World's 50 Best Restaurants 2006

The 2006 list of The World's 50 Best Restaurants were announced by the UK's Restaurant Magazine last week.

El Bulli claimed pole position, forcing last year's titleholder, The Fat Duck, into second place.

Sydney was again represented by Tetsuya's which fell one spot to number five, and Rockpool, which climbed twelve spots to number 30. Seems like Neil's ponytail is no longer limp!

Melbourne's famed Chinese restaurant Flower Drum fell completely out the list this year.

The awards list, which began in 2002, is compiled by 560 reviewers around the world.
