Once you have organised your removals to Australia and sorted out your new home, you will no doubt want to celebrate in one of the country's top restaurants. Australia has many restaurants featuring everything from southeast Asian cuisine to European and Middle Eastern food, and even barbecue meals.
However, in this article we will focus on some of the most upmarket restaurants. The country does not have any Michelin-starred restaurants, because the Michelin Guides have not yet published an Australian edition, and at present focus on other areas of the map, such as France and Hungary. Nevertheless, Australia does have restaurants which have been named as among the world's best.

Where to Eat in Australia for Fine Dining
Australia has various accolades to mark out fine dining establishments, such as gourmet traveller stars and Good Food Guide ratings. Eating at top establishments which have received these awards will not be cheap, but putting your money where your mouth is should guarantee a meal to remember.
Marque, Sydney: In a 2013 survey, the US Elite Traveller magazine named Marque as among the world's top 100 restaurants –just one of numerous awards it has received. It is run by chef Mark Best, who has worked in top kitchens in France, so it is no surprise that some of the food here has a French flavour, along with contemporary Australian dishes. The restaurant sits 50 people. Unusual items on the menu include delicacies created from ingredients like buckwheat biscuit, smoked eel and Blue Swimmer crab. There are also chicken and venison dishes, all featuring surprising combinations of flavours, and the restaurant even matches a specially chosen wine to each main course.
Jonah's Restaurant, Sydney: Set in the exclusive north beach resort of Whale Beach, this famous hotel-restaurant first opened in the 1920s, but was completely refurbished a few years ago. Many celebrities have stayed and dined here over the years, including names like Rod Stewart and Sir Mick Jagger. Chef Peter Ridland, who has worked in restaurants in France and London, serves modern Australian cuisine with the emphasis on seasonal produce. In keeping with the seaside location, fish is strongly featured on the menu, and one speciality is fruits de mer, including oysters, trout, scallops and prawns.
Attica, Melbourne: Creative flavour contrasts are always on the menu at this restaurant in the Melbourne suburb of Ripponlea. Chef Ben Shewry forages for wild produce on the coast to add an unusual note to his cooking. He and his team test out new dishes at their Chef's Table events on Tuesday nights, while their midweek and weekend tasting menus offer the chance to try a range of delicacies. Australian dishes are showcased here, with Flinders Island Wallaby among the more surprising menu items sometimes available to try.
Quay, Sydney: Spectacular views are guaranteed at the Quay, which overlooks Sydney Harbour. The food is pretty spectacular too, and has won a whole string of accolades for both the restaurant and chef Peter Gilmore. Tasting menus are offered if you would like to sample a wider range of dishes, including such unusual delights as mud crabs, roast goose and Guava snow egg.
Tetsuya’s, Sydney: Australian, Japanese and French dishes are all featured on the menu at this internationally-known restaurant, owned by Japanese-born chef Tetsuya Wakuda. Tetsuya's overlooks a Japanese garden and features sculptures and ceramics to add to the atmosphere. Dishes featuring trout, Barramundi and quail breasts are among the dishes you might find on the menu.
