Welcome to your one-stop shop for the best restaurants in the world. We’ve spent more than 50 years looking for the freshest, most inventive and downright tastiest places to eat in cities around the globe. Our local editors and writers never stop searching for great food, phenomenal value, amazing atmosphere and memorable meals – because we know that eating well is a big deal.

Our mission is to ignore empty hype and overinflated reputations and instead look for fun, flavour, freshness and value at every price point. Our local best restaurants list include cosy neighbourhood joints alongside high-end institutions and the crème de la crème of the latest openings. Whether it’s a smart destination restaurant or a pop-up in a shipping container, the one consistent factor is this: if it’s on the list, we think it’s worth your time and money.  

Learn more about how Time Out reviews restaurants, so you know you’re in good hands – and then dive into our selection of the very best restaurants in the world’s most exciting culinary destinations. Time to eat!

Time Out Market: Where our curation comes to life

For decades, Time Out has discovered and championed the best of city culture – from art and theatre to food and drink. Now that curation has leapt off our magazine and web pages and into physical reality as Time Out Market – a place where you can immerse yourself in the best stuff in your city, all under one roof (and a few with expansive outdoor spaces). Ready to dig in? Take a look at Time Out Market locations around the globe, including Dubai, Lisbon, New York and Chicago.
