Are there any Michelin star restaurants in Australia?
Question

We’re going to Australia for a 5-week trip to celebrate our wedding anniversary and I’d love to take my wife to a really special restaurant for dinner on the day itself. Does Australia have any Michelin star restaurants?

The short answer is no, but only because Michelin doesn’t review restaurants in Australia. If they did, there would definitely be some stars scattered around this monumental country.

In Australia, they have a similar rating system called the Australian Good Food Guide Chef Hat Awards. Restaurants get rated from 0 to 20. The higher the score, the better. 

Roughly speaking, a restaurant with 12-13 points is a good restaurant. Though if you’re looking for Michelin star quality, you’ll want a restaurant with 14 or more points. The very best restaurants in Australia, with 18 or 19 points (three hats), would be similar to a three Michelin star restaurant.

Attica, in Melbourne, is a three-hat restaurant run by Ben Shewry. It’s in the top 50 restaurants in the world and features an exciting tasting menu in a low-lit moody-romantic setting.

If you’re in Sydney, Quay, by the stunning Sydney Harbour has been listed in the world’s top 50 restaurants nine times. Peter Gilmore’s contemporary Australian cuisine is presented in a uniquely Australian setting.
