    Any experience with Australian Good Food Guide

    I had a phone call from an editor of the Australian Good Food Guide saying that they were getting lot of inquiries about our restaurant, that we were in top 3 in our area on tripadvisor .She wanted to talk to me and update our details, menus, put my bio on etc. She also said for a fee of less than $2000 year we can be featured as a restaurant of the month and advertised throughout the year . I have looked up and only 4 restaurants out of 50+ in my area are there. It is not the Sydney morning heralds food guide but I am sure It will give as exposure . The boss is ok with spending the money on advertisement , but I don't want to get excited about it. Did anybody else had to deal with them? Any first hand experience and info will be appreciated

    We have an AGFG hat, 12/20 even though they've never reviewed us. I don't pay much attention to it. I'm suss on a guide that charges the Restaurants not those that buy the guide. It may help boost business though

    I think that Agfg reaches more people than the Sydney morning Herald guide in terms of National coverage and $2000 is not bad ,plus its a buisness expense.Give it a year and see if you can survey guests as to whether they were exposed to Agfg or not.Dont see there is much to lose if funds are not an issue.
