Tripadvisor, the world's largest travel guidance platform, today announced the next in its community-powered Travelers' Choice® Awards series: the 2022 Best of the Best Restaurants. Here to help everyone discover all the must-visit restaurants when traveling, Tripadvisor is sharing the top-rated spots across the globe, inclusive of six different subcategories of restaurant types. Discerning diners can peruse the menu of winners here.

Award-winning restaurants this year spanned six continents and 51 countries. Global labor challenges and ongoing COVID-19 restrictions continued to limit dine-in capacity in some markets - for instance, some Asian nations were closed to international tourists for nearly the entire data evaluation period. Still, gourmands the world over savored dining out, leaving millions of reviews on Tripadvisor chronicling their experiences.

"Dining out is an internationally beloved pastime: for many restaurant-goers, it's frequenting their favorite neighborhood eatery and for others, it's snagging a table at a top-rated restaurant on vacation. More than half of consumers in a recent survey* told us that food is the most exciting component of their trip," said Lauren Murphy, Vice President, GM of Hospitality Solutions at Tripadvisor. "Like searching through a big menu for the perfect meal, recommendations can be helpful in decision making, and our community's guidance makes choosing from the wide array of restaurants easier. Tripadvisor's Best of the Best Awards, decided by people who visited and reviewed these places in the past year, offers authentic recommendations for the best places to eat no matter the occasion!"
