The Age Good Food Guide 2017 showcase the best places to eat in Melbourne, and throughout regional Victoria...For 36 years the release of Australia's most prestigious restaurant bible has been the biggest event on the local food calendar. We scour Victoria to find great places to eat. Only the very best restaurants are featured in the Guide. To be listed, a restaurant must score a minimum of 12 points out of 20. The very best restaurants are awarded the coveted chef's hats - a sign of consistency and excellence. We make some tough calls and some bold ones, without fear or favour, tackling local legends and up-and-comers alike. Some don't make the cut. Our reviewers dine anonymously and pay for their meals to deliver independent advice you can trust.
