The Wolfgat - whose six staff have no formal training - opened in 2016 in the small fishing village of Paternoster on the west coast of South Africa.
Head chef Kobus van der Merwe forages daily for ingredients on the seashore.
The awards, set up by one of the 50 Best Restaurants list's founders, went to mostly affordable restaurants.
The restaurant, which serves a seven-course tasting menu priced at 850 rand (£46; $60), can only feed 20 people at one sitting.
