Yelp has announced it’s acquiring French online review portal Cityvox, as it looks to gain a bigger foothold in France.

Today’s news comes just a few days after Yelp snapped up Germany’s Restaurant-Kritik, and further confirms its ambitions in the European market. Cityvox specializes in restaurants and nightlife reviews specifically, covering clubs and cinemas to local brasseries.

Yelp says it’s integrating Cityvox’s reviews and photos into its own platform, though it hasn’t indicated what will become of Cityvox as a standalone entity.
