2020 World Luxury Restaurant Awards Winners Announced

11 November 2020

To celebrate the 5th year of the World Luxury Restaurant Awards the winners of these prestigious awards have been announced representing more than 61 countries and 365 restaurants.

The World Luxury Restaurant Awards recognizes establishments for world-class service excellence. Awards are presented on a country, regional, continent and global basis. Winners are selected by public vote online, providing true recognition that reflects the hard work and dedication exhibited by staff.  

We started the 2020 award year with great excitement, planning two very special and unique events in Indonesia and Mauritius. We adapted to the ever-changing circumstances, and to make up for being unable to host an event, we decided to do our utmost to provide all participants with a special winner package, including individual personal video clips, a video message from management and a set of winner images announcing their win.

The 2020 Global Restaurant of the Year Award went to ESCĀ Cairo in Egypt, congratulations to Ahmed Heggy and his team on receiving this prestigious award. Winners are highly deserving of this prestigious award, epitomizing as they do the ethos of luxury and fine service. Many factors play a part in determining the global restaurant of the year winner, such as brand, location and overall guest satisfaction as per feedback via online reviews, among others. This year the focus was on those that showed true determination during a year never experience in our industry before.

“We congratulate this year’s winners. It speaks volumes to your dedication and commitment to our industry in this challenging year. True luxury is not easily attained. It takes highly efficient and dedicated staff, who are willing to go the extra mile and stop at nothing to ensure that every guest feels cared for and no challenge goes unresolved. This is the definition of luxury, it is what makes the winners shine.” says World Luxury Awards Marketing Director, Michael Hunter-Smith.

As the year draws to an end both FRANCE 24, our official sponsor, and ourselves are confidently optimistic that 2021 will see the international travel and tourism industry start its growth and recovery. We look forward to sharing this journey with you all.
