“Where should we eat?” For the third year in a row, we’re helping you settle this exact debate with the return of our Top 100 Places to Eat in Canada list. Just like last year, our data scientists look at heaps of reviews, photos and tips to help the hungry decide where to get their next bite to eat.
The results of our data science team’s meeting of the minds is a list that combines returning favourites like this year’s no. 1 eatery Baretto Caffe and Bouillon Bilk (no. 18 with its fresh take on modern French cuisine) and new must-try restaurants like Tavola (no. 34, Yelpers love their delicious Italian dishes). Last year’s top restaurant Muncheez still remains a favourite, coming in at number 2. The list also shows that Toronto continues to be Canada’s top foodie destination with 5 of the top ten eateries and more than 30 of the top 100 eateries — more than any other city!
You’re going to want to make a note of these spots, so we made it easy for you. With our bookmark collections feature, you can see the whole list in one place and follow it!

Businesses that appeared on our 2017 list are marked with ♥
To determine Yelp’s Top 100 Places to Eat in Canada for 2018, we looked at the reviews received by businesses in the restaurant and food categories, focusing more on more recent reviews. We considered both the rating and the volume of the reviews, although the weight given to the sheer number of reviews is distinctly lighter than it was last year. To localize the list, we only considered the reviews written by the users from Canada. Businesses must be primarily a restaurant or place to eat a meal to be included on the list. If a business with multiple locations appears more than once on the list, we keep the highest ranked location and mentions the others in a footnote.
