TORONTO — OpenTable has released its list of the 100 Best Outdoor Dining Restaurants in Canada for 2017.
Including restaurants with multiple locations, Ontario has the greatest number of restaurants featured with 44, followed by British Columbia with 27 and Alberta with 16. Quebec is home to eight of the recognized restaurants, while Manitoba has five. Nova Scotia is also represented.
“Canadian patio season never lasts as long as we want. With this list, locals and tourists can spend less time hunting for the perfect spot to grab a drink or share a meal and more time soaking up the beautiful weather,” says Ziv Schierau, head of national accounts for OpenTable Canada. “From West-Coast estate wineries to Rocky Mountain retreats and al fresco urban escapes, this list showcases some of the country’s best outdoor-dining destinations this summer.”
The 100 Best Outdoor Dining Restaurants list was generated solely from more than 515,000 restaurant reviews collected from verified OpenTable diners between April 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017. All restaurants with a minimum “overall” score and number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. Qualifying restaurants were then scored and sorted according to the percentage of reviews for which “great for outdoor dining” was selected as a special feature.
