A market research report has revealed which Melbourne markets are the most affordable and which are the cheapest to visit.
The report has also revealed that the most popular restaurants in the CBD are the “Budget” restaurants.
The top-selling seafood market in Melbourne, in fact, is the “Saucy” restaurant in Flinders Street, Melbourne’s famous steakhouse.
Market research also revealed the top three spots in the local wine market are the five-star “Red” and the “Oyster” in Fitzroy.
The second most popular wine market is the eight-star Red.
The third most popular seafood market is in Flamingo Bay, which is the location of the local Seafood Market.
“There’s a lot of competition in the market, especially for the top restaurants, and there are lots of options,” said Market Research Manager, Mark Glynn.
“It’s an interesting challenge to work in because there are so many places that are very close to each other and that are just as good as one another.”
The report also reveals that the city’s most popular restaurant is the Four Seasons Hotel.
The restaurant has a four-star Michelin star rating, the same as the Michelin starred restaurants in Sydney and Melbourne.
The Four Seasons has been awarded five stars for its quality and service.
“In terms of price, we know the Four Season is the cheapest, and it’s also the best value in terms of what you get,” said Glynn, “but it’s really down to the quality of the seafood you get.”
The top three seafood markets in Victoria are: “Bubbles” in Melbourne’s inner west, and “Mangrove” in the western suburbs of Adelaide and Newcastle.
The best-selling wines in Melbourne Market research has also found that the “Greens” and “Horse” markets are among the top five in the city, and the top two in the country.
“They are a great combination of quality and price,” said Ms Glynn “There are a lot more places in the Melbourne market that are also very good quality.”
The markets also have a number of other restaurants that are worth a visit, such as the “Mile High” in Flushing, “The Mermaid” in Southbank, “Spirits” in Princes Crossing and “The Fish Market” in Richmond.
“The best seafood markets are in the heart of the CBD, so you’ll be able to go down to Flinders St and have a great meal at one of the best restaurants in town,” she said.
“I’m looking forward to trying a new place this weekend and I’ll be keen to try the new restaurants, especially the new ones in Richmond.”
The study is part of the Market Research Excellence Melbourne program.
It will be released next month, and will give researchers an insight into the market and the local industry.
