Perth restaurant tops TripAdvisor’s restaurant awards in Australia

Friends Restaurant in Perth has maintained its top spot as Australian Fine Dining winner, while Brisbane’s George’s Paragon Seafood Restaurant has taken home a gong for Australian Everyday Dining in this year’s TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards for Restaurants.

Based on a full year of TripAdvisor reviews, these restaurants were consistently given high ratings and praise by restaurant-goers across the globe.

For dining options without the larger price tag, Brisbane-based George’s Paragon Seafood Restaurant received the top accolade, followed by Fish At The Rocks, Sydney and Grill Steak Seafood Restaurant, Melbourne.

Beijing’s TRB Hutong has been crowned the number one Fine Dining restaurant in the world, the first time a restaurant in Asia has received this honour.

“Restaurant-goers rely on candid reviews and guidance from other TripAdvisor users to discover restaurants of all types, from local hidden gems to famous restaurants all over the world,” said Bertrand Jelensperger, senior vice president for TripAdvisor Restaurants.

Contemporary Australian is the most popular cuisine across the two dining categories, followed by Japanese and Thai.

Australian diners can’t seem to get enough of a restaurant with a view, with half of the local restaurants receiving an accolade offering diners a vantage point of the water.

New South Wales has the most winning restaurants with seven restaurants across the top Australian categories.
