“The World’s Best Restaurant Selection, 2020 – Eight Tables by George Chen”
– La Liste –

PROCESS
Based on the compilation of hundreds of guidebooks and millions of online reviews, LA LISTE offers the best global restaurant selection handpicked by discerning food critics and expert guides.

1. AGGREGATION
Reviews of the world’s top restaurants by more than 600 guidebooks and trusted publications are put together in a giant database.

2. STANDARDIZATION
Each review score is converted into a standard grade, ranging from 0 to 100, according to conversion tables specific to each guidebook.

3. GUIDE GRADING
Several thousands of chefs are asked to give their opinions about local guidebooks. According to the results of this poll, each guidebook is given a “trustworthiness index” ranking from 0 (not to be trusted at all) to 10 (very trustworthy).

4. PROCESSING
For each listed restaurant, we calculate the average of all standardised review scores, weighted by each source’s trustworthiness index.

5. CUSTOMER REVIEWS
Finally, we integrate online customer reviews, giving them a 10% weighting in the final “La Liste score”.

6. LA LISTE
All restaurants of our database are ranked according to their “La Liste score”.
