Connecting people with great local businesses is what we do best, so for this year’s Top 100 list we asked our Yelp community to help us create a list that includes unique and highly admired restaurants across Canada. For the first time ever, this year’s Top 100 Places to Eat in Canada list is the culmination of thousands of suggestions we received from the Yelp community, a list of hidden gems and familiar favorites that can put a smile on anyone’s face! Toronto remains a top foodie destination with 27 eateries making the list, and claiming 6 of the top 10 spots. In Montreal, they have a total of 15 restaurants on the list and over on the west coast, Vancouver has 23 notable restaurants this year.

Our sixth annual list showcases some of the most beloved eateries across Canada. Bringing Syrian flavor to the heart of Montreal, Damas is this year’s no. 1 pick. (some Yelpers say their hummus is the best they’ve ever eaten!) This year’s list finds five-star eateries like Barretto Cafe (no. 3) and Lamajoun (no. 17), making their debut on Yelp’s Top 100. Returning favorites include Manoush’eh (no. 2) and Tom Sushi (no. 11). Whether you’re looking for a fine dining experience or a grab-and-go vegan deli sandwich, there’s something for every taste and budget on the list.

Did we miss one of your favorite eateries? Share your thoughts on the list on social media using #YelpTop100 and tell us what you think. Remember, we only know how good a spot is if people take the time to review it, so share your thoughts on Yelp, and maybe your favorites will be on next year’s list.

Methodology:

To determine Yelp’s Top Places to Eat in Canada in 2021, Yelp reached out to the user community first, requesting individuals to submit restaurants that they can’t wait to return to in 2021 in Canada. 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 across Canada. 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 Yelp Community itself.
