The Test Kitchen, Eat Out’s reigning Restaurant of the Year, has been recognised in TripAdvisor’s 2015 Traveller’s Choice Awards, on the list of the 25 Best Fine Dining Restaurants – World, which was released yesterday.
The Woodstock restaurant comes in at number 22 on the list – just two spots behind Noma, which is currently the third best restaurant in the world, according to The World’s 50 Best Restaurants competition judged by independent judges. The Test Kitchen is currently number 28 on the World’s 50 Best list Restaurants.
TripAdvisor’s list was based on user reviews, collated by an algorithm that measured both the quality and quantity of reviews for a particular restaurant over the past year.
The list differs substantially to The World’s 50 Best list. Their number-one restaurant, Spain’s El Cellar de Can Roca, comes in at number 11 on TripAdvisor’s list. According to TripAdvisor reviews, Spain’s Martin Berasategui, is tops. They serve modern Spanish cuisine that 50 Best describe as, “creative but less conceptual than a lot of the other Spanish chefs on the list”.
Well done to the whole Test Kitchen team!
