A Canberra restaurant has been rated amongst the top 50 places to wine and dine in Australia.
OpenTable, the world’s leading online restaurant reservations platform, compiled the list of the best eateries in the country, and while Sydney and Melbourne dominated, Canberra’s eightysix in Braddon secured a place in the list.
Every visit to eightysix is guaranteed to be different to your last, thanks to the exciting and ever-changing blackboard menu that’s built around seasonal produce.
OpenTable analysed the opinions of more than 70,000 restaurant reviews submitted by verified diners from more than 1,500 restaurants nationally to compile the list.
VP Lisa Hasen said the list showcases the diversity of Australia’s restaurant scene and the array of cuisines we’re so fortunate to have on our doorstep.
“The top 50 restaurants in Australia for 2017 are all renowned for their creativity, delicious dishes and impeccable service, providing uniquely memorable experiences to discerning diners time and time again.
“Diner reviews have always been, and will continue to be, one of our key pillars for ensuring customers discover the right dining experience for their needs.”
While Australia is known for its multicultural dishes, Asian cuisines were a standout on this year’s list with over a quarter of the restaurant featured in the top 50 representing an Asian heritage. Home to a fusion of flavours, Asian cuisine was closely followed by Modern Australian and Italian-inspired restaurants.
