TripAdvisor just released its list of the best restaurants in the world.

The list is based on millions of traveller ratings and reviews.

Most of this year’s winners are in Europe, but there are a few restaurants in America, Asia, Africa, and Australia that made it onto the list.

From a former temple in Beijing to an elegant restaurant overlooking beautiful gardens in Paris, here are the 25 best restaurants around the globe, according to Tripadvisor users.

25. Borago, Santiago, Chile

'This is a unique restaurant. They offer two tasting menus, one of which is a six course and the other 10 course. We chose the 10 course, which took us four hours to eat! We had local ingredients, like flowers, herbs, mushrooms, etc. Each meal came with a different wine. Great service, great food! Lots of fun. Worth it.' - TripAdvisor reviewer VickaB

24. Vue de Monde, Melbourne, Australia


'This is not a meal out. This was a theatrical dining experience. Every dish is presented in a very unique way. We were blown away by most dishes. Very expensive, but a once in a lifetime experience.' - TripAdvisor reviewer IdanGrossman

23. La Bourgogne, Buenos Aires, Argentina


'We bring guests here often when they are visiting from out of the area and we are downtown for the day... The food quality and service staff are always top notch! No matter what we order, the food is tasty and plentiful.' - TripAdvisor reviewer Mendoza H

22. The Test Kitchen, Woodstock, South Africa


'The Test Kitchen lives up to all the recognition it receives from travel sites and gourmet magazines. Nestled away from downtown, the restaurant offers a wonderful multiple course lunch and dinner, serving food that takes local flavours and ingredients and is prepared very well. I must say that this was the best meal I had in Africa.' - TripAdvisor reviewer JulianCarlo

21. Funky Gourmet, Athens, Greece


'If you like to try different things, this is the place to taste innovative dishes prepared by talented chefs. Good wine list, beautiful surroundings, and an experience worth having! Not cheap but totally worth it!' - TripAdvisor reviewer Lena L

20. Noma, Copenhagen, Denmark


'Absolutely fantastic dinner at Noma; menu including 18 super delicious servings, each truly unique and with exquisite taste. It is not only food, it is a series of delicious pieces of eatable art. And staff was polite, smiling, and observant. Engangement, enthusiasm, and true proudness drive their effort. Thank you much, Noma, we will visit you again.' - TripAdvisor reviewer Michael Brun H

19. The French Cafe, Aukland, New Zealand


'This is the second time we've been to The French Cafe and it was even better than the first. The service is always attentive, without being intrusive, and the food is stunning. Last night the place was full and had a bit more atmosphere than the first time we visited. A thoroughly enjoyable, delicious experience!'- TripAdvisor reviewer LibbyLibstar

18. El Club Allard, Madrid, Spain


'My first experience of this restaurant and it was quite outstanding. The cuisine was a work of art in the mix of intense and varied flavours and beautiful presentation. The staff were quite delightful and made the whole occasion very special. The wine waiter was particularly helpful, listened to my specifications and suggested appropriate wine. An unforgettable experience.' -TripAdvisor reviewer Nesta S

17. Restaurant Locavore, Ubud, Indonesia


'Food in Ubud in general is great. Locavore is the pinnacle. Just...go there! My favourite (and a drool-worthy memory) is the simple and exquisite tomato sorbet.' - TripAdvisor reviewer diikon

16. Alinea, Chicago, Illinois


'It is difficult to review this restaurant without spoiling some of the surprise diners have in store. Come here if you want a culinary experience with superb service and excellent wines. If you are planning to come to Chicago and you want a meal you will not forget then buy your ticket at the Alinea.' - TripAdvisor reviewer Ray T

15. Bouley, New York City, New York


'A lovely drawing room type setting provides the background to delicious tasting menu items drawn from French and adjacent countries' cuisines. The alcohol list is stupendous as well as the wide variety of breads. A good address for a special dining experience in NYC.' - TripAdvisor reviewer Harry R

14. HanTing Restaurant, The Hague, Netherlands


'Superb Asian-French fusion cuisine served by tremendously nice, attentive, and knowledgeable people. Everything was of a high standard and the wines matched the food superbly. Highly recommended. The entire place was spotlessly clean. My only complaint, and then only more of a remark than a real complaint, is that the tables are a little too close to each other.' - TripAdvisor reviewer Stephen C

13. Table 9, Dubai, United Arab Emirates


'This is a beautiful small restaurant. We had the chef's tasting menu and it was absolutely amazing. We also got to tour the kitchen and meet the chef. The service was top notch. We had a great romantic evening.' - TripAdvisor reviewer Beth S

12. TRB, Beijing, China


'If you only have time to visit one restaurant in Beijing then Temple is the place. 600 years old temple, artworks, food, and service unbeatable.' - TripAdvisor reviewer Nis Peter L

10. Epicure, Paris, France


'Words aren't adequate to describe the overall experience of dining at Epicure. The setting overlooking the garden of Le Bristol hotel, the interior decor, the friendliness of the staff, the amazing food and wine. It's the meal of a lifetime. You can certainly tell the difference between a three star restaurant and all others.' - TripAdvisor reviewer Ginger S

9. Le Manoir Aux Quat' Saisons, Great Milton, England


'Wonderful. A benchmark for the quality and freshness of food (some from the garden) and impeccable service. There is a lovely welcoming serene atmosphere. Very subtle and perfectly judged tasting menu. This is the only meal I remember having where later courses lit up and brought out the flavours of previous courses.' - TripAdvisor reviewer Camperio

8. NARISAWA, Minato, Japan


'The best culinary experience of my life. Every dish was a trip inside Japan's culture and tradition. Some ingredients I had never eaten before, and a nice wine list. It's really expensive, but is a once in a lifetime restaurant.' - TripAdvisor reviewer tclava

7. PIC, Valence, France


'Ended a two week holiday in France by going to PIC. It was fantastic, a wonderful freshness and flavour to the food. Our waiter was very helpful with our limited French, and service in general was superb. It was everything we expected from a three Michelin star chef, and worth visiting.' - TripAdvisor reviewer Irishguyindublin

6. Geranium, Copenhagen, Denmark


'We were treated to a multi-course dinner with wine pairings, as an excursion as part of our Baltic cruise on the Viking Star. The modern restaurant is in a building overlooking the national stadium. Each course was meticulously plated and delicious. Innovative presentation, excellent ingredients, informal setting, impeccable service.' - TripAdvisor reviewer Robert S

5. Restaurant Sat Bains, Nottingham, England


'We had a fantastic meal here. Less reliant on gimmicks and more on truly brilliant tasting food. The location may be a little strange but you feel like you are in a bubble of culinary quality. We stayed in the rooms on site and can recommend this as the breakfast was also amazing.' - TripAdvisor reviewer Timothy L

4. Adam's, Birmingham, England


'On this visit we indulged on the nine course taster menu and once again were blown away by the professionalism of the staff, the presentation, and of course the amazing food. Highly recommended, definitely one for your bucket list!' - TripAdvisor reviewer crazydave79

3. Maison Lameloise, Chagny, France


'Quite a jewel. Nothing that would fail to give this restaurant five stars. Highly competent cuisine and faultless staff. The pigeon was one of the best dishes we have ever eaten. Snail popcorn was the kids' favourite! Morning spent buying wine in Burgundy and lunch to follow - the perfect day.' - TripAdvisor reviewer Bob R

2. Europea, Montreal, Canada


'A dining experience you will never forget. Memorable presentation and wonderful food. A true night out to remember. Save this place for special occasions. Worth the wait in reservations. Ask for a tour of the kitchen.' - TripAdvisor reviewer Muffin7171

1. Martin Berasategui, Lasarte, Spain


'Second time at this restaurant and this evening was a gastronomic highlight. We went for the great tasting menu and every little dish were just fantastic. Superb wine-list with good prices. Fantastic staff and service. One of the best dinners in my life and a memory for a lifetime. Martin, see you again in 2017!' - TripAdvisor reviewer Kim P
