“Australians are known to be active travellers and lovers of great food. We’re excited to give our customers the ability to discover great restaurants and book a table at some of the most exclusive overseas dining locations,” Asia Pacific vice president at OpenTable Lisa Hasen said.

“With latest figures from the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade showing that more than 9.7 million Australians travelled overseas up to November 2015, we are confident that OpenTable can continue to facilitate fantastic dining experiences for this growing audience.”

With the new upgrade, Australian diners will also be able manage bookings through their local OpenTable account, as well as review restaurants.
