List Notes: Data is the top 5 world's best restaurants for the year 2014. Price range may or may not include wine. The top 50 restaurants ranking is as voted for by a panel of over 900 food experts. The rules are as follows: Voting is strictly confidential before the list announcement. Panellists vote for 7 restaurants, at least 3 of which must be outside their own country. They can also vote for 7 restaurants outside their own country. Voters must have eaten in the restaurants they nominate within the previous 18 months. Voters are not permitted to vote for restaurants they own or have a financial interest in. Nominations must be made for the restaurant, not for the restaurateur or the chef Panellists submit their 7 choices in order of preference (this information is used to decide on positions in the event of a tie). These criteria are designed to allow panellists to vote far and wide. They could vote for a small, unknown restaurant in a secluded region, or select the best-known restaurants in the world or in their region; it is their opinion and the experiences they have had that matters.
