Tourists named the best restaurants in Russia and the world
Based on user reviews, the TripAdvisor travel site ranked the best gourmet establishments in Russia and the world. This list is in many respects different from the authoritative expert rating of “50 best restaurants in the world”.
This year, TripAdvisor users recognized St. Petersburg’s Percorso as the number one gourmet restaurant in Russia. Occupying four rooms on the ground floor of the Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace, this restaurant prepares modern Italian cuisine: vitello tonato with celery and tuna and caper sauce, spaghetti di graniano on a pillow of tomato fondue and fried sea bass with white zucchini, squid and caramelized tomatoes. “The restaurant demonstrates not only the highest quality of food and drinks, it emphasizes individual work with each guest”, “Ravioli with spinach, Rossini and mashed potatoes in truffle oil is very tasty!”, “We were with a child, presented a soft toy, occupied with coloring books », – they respond about the institution on TripAdvisor.
Second place in the list was taken by the Moscow steak house “Bizon” on Kitay-Gorod. The guests praised the restaurant for its “simple but beautiful serving of dishes”, “breathtaking steak” and delicious salads with crab and tomatoes. Closes the top 3 Petersburg restaurant of Russian cuisine “Palkin”, where TripAdvisor users advise trying molecular herring under a fur coat, branded ice cream, whose preparation one of the reviewers described as “extravaganza”, phalanx of crab and stellate sturgeon. Also in the list of the 10 best Russian establishments were Turandot and Cafe Pushkin (Moscow), Ribeye, Mansard and Tsar (St. Petersburg), La Bottega Siciliana (Moscow) and Terrassa (St. Petersburg). At the same time, the Moscow White Rabbit is not included in the tourist rating this year, taking 18th place in the authoritative list of “50 best restaurants in the world” according to the British magazine The Restaurant Magazine, annually compiled by experts in the restaurant industry: chefs, restaurateurs, critics, and so on. Further. Do not get into the top ten Twins and “Honest cuisine”, included in the expanded list of “100 best restaurants in the world.” Thus, the opinion of ordinary guests completely diverged from the ratings of professionals.
The tourist list of the best restaurants in the world is also very different from the expert. In particular, Martin Berasategui (Lasarte, Spain) took first place in the TripAdvisor user rating as well as last year. However, he did not even enter the top twenty “50 best restaurants in the world”, as well as Maison Lameloise (Chani, France) and L’Auberge de l’Ill (Ilyaesern, France), which users of the tourist site considered the second and third best restaurants the planet. Also in the top 10, compiled on the basis of reviews of tourists, included Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons (Great Milton, Great Britain), Ristorante Don Alfonso 1890 (Sant’Agata-Sui-Douai-Golfi, Italy), Alinea (Chicago, USA), The Waterside Inn (Bray-on-Thames, UK), Voila Bistrot (Parati, Brazil), Adam’s (Birmingham, UK) and Azurmendi Gastronomico (Larrabetzu, Spain).
