Restaurants in Australia

Restaurants in Australia are known for their variety of international cuisine. People from many different countries have settled in Australia and have established restaurants.

For a twist on mussels, stop by Mussel Boys. Try the signature dish, a unique mélange of mussels with dill and coconut curry broth on a bed of Asian greens and rice noodles. Mussel Boys also features an extensive menu of Tasmanian wines.

For local cuisine, with a French twist, try Mojo’s. Remi Pougeard-Dulimbert and Michael Hart (who caters every two years for the summer and winter Olympics) join skills to form a dynamic cooking team. Sample such specialties as gnocchi with blue cheese and caramelized pear, spicy samosas with tamarind chutney, soft-shell prawn tacos, and scallop pie.

Australia restaurants offer excellent views. For the best views on Station Pier, dine at My Dog Café. This quirky dining joint serves us specialties for canines as well as people.

The renovations of the Stirling Hotel make the establishment a beautiful place to enjoy upmarket, regional cuisine. It is one of the best restaurants in Australia.
