Top Ten Countries In Europe With the Best Food


The Top Ten

1 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.

Among the best pastries in the world, the best sauces, the best sweets, the best meats, fishes (form Atlantic, Mediterranean for the mainland and lots more with including islands..).

France it's also lots of different regional cuisines.
Lots of different tastes coming from other territories and also Caribbean, Polynesian, from French Guiana, Reunion etc.
Also in France, aside from its great diversity of tastes and flavors of its cuisine, you will find lots of cuisines from more than 85 other countries.
Which makes France the first European Country with so many choices.
Without missing the fact of the native country of modern cuisine, now presents in any country.
The only problem of French food is that they are not known as they should. People know only snails, frogs and mussels, but definitively French are just rarely eating those kind of foods and in a complete different manner that they are known abroad.
Just France deserves its official 1st place, ...more

2 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.


Liu Chiu-long.

Restaurants can provide you a good meal and pizzeria's are ready to satisfy you the apetite with all kinds of pizza's. Note: avoid pakistani,chinese and arab pizzeria's-they are filth and not safe. Sea food can be found anywhere and they take pride in their panettone(traditional italian cake) and local chocolates and candies. Lasagna is the best thing I've ever tasted and accompanied by a red wine it's heaven on earth. Ravioli,tortellini and gnocchi are some good stuff you have to try if you visit Italy. Prices can be peppered but it doesn't matter since they prepare it for you once you order it(either a male cook or a nice italian lady who will start mixing flour and ingredients) and surely you don't regret it in the end! Food is not heavy! Wines are great! And venetian grappa is very strong and tasty. Avoid frozen pre prepared food from the supermarkets as sometimes you can have the bad luck to find expired stuff despite being on term on paper. If you are not happy with this you can ...more - Mernaya

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.

They just copied Italian food.

Behind Italy, not possible, Spanish foods are much better, in Spain there are 40% more tourists and they come for the famous Spanish foods.

Best food in the world, Paella.

4 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.

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

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

A large variety of food from German food to kebab.

I've been there and they eat a lot of beef and bread. In Bavaria they have this bavarian sandwich wrapped up in bavarian flag pattern and contains a big piece of beef and two slices of bread.. no ketchup,no seasoning,no salt,no pepper.. just a damn piece of meat with two slices of bread. Other then that I've seen a lot of variations of pasta with sauce(beef of course). Not my favorite place to enjoy a good meal. Except beer.. They have all kinds of immaginable and unimaginable sorts of beer. And let's not forget about chocolates. Good tasty chocolates,candies and pastries. - Mernaya

7 Turkey Turkey Turkey was established on October 29th, 1923. It is located in Westernmost Asia or Southeastern Europe. 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.

If you don't vote for Turkey, that means you've never been in Turkey... (just taste the food in its own place, even not to mention about fake doner owners)

8 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.

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.

Worst food ever

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

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.

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

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

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

Highly underrated. People who tried it are always amazed.
The big variety of sausages and ham, pierogi, bigos, polish style pancakes (nalesniki), a lot of soups (my favorite is zurek)... and from the south the silisian cuisine with dumplings, beef roll, baked and roasted duck, mushroom-sauce and gravy, potato salad etc.

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 Romania Romania Romania is a sovereign state located in Southeastern Europe It borders the Black Sea, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Hungary, Serbia, and Moldova. 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


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

20 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!
