Here Are Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants by Province According to Open Table

Canada is a little slice of heaven for foodies; an amuse bouche, a smorgasbord of fine-dining.

So the problem isn’t finding somewhere wonderful to eat so much as narrowing down the huge wealth of options available.

Praise be then for Open Table, the real-time online restaurant reservation service. Not only do they make it simple for us to make a last-minute reso at our favourite eateries, they’ve also compiled a list of the 100 best restaurants in Canada.

Based on the analysis of more than 275,000 reviews by verified diners from approximately 1,600 restaurants across the country, the list has whittled down the top restaurants so we don’t have to.

Spanning seven different provinces of Canada, it seems that no matter where we are in the country, Canadians tend to prefer French dining, which came out as the most popular type of cuisine.

Ontario had the most award winners, with 41 restaurants, and Toronto topped the city with the most on the list, with 28 great places to eat in The Big Smoke.

British Columbia came next, with 20, and Alberta was right on its heels with 19. Quebec had 17, and Manitoba, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Nova Scotia all had one each.

Montreal came runner-up for cities with 16, and Vancouver was third, earning 11 spots on the list.

Here are the top 100 restaurants by province.
