The World's 50 Best Restaurants in 2017 were announced at the Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne last night, with New York eatery Eleven Madison Park named the world's best and the first U.S. restaurant to claim top spot since 2004.

Last years winner, Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy, just missed out on winning again but came in second this year, and Girona restaurant El Celler de Can Roca (2013 & 2015 winner) rounded out the top three.

Australia fared reasonably well in the awards with Melbourne's Attica coming in at 32 (up from 33 last year), and regional Victorian restaurant Brae breaking into the top 50 for the first time ranked 44.

Judged by a panel of more than 1,000 food experts from all over the world, this was the 15th year of the World's 50 Best Restaurant awards and the first time it has been hosted in Melbourne.
