8 NZ eateries have been crowned in the top 1000 restaurants globally

Looks like we might need to make a booking.

Eight New Zealand restaurants are now among the world's top 1000 fine-dining experiences according to the prestigious La Liste.

La Liste determines its rankings by crunching data from thousands of publications and millions of reviews online to compare the best against the best.  

So, let’s raise a glass to New Zealand securing eight fine dining spots highlighted in the coveted list.

New Zealand restaurants on La Liste:

1. The French café - Auckland
Leading the pack is The French Café in Auckland, landing 309th spot worldwide with a stellar score of 94.5. 

Sid at The French Café is an independently owned, family-run, and serving up contemporary New Zealand cuisine.

2. Amisfield - Queenstown
With a score of 88 Amisfield is making Central Otago proud.

According to their website, Amisfield’s goal is to “create dishes that represent the work of a small group of fisherman, hunters, gatherers and farmers.”
