Gault Millau 2014 Sydney

The 2014 Gault&Millau Sydney Restaurant Guide (The Yellow Guide), Sydney's only independent, internationally recognised restaurant guide, has arrived and is now available to the public.

More than 300 restaurants across Sydney, from casual eats through to fine dining, have been reviewed in the guide and awarded between one and five hats. Momofuku Seiobo, Quay and Sepia took out top honours, each receiving five hats placing them on the same international platform as fellow Gault&Millau five-hat recipients in Europe, Hof van Cleve (Belgium), Restaurant Guy Savoy (France), Obauer (Austria) and cementing them as truly exceptional.

As well as offering the Gault&Millau (pron. GOH -me-yoh)opinion on many of the city's firm favourites, the guide has uncovered many hidden gems including Bei Amici in Darling Point (three hats), Clareville Kiosk in Clareville (three hats), Bistro Boulevard in Avalon (three hats), Busshari in Potts Point (three hats), and Tastevin Bistro & Wine Bar in Darlinghurst (three hats).

Publisher Fritz Gubler noted that it is not just fine dining that Sydney does well, with the city playing host to some hidden gems that don't break the budget.

The Guide is divided per suburb, allowing the reader to easily locate great eateries in their desired neighbourhood, as well as offering an A-Z index for diners with a specific restaurant in mind and an index by cuisine. In addition to restaurant reviews, the guide also features Q&As with some of Sydney's leading chefs, a list of the city's best providores and a breakdown of the best restaurants based on location.

Established for more than 40 years, Gault&Millau uses the same internationally respected judging criteria world-wide, which places more of a focus on the chefs and their food and less on ambience, décor, location and etiquette than other restaurant guides.  Each restaurant is awarded points and those with 11 or more points receiving hats, ranging from one to five.


The 2014 Gault&Millau Sydney Restaurant Guide, published by Arbon Publishing, 2014, paperback,  rrp $24.95.
