The award winning Lavaracks Restaurant
TOWNSVILLE RSL RECEIVES TOP GONG AT RESTAURANT INDUSTRY AWARDS
Lavaracks Restaurant at Townsville RSL has won the Best Restaurant in a Pub / Club or Tavern category at the 2018 Queensland & Northern Territory Savour Australia Restaurant & Catering Hostplus Awards for Excellence.
More than 150 local restaurants, cafes and catering businesses gathered to celebrate the achievements of their peers who were judged over 37 categories, with the winners announced at the Awards for Excellence ceremony held at the Royal International Convention Centre.
The Awards for Excellence is a nationally recognised, independently judged awards program that celebrates exceptional service and culinary talent across the state. The Awards for Excellence is the only program in Australia where the judging criteria is determined by consumers who rank what is important to them in the dining experience.
The Awards are judged by an independent team of trained judges who anonymously visit the venues to determine the restaurant/café winners. The scores are based on the entire dining experience from food to the customer service experienced when the judges anonymously dine.
R&CA CEO Juliana Payne says, “Townsville RSL should be proud of their achievements. Running a hospitality business isn’t easy – there’s a lot of blood, sweat and tears that goes into to making it work. But when you get the right mix of staff, produce and service, the results can be extraordinary.”
Lavaracks Restaurant in Townsville RSL may compete with other region finalists at the National Savour Australia Restaurant & Catering Hostplus Awards for Excellence to be held at Luna Park in Sydney on Monday 29th October 2018. Finalists will be advised of their status by late September.
