    NOMINATIONS

    Rather than focusing on gourmet fine dining or the style of food that has come to be associated with the Michelin guide, the International Best Restaurant Awards strives to re-direct the spotlight onto the deserving chefs and teams behind the casual, fashionable and fun restaurants that create unique and atmospheric dining experiences that satisfy both the stomach and the soul.

    Our in-house research team identifies both popular restaurants and hidden gems catering for a myriad of diverse cuisines, styles and approaches within an ever-changing landscape of diets, trends and cultural appetites.

    INDEPENDENT EVALUATION

    Our unique panel brings together the old with the new, with centuries of expertise in hospitality as well as established ‘foodies’  and social media superstars who will help to bring your restaurant front of feed.

    We send the most suited judge for each individual category to personally dine at each and every restaurant no matter how far-flung or remote. In a highly curated selection process the judges will meet to confer upon which restaurants deserve the coveted Best Restaurant award.

     

Testimonials

    'On my worldwide travels I encountered incredibly vibrant cultures, but was constantly astounded that their most celebrated and talked about restaurants often failed to represent their local and unique culture and cuisine. It is this certain ‘Nobu-ification’ of restaurants around the world, that we are trying to counteract. You don’t have to fit a certain mould to be successful in our awards, you simply have to be the best at what you do.’
