2012 Readers’ Choice Awards: Best Restaurant
With sweeping views of Sydney’s Opera House and Harbour Bridge, Peter Gilmore as executive chef and the coveted three-hat rating, it’s no wonder this multi-award-winning restaurant has again been voted Best Restaurant by you.
The impressive location at the Overseas Passenger Terminal in The Rocks is undoubtedly a highlight; however it’s the food that has you raving. In particular, the “unbeatable” and “truly out of this world” white nectarine snow egg was a staunch favourite, although the rest of the menu and service were also dubbed faultless.
As one reader notes, “Peter Gilmore doesn’t make food, he delivers an unforgettable experience”. Quay has just been voted Number 29 on the S. Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants, making it The Best Restaurant in Australasia for the third year in a row. quay.com.au
Second-time finalists Rockpool Bar &Grill (rockpool.com), Aria, Sydney (ariarestaurant.com) and Japanese-inspired Tetsuya’s (tetsuyas.com) cemented their position as the cream of Sydney’s culinary crop, followed by new favourite Guillaume at Bennelong (guillaumeatbennelong.com.au), set within the Opera House.
