These Are The Top 50 Restaurants In The World

The top 50 restaurants in the entire world have been announced - and only one Australian venue made the cut!

Attica restaurant in Melbourne came in at number 33 on the exclusive list, making it the only homegrown eatery to earn a mention.

The restaurant in Ripponlea specialises in Modern Australian cuisine and is lead by chef, Ben Shewry, who - ironically - hails from New Zealand.

The restaurant offers a tasting menu with ingredients sourced and grown in Australia, including "Wallaby Blood Pikelets", red kangaroo, "Gazza's Vegemite Pie", marron, and emu eggs.

Of all the dishes, the internationally acclaimed favourite is the tulips DIY. 


Patrons get to select the tulip from Attica's own garden to eat for dessert - offering a sort of interactive element to the meal.
