Vue de monde | top restaurant industry accolade!
Melbourne's Vue de monde has been awarded the industry's top accolade, Restaurant of the Year, at this year's Savour Australia Restaurant & Catering Australia Awards for Excellence.
The coveted awards were announced on October 29, 2007 at a gala dinner attended by Australia's leading restaurateurs, caterers and industry personalities at the Adelaide Convention Centre.
The Savour Australia awards are the most dependable and authoritative guide to Australia's best restaurants.
The Chair of Judges for the national awards Mr Matt Preston said arguably no other award scheme in this country could boast such a rigorous review process in which some 500 hand picked and specially trained judges with a passion for food and wine determine the winners.
Over 2,000 award finalists underwent a thorough, totally objective and independent review according to a predetermined, research - based and standardized sets of evaluation criteria.
'When you visit a Savour Australia national award winning restaurant like Vue de monde you know that you are on to a good thing - top restaurants voted by everyday Australians for everyday Australians,' Mr Preston said.
'Vue de monde is testament to the best of what Australia has to offer when it comes to eating out. 'Characterized by fine French food artfully prepared by chef Shannon Bennett and his talented team, Vue de monde offers the full package when it comes to quality food, outstanding service and an extensive wine selection, guaranteeing that you are in for a real treat and a fine dining experience,' he said.
Vue de monde is one of 34 national award winners, voted best in their category, and in their region and/or state. Mr Preston said that each national award winner embodied the great diversity of Australian dining experiences, environments, and food styles that many people found appealing irrespective of their age, background or budget.
'So, whether you are looking for fine dining or a first class caterer, the Savour Australia web site www.savouraustralia.com.au is the best guide or keep an eye out for the Savour Australia sticker which is prominently displayed by award winning restaurants,' he said.
