Montreal restaurants are out here snagging awards left and right now!

The city is known to be a culinary hot spot across the world, and there really is no denying how astounding our food scene is. After including two Montreal restaurants in its list of Travel Guide Star Awards winners, Forbes would agree.

The media released the winners of its 2022 Star Awards on April 26, recognizing the "most outstanding hotels, restaurants and spas" across the globe that travellers just have to visit.

A total of 253 restaurants made up the best of the best when it comes to international food and Montreal seized two of those spots.

Forbes pretty much sends secret agents... okay, not agents, but inspectors, to luxury hotels, restaurants and spas across the world in order to compile the award-winning list.

"Our global team of inspectors are anonymous at all times, so they have the same experience as a typical guest," Forbes stated.

So, which two acclaimed Montreal restaurants actually made the list?
