Top restaurants recognised in R&CA National Awards of Excellence
Cafés, restaurants and catering businesses demonstrating exceptional service, culinary excellence and value for money were recognised across 41 categories.
Tetsuya’s Restaurant in Sydney was named Restaurant of the Year, Café of the Year went to The Artisan Café in Blackwood, SA; and Caterer of the Year was awarded to Events by Aria, in Sydney.
R&CA CEO Juliana Payne congratulated each of the national award winners.
“The winners of this year’s Awards, both at a national and a state level, have each demonstrated sustained excellence in their craft which we are delighted to recognise here tonight,” she said.
“The enormous hard work, dedication and passion of these business-owners and their staff is what makes Australia’s hospitality industry up there with the best in the world. This is reflected in the fact that domestic and international tourists consistently rank dining out as one of their most preferred activities whilst on holiday.
“This year’s Awards season has been nothing short of an outstanding success and the Association is grateful for the efforts of a number of individuals who have made this all possible.
“Whilst the Awards season for 2017 is now over, we as always look forward to next year’s Awards and urge all businesses in the hospitality industry to put forward a nomination.”
