Chef and restaurateur George Calombaris has teamed up with Zomato to present The GC Collection, a list of his favourite restaurants across 12 cities.

Calombaris has selected restaurants in cities around the globe including Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth to recommend to Zomato (previously Urbanspoon) users, with his recommendations available on the app and website.

“Food is my passion and I love cooking. It’s nothing but serving love on the plate. Every restaurant I selected for the collections reflects that love. They’re each outstanding and inspiring in their own unique ways, and I hope my curated collections help people discover something they love,” Calombaris said.

Some of his suggestions include:


  • Bennelong
  • The Grounds of Alexandria
  • Sepia
  • Pilu at Freshwater


  • The Town Mouse
  • Top Paddock
  • Cutler and Co
  • Vue de Monde
  • Tiba’s Lebanese


  • Africola
  • Orana
  • Rigoni’s
  • Sean’s Kitchen

  • Hatch & Co
