restaurant
Following a refurbishment using fashionable hard materials, Black Tiles too suffered from poor restaurant acoustics. Owner Tim Yoe contacted Oscar Acoustics and following a free acoustic appraisal 12mm of SonaSpray trowelled fcx was chosen as the acoustic decorative wall and ceiling finish.
“Simply Awesome! It’s created a totally different dining environment. Speech and music are clear and all background clutter noise has gone. The restaurant feels comfortable and somehow warmer.”

When designing Nopi, the owner Noam Bar had a clear vision: plaster smooth ceilings, painted brick and tiled walls, hard table tops and marble floors; poor restaurant acoustics were a certainly.
Whilst wanting Nopi customers to be able to have relaxed, effortless conversations, he also wanted the restaurant acoustics to retain an atmospheric buzz. To achieve this, Oscar Acoustics was able to reduce the depth of the standard finish by half.
Items in favour of Oscar Elite over other systems were:
- Installed by fully trained Oscar operatives
- Speed and ease of installation
- Ease of local repairs
- Application from mobile towers & not a bridge scaffold
- Smooth finish
- Final cost of the installation
The result was exactly as stated in the brief. Clear and effortless speech whist retaining an atmospheric buzz. The owner has since expressed his delight with the restaurant acoustics and the appearance.
