by Andrea Trujillo, Jorge Vera
International Journal of Leisure and Tourism Marketing (IJLTM), Vol. 1, No. 3, 2010

Abstract: Service quality is composed of several different factors depending on the type of service and the cultural context being analysed. From there, this investigation has, as its main objective to define the service quality in the context of Mexican restaurants from a client standpoint. Through research, the principal factors related to the service quality in restaurants were identified followed by profound interviews with managers and clients to support research findings and to address topics not studied before. As a result, 27 variables were identified and grouped according to their similarity into six different dimensions. These variables will serve as a starting point in the development of a measuring tool of service quality in restaurants.
