Culinary delights are very much a part of our lifestyle at Mercedes-Benz South Africa. We appreciate the professionalism of these awards, and applaud the judges in maintaining such high standards, as we and our customers expect only the best,” said Selvin Govender, Marketing Director of Mercedes-Benz Cars.

The identities of the anonymous judges who have dined around the country with chief judge Abigail Donnelly to select this year’s nominees and ultimately, the winners, are Carianne Wilkinson of the Silwood School of Cookery and chef David Higgs.

Abigail Donnelly, Eat Out editor and chief judge: “The outstanding restaurants celebrated this year show a clever combination of consistency, evolution and playfulness. Rock ’n roll dishes have been created by these stars of the food world. The line-up, which includes regulars, reappearances and new names, proves that it’s not about trends, but rather about pure dedication.”
