Here are some of fine dining restaurants I have been to around the world. These range from some of the Worlds Best 50 restaurants to superb fine dining restaurants locally. I have been to many more, but these hold a special place for me. I will be visiting El Cellar de Can Roca next year (voted the best restaurant in the world) and cant wait!
I have also curated a list of all the Scottish Michelin Awarded restaurants for 2020 from the Michelin Guide. You can view it HERE to find a great restaurant near you or on your travels in Scotland.
