The 50 best restaurants in the world for 2018, African restaurant makes list

The list of the 50 best restaurants in the world for 2018 have been announced. And the only African restaurant to make the list is Test Kitchen (Cape Town, South Africa)

The announcement was made as top restaurateurs from five continents descended on the city of Bilbao, Spain, for the awards ceremony last night with Italy’s Osteria Francescana taking the top spot.

This isn’t the first time Osteria Francescana, whose head chef is Massimo Bottura, has been crowned best restaurant in the world though – the restaurant, which is known for inventive reimaginings of Italian classics – also emerged on top in 2016.

Not one British restaurant made the top 30, but London’s The Clove Club came in at 33, Lyle’s at 38 and The Ledbury at 42.

Also noticeable was the lack of female chefs at the awards, which are known as the Oscars of the fine dining world.
