The Island Hut Cafe, Mario's Pizza receive top awards at Menulog's Winter Restuarant Awards

The online delivery also recognised leading dishes from various QSRs.

Menulog has announced the winners of their 2018 Winter Restaurant Awards which hails The Island Hut Cafe as Australia’s favourite winter restaurant and Mario Pizza’s having the People’s Choice award.

The said cafe’s award was based on the number of orders, ratings and customer satisfaction they received.

 “The simple and efficient communication with Menulog has been key for us. This has allowed us to share our love of burgers with not only our local community, but also the broader customer base we’ve grown thanks to the site,” The Island Hut Cafe owner Steve Kelleher said.

As for the Mario’s Pizza, it is said that they received the most votes from Menulog users.

 “It is so rewarding to receive support from our local customers and take out the Menulog People’s Choice Award. Since partnering with Menulog, we have been able to grow our network more than we could have ever imagined - 90% of our business comes from Menulog orders,” Mario Franchina, owner of Mario’s Pizza, said.

The delivery platform also recognises several more restaurants such as Noodle & Rice Bar and Desire Indian Restaurant as the most popular restaurant in New South Wales and Queensland respectively.

They also mentioned the Cheesy burger offering of The Famished Wolf as The Best Cheap Eat and the Spanish Churros of The Schnitzel Kitchen as Best Dessert.

 “The Menulog Restaurant Awards are designed to recognise and reward the hard work of our restaurant partners, particularly those that have delivered an exceptional customer experience,” Rory Murphy, Menulog’s commercial director, said.

“With more than 11,000 restaurant partners now on the website, being crowned as a National Winner is a huge achievement, as is being voted People's Choice from hundreds of nominated restaurants," he added.
