The Awards for Excellence is a nationally recognised, independently judged awards program that celebrates exceptional service and culinary talent across Australia. As the authoritative guide to Australia’s best restaurants and caterers, the event recognises and promotes industry best practice, celebrating hospitality operators who provide exceptional service, demonstrate culinary excellence, and deliver great ambience and value for money.

The Awards saw more than 170 local restaurants, cafés and catering businesses judged across 35 categories, and over 520 guests attending the event at Peninsula, Docklands.

Restaurant and Catering Australia CEO John Hart congratulated all of those who won in their category:

“The winners should be proud of their achievements. The culinary experiences in Victoria and Tasmania are world-class. The winners tonight make a significant contribution to the industry and our reputation as a destination for great food. I thank all the operators who participate in the Awards for Excellence program for their passion, commitment and dedication to their craft.”

Chair of Judges for the Awards for Excellence, Stewart White, said that it is important to note that businesses are judged using criteria established by their customers:

“The Awards for Excellence program encourages businesses to be the best they can. The winners are clearly and unequivocally scored as the best hospitality operators in their category.”
