TripAdvisor has crowned its picks for the best restaurants in the world. No special committee of experts doles out these awards. Instead, these picks are based on reviews from real TripAdvisor users.
TripAdvisor gathered the most highly recommended restaurants in the world and sorted them into six categories: Fine Dining, Everyday Eats, Quick Bites, Date Night Restaurants, Hidden Gems, and Picture-Perfect restaurants. The restaurant awards are part of the company’s Travelers’ Choice Awards, which also recently awarded the TripAdvisor best hotels of 2022.
Restaurants in every continent except Antarctica were awarded, and can be found in countries like Peru, New Zealand, Brazil, and Egypt. Travelers often plan itineraries around where and what they want to eat on vacation. According to TripAdvisor, users of the platform revealed that “food is the most exciting component of their trip.”
Of course, if you’re planning a trip where eating at restaurants and enjoying the local cuisine will be a central facet of your itinerary, having easily accessible recommendations close at hand makes planning far easier. But even if you’re not someone who enjoys dining out every night of vacation, changed plans or unexpected diversions in your route often necessitate looking up a last minute restaurant recommendation. In both cases, it’s handy to have TripAdvisors restaurant lists on standby.
