Tokimeki Restaurant☆☆☆ (ときめきレストラン☆☆☆, also abbreviated as TokiResu) is a social game spin-off based on the Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side series. Developed by Konami's LovePlus Productions department, its licensing and distributing rights were transferred to Koei-Tecmo on August 7, 2014.
Akari Uchida is the game's senior producer and one of its screenwriters. The character designs and event illustrations were done by Makoto Senzaki. Live 2D animation is used to make each of the character stills more natural.
Players take control of a newly-hired chef working at a small restaurant in Habataki City. There, she meets several male idols who cohabit near the establishment and happen to be regulars themselves. The owner gives her the task of managing the restaurant's business while forming a romantic bond with each of the six idols. Although the game allows players to strongly focus on either cooking or socializing, a balance of both is necessary in order to unlock new content.
To attract customers, players must select a dish and prepare it using the oven. Stamina points dictate how much food can be made for one or more servings; it takes 10 minutes to restore lost stamina by increments of 10, though other methods of replenishing them are available. Cooking earns experience points used for raising rank level. A higher rank results in more energy, so leveling up is essential to prolong gameplay time. While the maximum amount of stamina points are capped at 300, the replenishing effects of leveling up still remain.
Recipes are divided into 6 categories: Japanese, Western, Chinese, beverages, raw ingredients, and miscellaneous cuisines. The rarity of a recipe also determines stamina cost and gourmet value. Another important characteristic for every dish is quality level which increases as players cook them repeatedly; it also elevates the food's selling price, resulting in more profit for the restaurant.
Up to 30 of the same dish can be made, though players may substitute them for something else if they wish. The amount of display table available also affects how many food items can be sent out. Changing the restaurant's layout, watching the Tokimeki Channel, or returning to the main title will cause all customers to disappear, but their meals will automatically be paid for; this may cause players to miss out on heart events or other bonuses.
Aside from cooking, there must be more than enough chairs and tables to accommodate the amount of patrons coming in. Lack of space, slow service, or dissatisfaction with the menu has a detrimental effect on a restaurant's reputation which can be seen on the top right portion of the screen; a smile means more customers while a frown indicates the opposite result. Beginners may find it prudent to start out slow before working at a brisk but comfortable pace.
After finishing their meal, customers will pay the bill with "rich" coins. These are used for purchasing new furniture, expanding the restaurant's size, or obtaining idol merchandise. If a customer is very satisfied with the service, he or she may hand out gifts that contain items, recover stamina points, or trigger Fever Mode. When players undergo Fever Mode, they cook faster and consume half of the stamina needed for any dish, making it a cost-effective method for mastering difficult recipes. More customers may arrive during this state, though it also causes the effects to fade in turn. To further exploit Fever Mode's benefits, it is highly recommended to stay near the oven when it occurs or pause the game to regain more stamina.
Every now and then, one or two idols will appear as customers and order a meal; they are more likely to visit if any of their favorite dishes have been prepared. Depending on their mood and response to the service, a heart icon may pop above them. Tapping the icon triggers an event scene which raises their affection towards the protagonist by 1 heart; doing so costs 5 stamina points. Obtaining all 5 hearts for a particular character will make them eligible for Skinship Mode, a mini-game where players can be intimate with their current love interest. Hitting pink hearts raises his intimacy level while coming into contact with blue hearts reduces it. Should 3 or more blue hearts be touched, the Skinship will end in failure. By succeeding, winners will receive 25 stamina points and activate Fever Mode. Note that an idol's heart level resets to zero once Skinship Mode is over or if players neglect to use it within 24 hours.
Quests are objectives that unlock new recipes and furniture if completed. They mostly entail practicing different recipes or serving a specified amount of dishes. Players may view the quest bulletin at anytime by tapping the owner or using the menu option. Other than normal quests, there are three other types to watch out for.
- Daily Quests - Quests that routinely change. Almost similar to normal quests.
- Time-Limited Quests - Quests held to commemorate special occasions. Only lasts for several days.
- Challenge Quests - Quests that challenge players to complete a given task within a time limit.
- Idol Quests - Quests obtained from heart events. Players are given unclear hints to fulfill them.

By using the layout feature, players can edit the restaurant's interior design anyway they want.

The lottery enables players to collect random recipes and idol merchandise using coins or jewels. Time-limited items are also unlocked through this feature, so saving jewels and makeover tickets is necessary to acquire them.
Players may use this function to view other restaurants or visit those belonging to their friends. The purpose of entering another's restaurant is to gain stamina by eating one of their current dishes. Once this is done, players must wait until the next day to dine there again.
To befriend another player, simply touch their avatar and request for a friend add or accept their sign of friendship if vice versa. Raising rank level increases the amount of friends one can have.
