This growth is great to witness as the gastronomic world continues to recover and rebuild following the huge challenges faced during the pandemic. We look forward to sharing the celebration at the awards ceremony in London on 18th July.”

The Voting Process

The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2022 list is voted for by 1,080 international restaurant industry experts and well-travelled gourmets who make up The World’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy. The gender-balanced Academy comprises 27 separate regions around the world, each of which has 40 members including a chairperson. No sponsor from the event has any influence over the voting process.

Professional services consultancy Deloitte independently adjudicates The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, including the ranking from 51-100. This adjudication ensures that the integrity and authenticity of the voting process and the resulting lists are protected.


The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2022 will be announced live at a ceremony being held in London on Monday 18th July, which will also be streamed live on the 50 Best Facebook via the link here and YouTube channels via the link here. The announcement of the list and individual awards can be followed via the 50 Best social media channels, with the livestream beginning at 20:30 (UK time).
