William Drew, Group Editor of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, said: “We are thrilled to share the 51-100 list ahead of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards ceremony. We are privileged and excited to congratulate all of the restaurants, chefs and staff that make up the 100 best restaurants, starting with those ranked from 51 to 100. Every restaurant listed should be incredibly proud and we hope that this provides a culinary compass for diners around the world.”
 
How The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list is compiled
The list is created from the votes of The Diners Club® World’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy, an influential group of almost 1,000 international leaders in the restaurant community. The Academy comprises 27 separate regions around the world, each of which has 36 members, including a chairperson, and each member can cast seven votes. Of those seven, at least three votes must recognise restaurants outside of the academy member’s own region.
 
The panel in each region is made up of food writers and critics, chefs, restaurateurs and highly regarded ‘gastronomes’. Members list their choices in order of preference, based on their best restaurant experiences of the previous 18 months. There is no pre-determined check-list of criteria, but there are strict voting rules.
 
The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list is independently adjudicated by professional services consultancy Deloitte. This adjudication ensures that the integrity and authenticity of the voting process and the resulting list of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2016 are protected.
