    From here, up from 13th last year.

    Nice to see he's finally starting to get the respect that he deserves.

    Full list of the top 10:

    Also on the list are Flower Drum (33) and Rockpool (42).

    Hehe, in my family we have a tradition of picking a nice restaurant to try out (well it was just down to 2 of us in Sydney for my birthday).

    My sister tried to pull the trick of, let's go to Tetsuya's ... but I won't pay for it .. we'll split the bill. 'I pay for you as your birthday dinner, and you pay for me as a late birthday present'.

    Hmmmmmm... nice try. Although I'd still like someone to take me there :lol: Damn me for being single again :Pirate:

    A mate of mine went to the Fat Duck last week for his birthday.

    Had a 20 course! meal including such dishes as snail porridge, bacon & eggs icecream, salmon with liquorice and many other crazy and whacky dishes. Took about 5 hours to eat, but they loved it.

    I was staying near the Fat Duck a few weeks back, and was looking for a restaurant in the area with my wife. Unfortunately their menu is a little too creative for me, so I opted for the Waterside Inn just down the road, which ranked 19th in this survey. It was great! Dinner for two with the cheapest wine on the menu was about AUD$700.

    Have also eaten at Gordon Ramsay's, which was the finest dining experience ever. Really good night out and the food was tremendous. Unfortunately the portion sizes were a little small, and I went to Burger King on the way home. Cost was around AUD$600, again with cheap wine.

    I keep the reciepts to remind me of the successful times in life. :)

    Thats actually very good value for money at that level. The fat duck is about 100 pounds ($300 AUD), el Bulli is around $200 USD ($250) and French Laundry is about $200 USD as well. Curiously, the first few entries are all relatively cheap, the "standard" price for a meal at that level typically runs closer to $300 - $350 USD.

    Tetsuyas is probably the easiest to get into as well. I don't know about the Fat Duck but The French Laundry books out a week worth of bookings in 4 hours and el bulli books out an astounding 6 months worth of bookings in one day.

    It's his own style, kinda Japanese, kinda French I guess.. different to what you'll have had elsewhere. Fantastic food, I went there about a year ago. Not sure if I'd pay the money to go to Tetsuya's again, but I'd pay similar money to experience another restaurant at the same level. Just not every weekend. :)

    Gordon Ramsay - what a champ. Do you get to hear him swearing and abusing people while dining? :)

    Any other Aussie restaurants get a mention?
