amenity=restaurant is for a generally formal place with sit-down facilities selling full meals served by waiters and often licensed (where allowed) to sell alcoholic drinks.

How to Map

Add a node at the centre of the building and add amenity=restaurant to it. You can name it with name=*. If the whole building is used for this feature and its footprint is present in OSM, you can apply the tags on the area if you prefer.

Optionally, you can further classify it using the cuisine=* tag with a value suitable for your nation's environment and culture. For top class (expensive!) restaurants, this can be cuisine=fine_dining. In many cases, this can be the ethnicity of the food, for example cuisine=thai or the type of food, for example cuisine=steak_house

If the restaurant / the chef has been awarded some award like Michelin stars, you can specify this using the key award:*=*, e.g. in the case of Michelin use award:michelin=*. Do better not use stars=* for this as it is too generic and allows to tag only one award system.
