October 10, 2014 Social Media No Comments Email Email

TripAdvisor®, the world’s largest travel site*, today announced its annual Travellers’ Choice™ awards for restaurants across the globe.

In total, 353 fine dining restaurant winners were identified, including the top 25 in the world and dedicated lists for Asia, Canada, China, Europe, India, South America, South Pacific, the U.K. and the U.S.

“The Travellers’ Choice restaurant winners have won over the TripAdvisor community with their outstanding food, service and ambiance – the perfect ingredients for a memorable fine dining experience,” said Barbara Messing, chief marketing officer for TripAdvisor. “TripAdvisor is raising a glass to these top restaurants in the world that have delighted our community and their appetites.”

Travellers’ Choice awards honour top travel spots worldwide based on the millions of valuable reviews and opinions from TripAdvisor travellers. Award winners were determined using an algorithm that took into account the quantity and quality of reviews for restaurants worldwide, gathered over a 12-month period.

Positioned on the 55th floor of Melbourne’s iconic Rialto building, diners can enjoy a sweeping view across the city and beyond. Chef Shannon Bennett tries to create an unparalleled dining experience and has evolved the menu from classical European roots to a more natural menu.

All ingredients are sourced locally and one TripAdvisor reviewer commented, “This is unlike any other restaurant, we absolutely loved every mouthwatering meal, the beautiful French champagne, the decor, the atmosphere and the personal service from the waiters and chefs. Not to mention being served by the owner.”
