Hey guys, I am trying to find all restaurants inside a city or town like this on overpass turbo:

out qt;

but its result is empty, if I am using the relation :

out geom;
  { color:gray; fill-color:DarkGray; }
out qt;

there is 1 restaurant inside Ararat town alt text

What is the difference between the 2 queries? and how can I show restaurants inside cities or towns? not inside province or state!

Which specific area/province do you wish to search? Your search criteria is ambiguous ('name:en'~"^Ararat") The restaurant you highlight isn't in a town try [place~"town|village|city"]

I chenged query ti this [out:json][timeout:25]; area["ISO3166-1"="AM"]; area(area)[place~"town|village|city"]->.a; area(area.a)['name:en'~"^Ararat"]->.b; node(area.b)["amenity"="restaurant"]; out qt; but my query result is all restaurants inside Ararat province, I just want all restaurant inside Ararat town. @DaveF

I think it depends how the town is defined. If there's a town boundary, then things will be much easier compared to a node. Unless all the restaurants' address have place:city(or town) = ararat specified.

You will need to include ways and relations as object types too.
