As the importance of food in tourism has increased, tourists` food consumption should be shed light on. The purpose of this study was to compare differences on traveler`s usage of restaurant information sources, the importance of restaurant selection attributes, and trip characteristics based on previous destination experience and pre-planning restaurant before departure. A total of 339 persons who had travel experience in the last 6 months participated through on-line survey. One-way ANOVA was used to identify the differences among four groups (G1; Tourists who had pre-destination experience and pre-planning restaurant, G2; Tourist who had pre-destination experience, but didn`t have pre-planning restaurant, G3; Tourist who didn`t have pre-destination experience, but had pre-planning restaurant, G4; Tourist who didn`t have pre-destination experience and pre-planning restaurant). The results showed travelers who pre-planned restaurant choice spent more travel and dining-out expenses and tended to search information using prior experience and words from friend/family, while travelers who did not plan restaurant choice before departure tended to use signboard to search restaurants during travel.
