This list began in 2002 as an alternative to Restaurant Magazine to other classifications, organized and compiled by William Reed Media, is a reflection of the experiences that almost a thousand gourmet experts had in restaurants around the world during a year. This makes a source of trends and references in the gastronomic sector.

A jury consisting of 972 expert members in gastronomy, composed of chefs, food and restaurant journalists and gourmets around the world conduct the selection of the 50 best restaurants in the world, as a result of the total count, those who selected on the basis of their tastes and personal experiences during the visit made to the establishment. So every year there may be radical changes among the winner’s restaurants, or stay in the privileged places for some years as these restaurants ‘El Celler de Can Roca‘, ‘Osteria Francescana‘, ‘Noma‘, ‘Central‘ and ‘Eleven Madison Park‘ have remained in the top during the last years. Voters are divided into the following percentages: 34% chefs and restaurateurs, 33% food writers and 33% well-travelled gourmets, they remain anonymous and the process is strictly confidential.

To perform the election of restaurants, organizers divided the world into 27 regions. Each region consists of 36 members as a voting panel, whose have seven votes each; three of these should be used for restaurants outside their region. The organizers aim that at least 30% of the panelists are different every year. None of the employees of any of the sponsors associated with the awards, including the main sponsor and the Academy sponsor votes or has any influence over the results.

Any restaurant can be elected to the list of top 50 restaurants in the world, as long as it is in operation at the time of the publication of the list of winners. Although there is no requirement to be in the list, it is not possible to request to be included in the selection list.
