Top Ten Countries In Europe With the Best Food


The Top Ten

1 Italy Italy Italy, in italian Repubblica Italiana, is a unitary parliamentary republic in Europe. more.

A person who complains about NOT finding many mcdonald's in Italy must probably be obese, smelly, alcoholic, and mentally diseased, basically an example of biological waste

You're complaining about American fast-foods, but what's about Italian fast-foods? Pizza and pasta are both consider than fast-foods, it's just for that reason they are both known. And in any case those Americans are not worse than Italians, even pretty better.

We have been in Italy for our weeding it was a disaster.

We are not used to eat Italian food, and they were not able to cook something else, some more tasty and more pleasant dishes.

Idem for finding restaurant not offering this Italian food, this country is definitively not like the other countries in western Europe.

If you come from a country like ours (Taiwan), we recommend you better to go to other western European country for food but also for the rest, because Italian people are not so nice with tourists.

It should be also mentioned in touristic guides that Italy is like so closed people and way of life.

2 France France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to more.

Concerning snails, just to remind you that it's eaten in more than 60 countries like Bulgaria, Hungary etc... And Italia included.

And to remind you also that in some Asian countries they are eaten dogs, insects, rats, cats, snakes, monkey brain, penis beef etc.. Etc...

The food there is simple yet good and satisfying, I like the pastries and the desserts the most. Escargot maybe sounds kind of gross to some people, but I still like it.

French food is the best. It's my favorite alongside Japanese.

The people in comments probably judge food by how gross it looks and not how it actually tastes

3 Spain Spain Spain, officially the Kingdom of Spain, is a sovereign state largely located on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe, with archipelagos in the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, and several small territories on and near the north African coast.

Everyone in Europe eating Spanish fruits will confirm the low quality of them as low-cost production, with massive used of unpaid North-African slaves and huge amount of pesticides.

Best food so far

Actually I'm not super overwhelmed with Spanish food, but one exception: paella! - ChatonNoir

Spain have the best food in the world.

4 Greece Greece Greece, officially the Hellenic Republic, also known since ancient times as Hellas is a country located in southeastern Europe.

Country that consumes most vegetables!

Amazing food! Healthy and they know how to enjoy living!

5 Germany Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. more.

German food is way better than I thought it would be. Great variety and also pretty healthy

Real pasta here in Germany made with top of ingredients and with the German expertise, the taste far from the other overrated ones.

6 Portugal Portugal Portugal, officially the Portuguese Republic, is a country on the Iberian Peninsula, in Southwestern Europe.

Just the best food in Europe for a small country they really have a deep cuisine from the seafood to super meaty stews.

I've went to a lot of european countries and I can tell you in my opinion and some others, the best overall countries cuisine it France and Portugal, Italy is also amazing.

TOP 5 at least! Nobody ever tasted portuguese food that's why healthy

The Portuguese cosine is not for every stomach, thing like Olive Oil (which is present in almost all dishes) might force some tourist (if they aren�'t from the Mediterranean) to visit our WC

7 Turkey Turkey Turkey, officially the Republic of Turkey, is a transcontinental country in Eurasia, mainly in Anatolia in Western Asia, with a smaller portion on the Balkan peninsula in Southeast Europe. Turkey is bordered by eight countries with Greece and Bulgaria to the northwest; Georgia to the northeast; Armenia, more.

Turkey is definitely on top 3 but unfortunately they are not good at advertising their food. Turkey is the cradle of civilizations and they have amazing tastes for anyone in the world. If you are American, you are going to love their meat dishes, if you are Mediterranean, you gonna love their fruits and vegetable and foods made with olive oil. If you like spicy things, you are going to love their South Eastern dishes. I can't believe people add Germany, USA, and England to this list. It must be a joke. Ask any tourist who has been to Turkey and eat their food and listen to what they say. They adore their food. Turkish food should be in top 3 on any internet site and to my surprise many don't even include it in their list. It really is about politics. Most of those people probably never even tried Turkish food whatsoever. Asian food except India has the weirdest food in the world. I can't believe people add Vietnam to a list. Their food is plain horrendous. I tried so many Vietnamese ...more

Turkish Cuisine is the best in the whole world. It has too much varieties. I love Italian food but you know its just pasta and pizza. But Turkish Cuisine has all kinds of food from vegatables to desserts and if you still didn't taste Turkish Delight, well you are missing too much things.

Amazing food. Deserves to be ranked no 1as its much better than italian and French food but its less known which is why ita ranked 5th.

8 Belgium Belgium

Belgian chocolate does it come from here - Aquastar_of_DewClan

The Moules-frites (mussels and fries) are the best, but it's just a small part of Belgium food. Here in Belgium we offer the best beer of the world ans lots of international food very appreciated by experts.


Waffles, chocolate, and moules-frites. - AliciaMae

9 United Kingdom United Kingdom The United Kingdom (UK) is a sovereign state which consists of the political and economic union of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It was a member of the European Union (EU) from 1973 to 2016. more.

Worst food ever

Everyone recognize UK, as well as USA, has the best coffee in the world, but not only, the s-called Mediterranean diet is a pure scam, British and American people are effectively more healthy than people from Southern Europe, they are built like rocks, because of their food.

Love it so much

I live in UK so don't be rude at least our food is healthier
Fish and chips are healthier than hot dogs

I could live with cheese and potatoes only. There some of my favorite foods. - AliciaMae

(Almost) Always very high quality ingredients

I love Swiss cheese at subway

11 Sweden Sweden Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. more.

Sweden has the best food


Swedish food is known all over Europe for its spicieness but not plain hot - in Sweden the kitchens use all kind of herbals from the nordic nature and combine them with wild animal meat, for ex elfs, chickens without medicals, (I think that Swedes in general are very enviromental observerant
and expecially abort their food), fresh fishes from the big rivers in this country in the north. A verk healthy kitchen, but also much interestered In the global developingen foodmarkets which could influense back and fort.

12 Georgia Georgia Georgia is a country in the Caucasus region. Located at the crossroads between Eastern Europe and Western Asia it is bounded to the west by the Black Sea, to the north by Russian Federation, to the south by Turkey and Armenia, and to the southeast by Azerbaijan. The country's capital and a largest city more.

Visit to Georgia and you see Georgia has best food in Europe and in the world

Georgian food is the best not only in Europe but in the world too but it is little country and The world's people are not familiar with the local cuisine



13 Poland Poland Poland, officially the Republic of Poland, is a country in Central Europe, bordered by Germany to the west; the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the south; Ukraine and Belarus to the east; and the Baltic Sea, Kaliningrad Oblast (a Russian exclave) and Lithuania to the north .

Must be a joke for Poland not to be in top 10

Poland should be top 5. Tried pierogi only once and I was amazed!

Poland has great food. It is located centrally and shares flavors from many regions around it. Smaczne!

Pierogis are delicious and so many different flavours from them, along with barszbz and the national soup, bigos. The cabbage stuffed with meat and rice is delicious, great to eat on Christmas and the paczki are so powdery and sweet they made me feel happier than ever. Should be at least in the top 10, if not top 5.

Doesn't deserve to be 15 - Jufin

Mämmi is good

18 Malta Malta Malta, officially known as the Republic of Malta, is a Southern European island country consisting of an archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea.

Malta has a well established tradition of baking bread. One should particularly try some artisan breads. What I appreciate the most is the fact that they bake different types of bread depending on the season, which remains in compliance with changes in nature. This is a great value today.

19 Hungary Hungary Hungary is a sovereign state in Europe. It is situated in the Carpathian Basin and is bordered by Slovakia to the north, Romania to the east, Serbia to the south, Croatia to the southwest, Slovenia to the west, Austria to the northwest, and Ukraine to the northeast.

Amazing food, those porkolts and paprikash,.

I love the gulyas and paprikash!

Best food ever! so many well used spices in food like toltott kaposzta and they taste amazing!

Gulyas, porkolt, lecso, many other excellent dishes alongside with great wines (Tokaji! ).

20 Netherlands Netherlands

Although traditional Dutch cuisine is quite bland (potato and such) the country is also multicultural, which means it has many many dishes from al the guest laborers it had in the past as well as remains of the colonial days (South America and Indonesia). Never seen a country with so much variety and such high quality food!

Netherlands has amazing sweets like stroopwaffel (A cookie and syrup baked in the inside) and it also has a wide variety of seafoods and fancy restaurants.

Stroopwaffel sounds good

21 San Marino San Marino San Marino, officially the Republic of San Marino, also known as the Most Serene Republic of San Marino, is an enclaved microstate surrounded by Italy, situated on the Italian Peninsula on the northeastern side of the Apennine Mountains.

It has an area of 238,391 square kilometres and a temperate-continental climate. With over 19 million inhabitants, the country is the seventh-most-populous member state more.

It's great food. Uk has the worst food and it's above Romania, who in the world made this list

ONe of the best cuisine! The people that say romanian food is disgusting are probably mad hungarians or americans eating only burgers (no offense) - IvaAstra


Romanian food is generally tasty and substantial. Romanian people love to enjoy a full table of food and a good wine or a strong tuica(a liquor even stronger than vodka). The meals are based on pork and chicken and surrounding Easter they will eat sheep too. You can trully sense the eastern culture in their food and you will definitely enjoy if invited to dine in a romanian home because of their hospitality and desire to please their guest. For those who are not used to eat a lot,the food might seem heavy at first because of the quantity and the fat contained but you can easily choose a borsch instead or a traditional plate based on salumi and cheese. Easter and Christmas are heavenly asocciated with sarmale,mici(small grilled meat rolls) and cozonac(traditional romanian cake).They enjoy sweets,cakes,pastries and chocolate and will drink beer and wines on every ocassion. All in all I think it's a cuisine that wont disappoint you,it tastes good,will fill you up and will cheer your day ...more - Mernaya

23 Cyprus Cyprus Cyprus, officially the Republic of Cyprus, is an island country in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, off the coasts of Syria and Turkey.

A cuisine so rich as their culture, it is Greek cuisine with Turkish, French, Italian influence basically... It's just cypriot, unique... I travelled to many countries and I grew up in Czech Rep, I studied in the UK for 3 years, and during the summer of 2011 I visited Cyprus with a Greek friend of mine, the beaches the sun are nice, but I really fell in love with their food and MEZE, You have no Idea!

24 Austria Austria Austria was Celtic (Hallstadt) then as Noricum, part of the Roman Empire, Alaric, who took over Rome, studied at a monastery near Vienna. In the Middle Ages, the Holy Roman Emperors moved to Vienna, then Austria became separate. Medieval documents from Eastern Europe as far as West Ukraine were often more.


25 Scotland Scotland Scotland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom and covers the northern third of the island of Great Britain.

Because people don't know Scottish dishes, but it's quite normal to be in the top 10. If you knew of this cuisine is famous, you'd change idea about.

Delicious food restaurants in edinburgh, Scotland has it all lovely people, countryside and good food, shame about the weather

Haggis is better than any bland Italian food.

Better than the rest of UK.
