The Delicious 100 is the Sunday Mail’s first annual ranking of Queensland’s 100 most delicious restaurants.
For the first time, delicious.100 recognises the most delicious restaurants in Queensland. With 100 memorable places to eat in this state, including a huge number of world-class regional eateries, it is clear Queensland is in the midst of a food revolution.Unlike other best restaurant lists, the delicious. 100 is not about stiff, white table cloths, flashy silver service and tome-like drinks lists. As its name suggests, it’s about deliciousness.
A team of Sunday Mail food writers searched for truly memorable meals where flavour was front and centre, backed up by adept service, an enticing atmosphere and drinks you’d be happy to quaff. With the only rule that venues be open for dinner, it was about finding the tastiest food in a place you’d want to tell your friends about.
Restaurants showcasing Barambah Wines feature significantly on the list, including:
- Esquire (3)
- GOMA (4)
- Long Apron, Montville (6)
- The Wolfe (7)
- Blackbird (9)
- La Lune (18)
- Tartufo (24)
- Balfour Kitchen (41)
- Bacchus (70)
Barambah Wines will also feature on the menu at Belle Epoque, opening soon in the new Southpoint complex in South Brisbane.

Queensland wines are lagging behind the rest of the country, or so it seems. Of the more than 2500 vineyards in Australia, there are only 100 in the state.
But while Queensland may have the least vineyards out of all the states, the ones we do have are real performers.
Uncorked and Cultivated Master of wine, Peter Scudamore-Smith, said you have to look outside of the traditional varieties to see the real performers in Queensland.
“If you look at the champion wine of the Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show in Mildura last year, it was a Queensland producer,” Scudamore-Smith said. And while it wasn’t an entirely Queensland grown grape, the Queenslander behind the wine is working wonders.
“I wouldn’t call that man behind the curve, it’s cutting edge, he’s dealing with varieties that are new to this country and he’s doing equal or better than the rest of the country.
“His name is Ray Costanza and he’s the winemaker at Golden Grove in the Granite belt.”
Other producers around the state are attracting notoriety from nationally recognised experts, such as wine critic James Halliday.
