Number 4 in our list of the top ten restaurants of Australia is Mark Best's Marque. In its second year in the World Top 100 Restaurants list it came in it at number 70 and was also awarded 2011 Restaurant of the Year by the SMH Good Food Guide. Self described as a modest family run restaurant it seats 50 people and the front of the house is run by Best's wife Valerie.
The menu is predominantly French influenced that delivers highly intelligent and original flavour combinations. New age techniques are used but without ego and only when relevant to amplifying the best aspects of an ingredient in a dish. An excellent wine list is matched expertly to the menu. Marque puts on a personable yet world class dining experience in all aspects and is deservedly one of Australia's best restaurants.
