Luis Tan Bondi Food, THE F 5

Australia’s top 100 restaurants for 2017 are…

Australia’s Top Restaurants have been announced and it’s epic.

Presented by Qantas and The Australian Financial Review the top 100 eateries were revealed at a Gala Awards ceremony held at The Star.

The number one? Dan Hunter’s acclaimed Brae took the coveted number one position, followed by Attica, Ester, Sixpenny, Sepia, Franklin, Tipo 00, Embla, Automata and Hubert, in order.

In its third year, the award is the only national program of its kind, voted on by chefs and restauranteurs themselves, so you know it’s quality.

“The new top 100 shows that diversity is the great strength of Australian dining. It makes dining out so much more interesting when every experience is different rather than the same,” said Terry Durack, Co-Director and restaurant critic.

Brae was awarded the number one post of 2017, with chef-owner Dan Hunter also scooping ‘Australia’s Top Chef’ award.  It’s been a big year for Hunter, after his Birregurra restaurant was named in the World’s 50 Best list for 2017 and his first book, Brae, was launched in June.

Here’s the list of the best…
