TripAdvisor names world’s best fine dining restaurants and the UK makes the cut

If you’re looking for a place to eat on your travels, TripAdvisor is probably your first port of call for online reviews.

So it’s safe to say you trust their ratings. You’ll be pleased to know then that they’ve compiled a list of the best restaurants around the world that you should definitely check out on your next travels.

But thankfully one of them, the Restaurant Sat Bains, is a lot closer to home. You can check out this fourth best eatery in the world quite easily as it’s only in Nottingham.

Though it’s the first establishment to win an accolade as such, it doesn’t come as much of a surprise as the Sat Bains boasts two Michelin stars and a glorious seven and ten-course tasting menu.

Restaurant owners Sat and Amanda Bains said: ‘We have always believed in our team and our location, and we feel both the kitchen brigade and front of house team we have currently are the strongest we have ever had.

‘It’s very flattering to receive such high praise from our guests, and we are immensely proud to fly the flag, not just for our home city of Nottingham and the Midlands, but the UK too.

‘To be among restaurants of such high calibre in the world ranking is extremely humbling. It’s an honour to be recognised and it will inspire us to keep pushing to deliver the ultimate in gastronomy. There will certainly be extra celebrations at our Christmas party this month.’

The top spot went to French joint Au Crocodile, a Michelin starred restaurant in Strasbourg, named after a stuffed crocodile. The French clearly know what they’re doing as the Martin Berasategui, in Lasarte took second spot.

If you fancy eating at some top bougie spots then don’t worry you won’t have to travel to the ends of the earth for it as three other UK restaurants made the top 25.

Birmingham’s Adam’s restaurant, which has a Michelin Star, three AA Rosettes and a score of 7 in the Good Food Guide, placed eleventh.

Meanwhile, Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons in New Milton, West Hampshire came fifteenth.

Better jot down the names.
