In a first, chefs and restaurateurs from 500 venues across the nation have named the nation's top restaurants and their standout peers. The results have formed a list of the country's top 100 restaurants. Sydney's Sepia has been ranked first in The Australian Financial Review Australia's Top Restaurants, and the venue's head Martin Benn has been named the country's top chef.

Chief restaurant critic for the Sydney Morning Herald and award director Terry Durack said the top 100 is a brilliant cross-section of Australian dining today, from inventive high-end restaurants to neighbourly late-nite locals.
