The world’s best restaurants have been named by TripAdvisor, with three of the top ten located in the UK.
The travel review company has just revealed its Travellers' Choice Restaurants winners for 2016, with Martin Berasategui in Spain voted the best in the world.
Situated just outside of San Sebastian in Spain, the three-Michelin-starred restaurant is named after the head chef, and takes the top spot for the second year in a row.
The restaurant is famed for its modern Spanish cuisine, with visitors able to enjoy dishes such as red mullet with edible scale crystals and fennel with saffron and liquid baby squid bonbon.
Two French restaurants, Maison Lameloise and L'Auberge de I'lll, finished in second and third respectively.
Raymond Blanc’s Belmond Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons, located in Oxfordshire, claimed fourth spot and is one of three UK restaurants to feature among the world top ten.
The restaurant, which boasts two Michelin stars, also claimed the title of the best restaurant in the UK this year – having previously done so in 2013.
The three-Michelin-starred Waterside Inn in Bray (seventh) and the one-Michelin-starred Adam's in Birmingham (ninth) were the other two UK restaurants in the list.
“With more UK restaurants in the world top ten than any other country for the second year running, the UK has again proved that it’s a heavyweight player in the world of fine dining,” commented TripAdvisor spokesperson, Hayley Coleman.
In fifth and sixth place respectively is the Italian Ristorante Don Alfonso and the only representative from the US, Alinea, based in Chicago.
Situated in South America, Brazil's Voila Bistrot snagged the number eight position, whilst another restaurant from Spain, Azurmendi Gastronomico, finished in tenth.
The awards are travellers’ favourite fine dining restaurants worldwide, and are based on millions of valuable reviews and opinions on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period.
