Canada's 100 Best Restaurants List 2023 has just been released and it sheds light on the best, most underrated, and most delicious culinary destinations across the whole country.

Every year Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants reveals the crème de la crème of dining establishments, and this year, a team of 135 judges has contributed to the selection process.

In the top spot is Montreal’s Mon Lapin. The restaurant – which also featured on last year's list in sixth position – is known for its fresh cuisine and playful bunny theme

In the second position was Toronto's Alo. The restaurant is especially known for its blind tasting menu, with seats regularly selling out weeks beforehand, so it’s not all too surprising that it made the cut.

Published on Main in Vancouver takes the third position, offering a swanky atmosphere and creative dishes.

While restaurants in Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal dominate the top 10, several spots from other parts of the country also make the list, including The Restaurant at Pearl Morissette in Jordan Station and Langdon Hall in Cambridge.

Noteworthy additions to the top 10 this year include AnnaLena and Kissa Tanto in Vancouver and Beba in Quebec. In fact, as many as 25 restaurants made their debut on this year's ranking.

Thinking about treating yourself in the near future? Here's a look at the full list:
