Not long ago, San Pellegrino, the company that makes the fizzy water, awarded its “World’s 50 Best Restaurants” for 2014. While those in the culinary world often bat around similar lists like this — and all have their different rankings and likes and dislikes — all the top restaurants share something in common: beautiful and unique presentations. Many of us will most likely never find ourselves eating at all the restaurants awarded, but thanks to Instagramming foodies around the world, we can at least visually enjoy creative entrees that resemble more art than food. Unfortunately, Smell-O-Vision has yet to be perfected online, but you can at least check out some of the magazine-quality shots Instagram users have taken.

We picked some of our favorites from the San Pellegrino list’s top-10 eateries.
