More info: How the list is created
The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2022 list is an aggregate of the votes cast by the Voting Academy: a gender-balanced panel of 1,080 anonymous industry experts across 27 regions around the world. These food writers, critics, restaurateurs and well-travelled food lovers each voted for 10 restaurants – with the option of choosing venues in their home region or beyond, depending on their ability to travel over the last 18 months. The voting and results are independently adjudicated by Deloitte.
