This year, The World's 50 Best Restaurants awards were held in Melbourne to reveal 50 of the finest food destinations across the world.
The restaurants are judged by over 1000 industry insiders, including food writers, critics, chefs, restaurateurs and gourmets who vote for 10 restaurants each, four of which must be outside their home region.
The restaurants that make the cut can expect a huge surge in publicity and bookings.
Here, we reveal the 50 best restaurants in the world for 2017.
