TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel review company, acquired French site LaFourchette for $140 million last month. LaFourchette is one of the leading Internet and mobile restaurant reservation systems in Europe, with over 12,000 participating restaurants. In a similar move this month, Priceline, the world’s biggest online travel agency by revenues, acquired North America’s leading restaurant reservation service, OpenTable, for $2.6 billion.
