Mon Lapin

Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants List 2023, published today, paints a vibrant portrait of the Canadian culinary scene. The List offers Canadians the most accessible guide to the country’s top dining destinations, with information-packed reviews, and hot tips from food writers and culinary tastemakers across the country. The results are available online today at and on magazine newsstands across the country starting May 22, 2023.

The annual publication, led by Editor-in-Chief Jacob Richler, is a showcase of Canada’s best places to dine as selected by a team of 135 judges, including:

  • Lauren Mozer
  • Franco Stalteri
  • Michael Smith
  • Mijune Pak
  • Élise Tastet
  • Alexandra Gill

“We always pride ourselves on the quality of our best restaurants lists–but all the same, this 2023 edition is a standout. We had more judges than ever before dining out with enthusiasm all across the country–and giving us their invaluable, thoughtful feedback,” said Jacob Richler. “For the first time since 2019, the restaurants they ate at were operating at full stride, firing on all cylinders, their momentum uninterrupted. This list reflects that. Our new number 1 restaurant Mon Lapin is helming a delicious way forward in Montreal’s gastronomy. It’s a great time to be dining out in Canada.”

The List is renowned for being an unbiased metric of restaurant quality in Canada, and represents the consensus of the diverse, knowledgeable insights of the judges. It is tabulated using a rigorous evaluation method and a bespoke software program.
