The list of the 50 best restaurants of the world aims at giving a snapshot of the present culinary scene.

Spanish restaurant El Celler de Can Roca currently tops the list after ousting Rene Redzepi’s restaurant Noma, in Denmark.

Ferran Adria’s elBulli had previously topped the same list for four years in a row before closing its doors to become a ‘culinary foundation’.

Many other Spanish restaurants rank among the 50 best in the world.

Among them are Mugaritz by Anoni Luis Aduriz (4th position), Arzak by Juan Mari Arzak (8th position) or chef Quique Dacosta’s restaurant with his name in Valencia (26th position).


  1. The List is a joke. Not saying the food’s not great but the list is totally lop-sided.

    Bunch of well-travelled gourmets voting and 3/7 must be for restaurants outside their region. Their region is obviously European. Just look at their manifesto of all the 7 language only Russia and Japanese are not European.

    Even their 50 best restaurants in Asia is full of European restaurants in Asia.

    With no voting criteria. I can’t help but notice all 5 star restaurants with fancy, beautiful decor. Was taste even a factor of the vote? Not a single authentic Asian restaurant on their list (minus Japanese). How suspicious.
