  1. Abode, Canterbury
  2. Alfies, London
  3. Craft, New York
  4. Omero, Florence
  5. Harveys, Ramsgate
  6. Hibiscus, London

Restaurants that do not have their own posts:-

Beau Rivage Palace (La Rotonde) , Lausanne snooty service and tasteless cooking in a very grand setting.

Fortunately this place is now gone, replaced by Anne-Sophie Pics new Restaurant.

Casa Calvert, Barcelona– dull, with bad service. My main course arrived with the jus dripping off the side of the plate, the waiter did not even notice. The modernista decor was not enough to justify the visit.

La Dama, Barcelona – beautiful building, very disappointing food, check out the prices on the La Dama website too,  this is most definitely a tourist trap.

The wine list however is first class.

Restaurant Terrassa, Barcelona – when lit up with fairy lights at night this place looks stunning (from the outside), then you go inside and it looks very dodgy. Eating here was a big mistake.

At the end of the year I will nominate the Restaurant that qualifies as the worst of the worst for 2009.

For the other end of the spectrum, see the Best of the best.
