Dear Teacher,

What's the meaning of "This must be the restaurant" and "This got to be the restaurant"? :shock:

Whether it means "It is a restaurant" or it means "it must be that restaurant"?

Thanks a lot for your kind assistance.

Best Regards,
Cicily

This must be the restaurant. (be certain)
This has to be the restraurant. (be certain)

All of the above mean, I am certain that this building here is the restaurant that were are looking for.

All the best, :D

Say "Does it mean...?". Indeed, it means "it must be that restaurant". Some context is expected, or the sentence would be incomplete as is (eg. the restaurant in which I nearly choked to death on a fishbone"
