However, while there are no exact figures on the number of restaurants and eateries operating in each city, the disparity in numbers shown here affords an interesting point for discussion. According to the Yellow Pages listings in March 2018, Canberra has the highest number of restaurants, at 267.30 per 100,000 persons.
