Your Cheat Sheet: The Best Restaurants in Europe

Selene - Santorini Greece

The Daily Meal’s 101 Best Restaurants in Europe list is out! While other Best of Europe lists have covered similar territory, no one else has covered 31 countries and enlisted the assistance of European food and dining experts to whittle down the continent’s thousands of restaurants (beginning with 1,450) into a more manageable 101 – leaving only the essential restaurants that discerning diners must try. The Daily Meal covers all things food and drink, creating a complete epicurean experience for cooks, food lovers, wine, beer and spirit connoisseurs, discerning diners and everyone in-between. Comprised of original content and video from Award winning editors, industry insiders, tastemakers and the user community, The Daily Meal is one of the largest food sites on the Web and the first property of Spanfeller Media Group, founded by Jim Spanfeller.

The list, which took seven months to curate, runs the gamut from French to fusion and traditional to molecular gastronomy, with all price points covered. No island, hamlet, principality, or city was overlooked. The list includes the most exemplary epicurean endeavors in Europe’s capital cities but also in far-flung locales.

Consulting with Michelin Guide and other trusted sources, The Daily Meal gathered hundreds of recommendations from The Daily Meal’s editors, who have traveled and dined extensively around the world. They reached out to a panel of more than 200 knowledgeable judges, comprised of restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers with wide restaurant-going experience. Then, they curated a separate panels by region so only experts on the UK voted for UK restaurants, Italy experts voted for Italy and so on.

VOTING CRITERIA

Panelists voted in two categories: cuisine and style/décor/service.

Cuisine: From innovative menu options to plating and presentation to freshness, quality, and taste, panelists evaluated each restaurant’s cuisine and only voted for the restaurants which they believe are extraordinary.

Style/décor/service: panelists evaluated the dining experience, from the restaurant’s interior and dining room ambiance to the service, voting for the restaurants which they believe offer an unrivaled experience.
