The World’s 50 Best Restaurants of 2018

The 2018 ceremony took place in Bilbao, Spain on June 19, having moved from Australia the year before.

The World’s 50 Best Restaurants is a list produced by the British magazine Restaurant, based on a poll of international chefs, restaurateurs, gourmands and restaurant critics. In addition to the main ranking, the Chef’s Choice list is based on votes from the fifty head chefs from the restaurants on the previous year’s list.
