The 50 best restaurants in the world 2018

Massimo Bottura’s Osteria Francescana regained top spot in the annual list

Osteria Francescana, Massimo Bottura’s restaurant in Modena, Italy, has been named the best restaurant in the world. The annual list ranking the world’s 50 best restaurants was revealed tonight at a ceremony in Bilbao, Spain, with Bottura’s restaurant regaining the top spot it relinquished last year to New York’s Eleven Madison Park, which dropped to number four in the list. Other notable entries in the top ten include El Celler de Can Roca in Spain (2), Central in Peru (6) and France’s Arpège (8).

The highest ranked British entry is The Clove Club at 33, with Lyle’s (38), The Ledbury (41) and Heston Blumenthal’s Dinner (45) also making the cut. On the night, there was also an award for Britain’s Clare Smyth who was named best female chef.
