Twenty-three bars and restaurants across Melbourne and Sydney have won gongs in the Time Out Food & Drink Awards
Serai was named both Melbourne’s Best Casual Dining Venue and the city’s Restaurant of the Year. Aalia won the award for Best Fine Dining Restaurant and Restaurant of the Year for Sydney.
Presented in partnership with Tyro, the Food & Drink Awards signal the return of Time Out’s critically starred reviews, which have been given out to bars, restaurants, pubs and cafés in Sydney since 2007 and Melbourne since 2011, and were paused for two years due to Covid.
In addition to the critically judged awards, four People’s Choice awards were given out in each city, with nearly 6,000 readers voting for their favourite restaurant, café, bar and pub. In total, 14 awards were given to Melbourne venues and 13 to Sydney venues.
Winners will receive their trophies at exclusive dinner events in the two cities.
