The debate over Vancouver's best restaurant never stops. The conversation just got a little louder with the results of Vancouver Magazine's 2013 Restaurant Awards.

Hawksworth on West Georgia Street was named Restaurant of the Year for the second year running. Chef David Hawksworth also picked up the "Chef of the Year" award.

The magazine agreed with the Georgia Straight's Golden Plate Awards, which named Hawksworth best fine dining establishment, though Chambar took the prize for Best Overall Restaurant .

But Hawksworth didn't come close to first in Yelp.ca's survey, which named popular Indian restaurant Vij's the best in the city, followed by Cafe Medina and Guu with Garlic in Vancouver's West End.

It also didn't pass muster with TripAdvisor's readers, who made Bishop's on 4th Avenue the top-rated restaurant in the city, followed by L'Abattoir and Miku.

Check out the top restaurants in Vancouver, according to a number of lists.
