Online booking site OpenTable has released its inaugural list of top 100 restaurants across Canada, a country that’s been snubbed by the Michelin guide and the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list.
Following Toronto and Montreal, Vancouver nabbed 10 spots, and Edmonton 6 spots.
TOP 10 MOST BEAUTIFUL RESTAURANTS IN THE WORLD
Overall, Ontario emerged the provincial leader with 38 addresses “…where creativity, consitency and hospitality meet at every meal,” followed by Quebec (21), British Columbia (19) and Alberta (15).
Interestingly, the results show that French cuisine was the most popular choice among Canadian diners, followed closely by Italian fare. Other cuisines represented include Japanese, Mediterranean, Syrian and Turkish.
Canadian diners are also fans of dining at wineries, which made up 20 percent of the top 100 list, including Quails’ Gate Estate Winery, Peller Estates Winery Restaurant and Trius Winery Restaurant, says OpenTable.
To compile the index, which was published in alphabetical order, OpenTable collected 275,000 reviews from February 1, 2014 to January 31, 2015 and looked at the restaurant’s average rating in the “overall” category.
