Arrana Cleans Up At The Restaurant & Catering Industry Awards
Taking out three awards in the Regional NSW category, Arrana won:
- Contemporary Australian Restaurant – Formal
- Premium Dining
And the major award:
- RESTAURANT OF THE YEAR
The Awards for Excellence is a nationally recognised program that celebrates exceptional service and culinary talent across the state.
Restaurants are assessed on the entire dining experience including, food, beverage, service and restaurant presentation. Caterers are assessed on all aspects of their catering business including operations, food, service, staffing and event/site outcomes to determine the catering category winners.
Restaurants, cafés and catering businesses gathered to celebrate the achievements of their peers and the announcement of the award winners at Le Montage by Navarra Collection on the 30 October 2023.
Business owner and Manager, Leisa Cabban, said that she was thrilled at the result and very grateful to the Restaurant and Catering association for acknowledging Arrana in such a way. These awards are a phenomenal result for us. Our team, lead by executive chef, Daniel Cabban, works tirelessly to ensure that all our guests have a memorable experience every time they dine with us. They deserve this recognition. And to receive the major award of NSW Regional Restaurant of the Year is an massive honour!
There were some stellar restaurants that we were competing against for these awards, so be considered alongside them is a huge testament to how far our restaurant has come in it’s three years since opening.
The awards night on Monday showcased what New South Wales has to offer in terms of quality hospitality businesses. We now move on to the National Awards on 20th November and what an honour it will be to celebrate our success with other hospitality industry professionals from all over Australia. We are very excited!
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our local community in the Blue Mountains for their constant support. We’ve been so well supported by locals since we opened and so many of our return guests are now good friends to us.
We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the State. We have so much to offer; the scenery is second to none and the people who live here make it even more special for tourists when they come to visit.
R&CA CEO Suresh Manickam says, Arrana should be proud of this achievement and their commitment to food and service excellence.
