Top 10 Restaurants Around the World

Can you guess what are the top 10 restaurants around the world?

A panel comprised of 1,500 food experts, chefs and critics picked the final 50 top restaurants around the globe. Most restaurants like Gaggan in Thailand, Clove Club in London, Narisawa in Tokyo, and Alinea in Chicago are regulars on the list. But this year there was a surprise winner. Can you guess which restaurant is number one?


The following are the world’s 10 best restaurants:

10 Steirereck (Vienna, Austria)

Mugaritz (San Sebastián, Spain)

Maido (Lima, Peru)

Gaggan (Bangkok, Thailand)

Asador Etxebarri (Bizkaia, Spain)

Central Restaurante (Lima, Peru)

Mirazur (Menton, France)

El Celler de Can Roca (Girona, Spain)

Osteria Francescana (Modena, Italy)

Eleven Madison Park (New York, NY, U.S.A.)

This year  Eleven Madison Park in New York City knocked Osteria Francescana off the top spot. This restaurant will customize a guest’s experience by googling them in advance, provide tours of the kitchen in between courses, and pair wines with each dish depending on the individual diner’s tastes. The restaurant’s in-house jars of granola, made for guests to take home with them, are great. One Condé Nast Traveler writer described an evening spent at Eleven Maddison Park as “the kind of meal you hope to have at least once in your life.”

I love trying out new restaurants and cafes around the world. Which is your favorite in the world’s top 10 best restaurants list?

    While they’re not fancy, my husband and I really love small town cafes. In fact, here in Iowa, every year the Cattlemen host a contest to pick the best burger. After they publish the top ten list, we try to visit them all throughout the year. Surprisingly, bowling alleys are nominated a lot! And have some seriously great food x

    Wow not a single London restaurant in the top 10 that’s a shame. I go to a range of London restaurants and there are some lovely ones.

    Gosh I’m surprised that a French restaurant isn’t on the list. Interesting that Peru cropped up several times. I would love to sample some Peruvian food sometime. Spain also appeared several times and I must say I’ve never been a huge fan of Spanish food.

    Osteria is on my bucket list! I watch Chef’s table and Mossimo is one of my absolute favorites! He has such a wonderful personality.

    I am so happy that Eleven Madison park received this accolade! I ate there in 2006 for my birthday and still remember that meal. Last year, a decade later, I ate at Noma in Copenhagen and that meal was unbelievably wonderful. It’s one of those meals you eat at and remember for a Long time
