The best restaurants in Canada have been revealed and you'll want to add them to your culinary bucket list right away.

The Forbes Travel Guide, which claims to be the "global authority on luxury hospitality," says nine Canadian restaurants have earned a spot on their "coveted annual Star Rating."

While most of the top restaurants are in Toronto, some other locations across Canada made it onto the list.

Getting a Star Rating is no joke, as Forbes undergoes some rigorous inspections to determine who should be included.

"We visit every hotel, restaurant, and spa that we Star Rate, paying our own way and staying anonymously as a typical guest," they shared.

"No one can buy a rating under any circumstance. Every Star Rating is earned through our objective, independent process."

So here's which locations have earned a spot as one of the best places to eat in Canada!
