ABOUT THE JUDGES
Mystery judges are eating their way across the divine Sunshine Coast restaurant scene to determine the best in the business. Led by head judge Travis Schultz, five other anonymous judges have been selected to visit multiple restaurants each month and submit their thoughts in a review.
All six judges come from successful food, wine, hospitality or beverage backgrounds, with extensive experience and knowledge in the industry in order to provide a knowledgeable review. Mr Schultz’s role of head judge is to assist in moderation and assessment by the judges, and to assist in giving guidance where required as to the application of a predetermined set of criteria to an individual venue.
The integrity of the awards requires that judges maintain confidentiality.
Judges are not to identify themselves as a judge while dining at any venue.
When the award winners are announced, all judges will be publicly identified and published.
Mr Schultz said the awards were a first for the Coast region and would highlight the culinary success on our doorstep. The leading restaurants will also be featured in an exclusive publication titled The Best Restaurants on the Coast which will be printed at the end of the year.
