Best Restaurants in Sydney


Visiting Sydney soon?  A little over a month ago the Good Food Guide announced it’s list of hatted restaurants for 2019, so if food is your thing, read on!

The Australian Good Food Guide Chef Hat’s are Australia’s equivalent to Michelin Stars and have been awarded since 1982.   Taste, ingredients, presentation, technique, value, and consistency are all taken into account by the anonymous AGFG Inspectors, who give a score out of 20.

It is a huge honour for a restaurant to receive one hat – and absolutely spectacular to be awarded two or three.  Please read on to discover the best Sydney restaurants according to the Australian Good Food Guide.
