Lightspeed Customers Dominate 2023 Canada’s 100 Best Restaurant Lists

Canada's 100 Best Restaurants

Lightspeed Commerce Inc. (NYSE | TSX: LSPD) is proud to partner with 18 incredible hospitality businesses which have been named to the 2023 Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants and 50 Best Bars lists — including this year’s top restaurant in Canada, Mon Lapin (Montreal, QC). Powering the world’s best businesses, Lightspeed is the unified POS and payments platform for ambitious entrepreneurs to accelerate growth, provide the best customer experiences and become a go-to destination in their space.

Lightspeed customers feature prominently on both lists, with 16 of the top 100 restaurants and two of the top 50 bars leveraging the technology platform. Lightspeed customer success is particularly evident in Quebec, where Lightspeed Restaurant is present in 15 of the 34 Quebec-based locations featured on this year’s list. 

“This is an amazing moment for our restaurant,” said Vanya Filipovic, co-owner of Mon Lapin. “We are so grateful for all our partners, including Lightspeed, without which we would be much less efficient. We don’t have much technology at Mon Lapin, but Lightspeed is an essential tool to our well-oiled little machine.“

Other notable Lightspeed restaurants named to the list include: Beba, a cozy, Argentinian eatery located in the Montreal borough of Verdun; Arlo, an Ottawa-based establishment with a Canadiana-inspired menu and an extensive wine list; and two locations from Joe Beef (Joe Beef and Vin Papillon), a Montreal culinary institution regularly mentioned alongside the top restaurants in the world.  

“We are tremendously humbled to have two of our addresses featured amongst so many of our talented peers on the Canada’s 100 best list this year,” said James Graham-Simpkins, General Manager at Joe Beef. “We owe many thanks to all of our teams who helped us get there, including Lightspeed’s dedicated and hands-on support.” 

“I could not be more excited about the number of great Lightspeed customers that have been named to Canada’s 100 Best lists this year,” said Lightspeed CEO, JP Chauvet. “It showcases that the best hospitality venues in Canada are using Lightspeed every day, and that we’re contributing to the world-class experience that these restaurants provide. I look forward to seeing more and more Lightspeed customers on this list in the years to come.”
