This book proves without a doubt how very far Canada has evolved from
the days of “meat and two veg” meals. The availability of fine
cuisine from every corner of the world is now ubiquitous. The writers of
this work (11 regional editors and 27 contributing editors) obviously
enjoyed their work and, for the most part, rejoice in the multiplicity
of flavors and textures they test.

Ten regional maps pinpoint the location of each of the 600 restaurants
reviewed in 263 cities, towns, and villages across the country—places
often as remote as Oyster Bed Bridge, P.E.I., and Okotoks, Alberta. The
restaurants are rated according to specialties served, decor, type,
cost, service and, in many instances, chef and owners, as well
surrounding sights of interest. The result is a thorough and
comprehensive guide to a vast variety of eateries across the nation, an
invaluable guide to visitors to new or unfamiliar areas of Canada.

The handbook is, fortunately, updated annually. The restaurant business
is fickle, and an establishment in good standing at the time of review
may well have closed, changed chefs, or be under new management by the
time the book is in print. In any case, it is always wise to call
one’s choice first.
