Vancouver, represent! An impressive 16 of the just-revealed best 100 restaurants in Canada are in our fair city.
The list is the influential Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants 2017 rankings, and while Vancouver had a bit more to brag about in 2016 (like Hawksworth nabbing the number three spot) there are some exciting places representing Vancouver this time around.
Speaking of Hawksworth, the eponymous fine dining restaurant from Chef David Hawksworth landed in sixth place, and his sophomore effort, Nightingale, showing up at #31. Plus, one of the city’s most lauded new restaurants, Kissa Tanto, debuts at a more than respectable 14.

Here are all the Vancouver spots on Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants of 2017 list:
14. Kissa Tanto
40. Savio Volpe
72. Ancora Waterfront Dining
78. Blue Water Café
90. Ask For Luigi
93. La Quercia
96. Le Crocodile
The rankings are determined by a combination of expert and informed opinions from not only Canada’s restaurant critics, but well-traveled and food-savvy diners, as well as industry insiders.
Not surprisingly, there’s been little movement at the top of the list, which is pretty thick with Toronto and Montreal establishments.
