A small beachside restaurant in South Africa has won the title of best restaurant in the world! The honor was given at the Inaugural World Restaurant Awards in Paris this week.
The restaurant is called Wolfgat and it is located in the fishing village of Paternoster on the West coast of South Africa.
The six-person staff has no formal training. They serve a seven-course tasting menu for $60. The tiny space can only serve 20 people at a time.

The most heartwarming welcome back after a whirlwind trip to Paris: song and dance by St Augustine primary school and members of the Paternoster community. So incredibly special. Thank you. #Wolfgat #Paternoster #worldrestaurantawards #offmapdestination @worldrestawards #disnwolfgatding
The head chef said Wolfgat serves “predominantly seafood, and then we enhance that with some indigenous pickings that we find seasonally around the village including wild herbs and succulent seaweeds.”
