App-etite for instruction

Check back soon for our 2013 Restaurant Guide app.

Pacojets. Thermomixes. Sous-vide machines. Immersion circulators. Useful machines all, but this month, the most useful piece of electronic gadgetry for Australian food-lovers will be the iPhone, because it's soon to be home to Australia's number-one restaurant guide. Yes indeed, the latest edition of the Gourmet Traveller Restaurant Guide, the only guide that features detailed coverage of the nation's 400 best eateries, hits the Apple App Store 7 October. Just when you thought it couldn't be a more convenient package, we've shrunk it down from handbag/briefcase dimensions to pocket-size, and at the same time, through the miracles of modern mobile technology, added new and useful features that aren't part of the printed book. The app lets you search reviews by the name of the restaurant or chef, or find reviewed restaurants near wherever you happen to be standing, which it then displays clearly on a map. You can search for a selection with a wide range of filters that includes cuisine, location, rating and opening hours, and once you've found the restaurant you want, you can book a table from inside the app directly or call the restaurant with just one tap. If you're a dreamer/planner, you can create a wish list of must-visit eateries (and then tick them off as you go along). You can also share reviews with a friend via email, Facebook or Twitter. If you're interested only in the very crème de la crème, you can jump straight to the Top Rated section to see our award-winners, Top 100, top 10s by region and, of course, the restaurants that received stars. All this and more stored conveniently in one neat little application on your iPhone.
