After just one year of being open, QT Perth's Santini Bar & Grill has been crowned the Restaurant of the Year in Western Australia's Good Food Guide Awards.
Snubbing the idea that hotel restaurants aren't a top pick for foodies, the popular bar and grill was awarded Best New Restaurant last year, not long after they opened.
"We are so honoured to be recognised by the team at the WA Good Food Guide again this year," QT Perth's Executive Chef Nic Wood said. "Taking out Restaurant of the Year is an amazing achievement amongst the high caliber talent in WA. Santini's menu has taken shape over the past year and we are proud of the food offering and service that we put forward each and every day. It truly is an entire team effort."
The menu features a simple Mediterranean style with strong Italian influences and a huge focis on using local produce. Think wood-fired ovens, homemade pasta, all topped off with a strong wine list.
"Santini is a truly great restaurant in that it is has it all - great food, great service, an epic wine list, a beautiful dining room and a great customer experience," adds Rob Broadfield, managing editor of The Western Australia Good Food Guide.
