Reflections on Australia’s Dining Scene

Based on the 100 most popular restaurants on Quandoo, as booked by Quandoo diners, the most popular cuisine in Australia is Italian. This is closely followed by Australian cuisine, which can be categorised from classic café brunch food to modern restaurants inspired by international flavours. Japanese and Thai are our favourite Asian cuisines.

Melbourne is the leading city on our list – no real surprises there – housing 39 of the top 100 restaurants. Sydney boasted 26 restaurants, meanwhile Perth had 20 restaurants.

Cookie, Magic Mountain Saloon and Revolver Upstairs also ranked, three ever-popular Melbourne restaurants established by the visionary team of Camillo Ippoliti, Karen Batson and Phillip Schemnitz. You can read more about this hugely successful restaurant group here.
