Food with a view in your own backyard!

If you’re hungry for a good meal with a killer view, look no further than your own backyard. Alberta is home to 12 of OpenTable's Top 100 Most Scenic Restaurants in Canada, and they’re definitely bucket list worthy.

The best restaurants in Canada were recently ranked by OpenTable, online provider of restaurant reservations, and Alberta has made it to the third spot as the province with the most scenic places to eat.

“We can’t think of a better way to celebrate summer travel season than with this list of restaurants with some of the nation’s most stunning vistas,” said Caroline Potter from OpenTable in a news release.

The list is the result of OpenTable’s diner reviews from June 1, 2018 until May 31, 2019 and will help foodies who love a good view find a new restaurant. Overall regional ratings, total number of reviews, overall diner ratings, and more were analyzed to generate the list, and it’s already making us hungry.

Check out the 12 Alberta restaurants that were featured on the OpenTable list:
