Top 10 Restaurants in Australia

Top 10 Restaurants in Australia
Destination(s): Adelaide

Barbequed meat is an Australian obsession. However, most modern Australian cuisine is a product of the diverse immigrants who have settled there – a mix of British, Mediterranean, and Asian traditions, often using local seafood and livestock (once imported, raising livestock now represents a flourishing Australian industry). Drawing on the Australian restaurant scene’s natural cosmopolitanism, we’ve rounded up a list of some of the best restaurants in Australia: Jolleys Boathouse, for modern Australian food and South Australian wine by the riverside in Adelaide; the Hairy Canary, for Mediterranean-style grub and drinks in Melbourne; Rockpool, for fresh fish, seafood, and fine dining in Sydney; Longrain, for Thai cooking, communal tables, and modern decor in Sydney and Melbourne; The Wharf Restaurant, for international food and great views of Sydney, including the famous Opera House; Jackson’s Restaurant, for eclectic fine dining in Perth; and Jasmin Indian Resturant, for north Indian-style food and an elegant setting in Adelaide. read more about Top 10 Restaurants in Australia...

Top Ten Fun Restaurants in Queensland

Top Ten Fun Restaurants in Queensland
Destination(s): Brisbane

The most entertaining dining experiences in Queensland are international by nature, although they appeal equally to crowds to locals and tourists. They each bring something specific form a different culture on Aussie grounds, so you can take advantage of all their generous culinary offerings and great specific atmosphere during your trip to Queensland. Start with the heart warming and charming atmosphere of the truly British Pig 'N' Whistle Pub, where they organize live music and trivia nights for all those interested in taking part. Another great culinary cultural ride is the one at the Sushi Station where, although the atmosphere is not as cosy at the British pub, it sure is entertaining! You get to sit in front of a rotating track with sushi dishes and pick out whichever you want, while a busy chef sitting in the middle keeps the goodies coming. However, if you are interested in a full evening of local entertainment and great food, make sure you get a reservation at Groucho's Theatre Restaurant and have dinner with a show. read more about Top Ten Fun Restaurants in Queensland...
