The publication of a Top 100 best restaurant list is always of interest to Hot Dinners and today's release from Top Table of their Top 100 diner-rated restaurants in the UK has some interesting inclusions (and omissions).The list has been compiled based on the ratings Top Table users give to restaurants on everything from food and service to ambience and toilet facilities.

Less well known restaurants which make the grade include Quantus in Chiswick and Khyber in Croydon while no fewer than three Gaucho restaurants are rated in the Top 100. There's also a dearth of smaller, popular restaurants like Polpo, Tayyabs, Koya and Trullo on the list.

Chef Michel Roux Jnr, whose Le Gavroche is the highest rated London restaurant at number 3 said: “It is a real pleasure to see that Le Gavroche is rated so highly by so many diners.  It is credit to the whole team who work hard to provide our customers the best possible dining experience.”
