“What should we eat?” We know the age-old question can be overwhelming so we tapped the Yelp community for their favorite restaurants, and today we are proud to present Canada’s Top 100 Places to Eat in 2023. Whether you’re looking for a quick bite or an upscale dining experience, there’s something for everyone on this year’s list which celebrates the diverse tastes of Canada.
Our eighth annual list features incredible spots from coast to coast. This year’s number 1 restaurant, The Northern Cafe and Grill in Vancouver, is beloved for its Asian Fusion comfort food. Yelpers love the mix of traditional Asian staples, like wonton soup and spring rolls, and classic diner dishes, like french toast and steak and eggs. The list also includes returning favorites Damas (no. 7) and Grandma Loves You (no. 15), which topped the 2021 and 2022 lists respectively.
This year, Montréal takes the lead as the most represented city with 19 eateries making the list, just edging out Toronto and Vancouver. Some of the top Montréal restaurants include Bouillon Bilk (no. 13), Île Flottante (no. 23) and Le Club Chasse et Pêche (no. 36).
Québec is also heavily featured on the list, with Buvette Scott, a local French-inspired favorite coming in at number 2. Other Québec restaurants include L’Orygine (no. 32), L’Affaire Est Ketchup (no. 33) and Le Café du Clocher Penché (no. 35).

Methodology: To determine Yelp’s Top Places to Eat in 2023, Yelp reached out to the user community first, requesting individuals to nominate restaurants in Canada that they can’t wait to return to in 2023. Yelp’s data science team analyzed the submissions from the community to determine the top restaurants by ratings, number of reviews, and volume of submissions, with geographic representation based on equal share of submissions of top-rated restaurants nationally. Yelp further curated the list with the expertise of our Community Managers around the country to finalize the rankings. The resulting list is collaborative and passion driven – an accurate reflection of the Yelp Community itself.
