It has been ranked at 32 for the second consecutive year. It was also named Best Restaurant in Australasia. Sydney’s Sepia (84) was anointed The One to Watch for “fastest rising” restaurant from the second tier of 51-100.

The controversial list, sponsored by S. Pellegrino, is now in its 14th year and was announced this morning in London.
While Quay (58) and Sepia (84) both in Sydney, and Brae (87, Birregurra) were last week included in the second tier of the World’s Best (51-100), the small restaurant in Melbourne’s Balaclava, run by the expat Kiwi chef Ben Shewry, remains our one international contender.
