If you’re all about fine dining restaurants, you might want to head to tiny King Island soon.

As per news.com.au, Tripadvisor just named its 2022 Travellers’ Choice Awards winners, ranking restaurants based on the quality and quantity of reviews and ratings between July 1st 2021 and June 30th 2022.

And Wild Harvest took out the coveted top spot in Australia. Located in Grassy on King Island, the restaurant is renowned for its ‘sea to table’ food, and offers beautiful ocean views and fresh local produce. What more do you really need?

Wild Harvest was followed by Pokolbin’s EXP., with Port Douglas spot Melaleuca and Orange’s Charred Kitchen & Bar coming in third and fourth respectively.

Australia’s major cities didn’t fare well, with Sydney’s Japanese joint Sokyo being the only one to make it into the Top 10. You can check out the full list here.

When it came to the Global Top 25 countdown, though, Australia didn’t make the cut. The winners were calculated by an algorithm analysing millions of reviews and ratings throughout the above time period from travellers around the world.

For the second consecutive year, The Old Stamp House Restaurant – a Michelin-starred spot in Lancashire – came out on top. Known for its rare breed meats and foraged goods, it probably also helps that the restaurant’s housed in the former office of legendary poet William Wordsworth, which is always going to attract a lot of attention.
