Mures Tasmania Receives Top Gong at Restaurant Awards


Mures Tasmania has won the Best Tourism Restaurant category with Mures Upper Deck winning Best Seafood Restaurant category for the second year running at the 2018 Victoria & Tasmania Savour Australia Restaurant & Catering Hostplus Awards for Excellence. The awards were held on Monday 30th July.

Directors and Restaurant and Catering Australia (R&CA) members, Will and Jude Mure were present to accept the awards and said “It’s humbling to be honoured with these awards by this panel of industry influencers who understand the challenges and opportunities facing businesses today.” Will Mure added “A huge thank you to each and every member of the Mures’ team. It’s through their passion, hard work and continued commitment to quality that Mures can keep on providing our guests and customers with excellent food and services across all aspects of our family’s business.”

More than 100 local restaurants, cafes and catering businesses gathered to celebrate the achievements of their peers who were judged over 35 categories, with the winners announced at the Awards for Excellence ceremony held at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition 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, Mures Tasmania 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.” 

Mures Tasmania 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 29thOctober 2018. Finalists will be advised of their status by late September.
