Number 2 in our list of the top ten restaurants of Australia is Ben Shewry's Attica. Again, the only Victorian based restaurant in Australia to make the World Top 100 list in 2011, it has climbed up the list 20 places to number 53. It is now also the second highest Australian restaurant on the list. Set in the unassuming suburbs of Melbourne, dining at Attica is all about the food. Ben Shewry delivers tantalizing combinations of unique and eclectic ingredients, some of which are foraged by Shewry himself in the morning near his home on the Bellarine peninsula. These are then prepared using elaborate techniques and an array of home-brewed technology within the kitchen of Attica. Though the wine list, setting and service is no match for most of the other restaurants on our list the heights delivered by the food elevate Attica to its current position.
