The World's 50 Best Restaurants In 2018 - Boss Hunting
Start booking.

The World's 50 Best Restaurants in 2018 were announced earlier this week in Bilbao, Spain. Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy, has taken the crown, as the world's best restaurant. What a title! But this isn’t the first time Osteria Francescana has won it, with the restaurant taking their first victory back in 2016.

El Celler de Can Roca followed closely behind in second place, while Mirazur, on the French Riviera, came in third. Last year's winner, Eleven Madison Park, dropped down to fourth place, partly due to its four months closure for renovations.

Melbourne's restaurant Attica, was the only Australian restaurant to make the cut this year. It climbed up from its 2017 ranking of #32 to #20, and even scooped up 'Best Restaurant in Australasia'.

For those who watch Chef’s Table on Netflix, you'll notice the likes of Virgilio Martínez from Central and Vladimir Mukhin from White Rabbit appear in the rankings also.

The list is determined by an academy of over 1000 restaurant experts from all over the world, so you know this list is reliable...
