2016 GT Restaurant Guide Awards winners

This is the cream of dining in Australia right now, and it tastes great.

Pull up a chair, unfurl some linen, reach for a fork and raise a glass as we present the winners of the 2016 Gourmet Traveller Restaurant Awards, sponsored by Vittoria Coffee and Santa Vittoria. We've got new players looking to the old-school, the old-school infused with new cool, the movers, the makers, and the cocktail shakers. They're twisting it, flipping it, scoring it and pouring it, lighting fires, plucking leaves, filling glasses, spinning plates and going the extra mile to bring you new ways to break bread, share laughs and savour the good times at the bar and at the table.
