 Alex, the base is in the basement (as is the kitchen), the somelier office is on the third floor.  they shuttle back and forth between the top and the bottom.  the experience that i have had with the yealink w52p dect, is 20 feet in an open plan office and they start to suck.  they're just crappy it seems.  TGP500 same (maybe 50 feet), the tgp600 says 50 meters and each repeater adds another 50 meters (indoors).   
Since they have ubnt AP-Pro's and chris states that zero handoff is not supported, i think i'm going to have to try to sell them on a dect solution. 

   My Sennheiser DECT headset lets me roam 40m before it degrades. In my case, that's on the other side of of our house, so line-of-sight is completely lost. A repeater would help that.
The limit to DECT that's not to easy to overcome is concurrent calls. Most current consumer-ish/SMB gear is limited to 4 concurrent calls.

  The challenge with DECT is that "range" is relative to a single base
 station/AP versus roaming between base stations/APs. Also: just how much range do you need in a restaurant, unless the restaurant in question is the residence of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum?

 You and I both have Plantronics CSxxx DECT headsets and the range is very impressive. In my case with the CS540, I can straight-up leave the building, on whose third floor my office is situated, go through the parking deck, and take a walk up the road without any degradation.
