By Lucas Casaletto

The annual Top 100 list of Canada’s Best Restaurants has been released, and while Montreal took the coveted number-one spot this year, Alberta dining spots were featured a ton.

Montreal’s Mon Lapin, which translates to My Rabbit in French, received the nod for the country’s best restaurant of 2024, described as having that “elusive sweet spot between casual and special occasion restaurant.”

It’s the second straight year Mon Lapin has finished as Canada’s best restaurant.

A total of five Alberta restaurants cracked this year’s Top 100 list.

Unfortunately for Edmonton, four of the top four restaurants in the province are in Calgary, and the fifth is in Canmore.

Judges voted for restaurants based on service, décor, the depth of the cellar, and food quality. Each judge was asked to vote for a minimum of three restaurants outside of their home region.

Toronto restaurants featured on Top 100 list

  • River Café (#23)

  • Major Tom #52)
  • Änkôr (#76)

Edmonton did worse than last year. The 2023 list, which saw two restaurants in the city included in the Top 100 (Biera and RGE RD).

Elsewhere in Canada, the city of Montreal had the most restaurants cracking the list, with 27. There were 24 in Toronto, 18 in Vancouver, six in Ottawa, three in Winnipeg, two in Québec City and one in Saskatoon.

A spokesperson for Canada’s 100 Best said the number of restaurants in each province and region is proportional to its population.

“C100B congratulates all of them for their exceptional work. And we look forward to visiting again very soon.”
