What makes a restaurant a favourite? Often it can be the experience itself, who you're with and why. The food should be great and the service too. But a favourite restaurant should also be reliable, a place you can comfortably recommend to others.

With the brisbanetimes.com.au Queensland Good Food Guide 2013 due to be published in April, votes are currently being taken for one of the most sought-after awards: the Diners' Choice.

"The Diners' Choice Award is unique,"says Queensland Good Food Guide editor Natascha Mirosch.

"It's diners who support restaurants day-in, day-out, not reviewers and this is the opportunity for regulars to be able to reward their favourite."

We've shortlisted 30 of the most popular restaurants from around the state, representing a range of cuisines, dining styles and price points. Now it's over to you.  We'd like you to let us know which one is your pick!

The restaurant that receives the most votes will be named the 4BC Diners' Choice Restaurant for 2013.
