I guess that it is more a matter of choice than being plain right or wrong.

 

If the speaker see this restaurant as a point in town they will use 'at', if they see it as a place where one goes into they might use 'in'.

 

According to Raymond Murphy in his English Grammar in Use - second edition CUP, page 248:

 

"You can often use in or at with buildings. For example you can eat in a restaurant or at a restaurant."

Wich one is correct or both are correct?
