Top ten

QuayAustralian restaurants are making waves globally, with 10 restaurants making it onto a new definitive list of the world’s top 1000 restaurants. The new guide—La Liste, launched by Atout France—compiles ratings and reviews across guidebooks and sites globally to give restaurants a composite ranking.

The composite rankings were created using extensive research. Each guidebook or publication had its reviews converted into a grade from zero to 100. Then each publication was itself reviewed and given a trustworthiness ranking. La Liste then calculated the average of these scores and integrated a 25% weighting for customer reviews.

France and Japan held the most places on the list, with well over 100 restaurants each. The USA, China, Germany, Spain and Italy also put up serious competition with more than 50 restaurants each.

Atout France’s Australia-New Zealand director, Patrick Benhamou, said their aim had been to create a definitive resource showcasing the world’s number ones.

“The aim of this list isn’t to pass judgement or rank gastronomic cultures, but simply to compile reviews to form one list—the best of the best when it comes to restaurants all around the world,” he said.

Australia ranked well, with four restaurants—Vue de Monde, Rockpool, Attica and Quay all making it into the top 100.
