Where or what for this sentence I would like to know which is correct to use, where or what. Where is the best restaurant in the world? What is the best restaurant in the world? Sorry for the basic question, but I would like to know which is more natural to hear. I feel both are used, though.

Karl, you explained it. Jesse only gave examples, without an actual explanation, which therefore needed a bit of interpretation.

Jesse M. Holmes got it. I did not see his comment when I typed mine. He gave in fact more choices. Yes both are correct and natural.
