About The Michelin Guide

Michelin is regarded as an international benchmark for gourmet dining.  A restaurant that receives one or more stars is not only regarded as the best in its country, but also one of the best restaurants in the world.  One star denotes a ‘very good restaurant in its category,’ while two stars are awarded to a restaurant offering ‘excellent cooking that is worth a detour’ and the highest rating of three stars marks ‘exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey’.

Michelin has been in the business of evaluating and recommending restaurants and hotels for over a century. They employ full-time professional inspectors who anonymously visit restaurants and hotels, and evaluate them on a range of criteria, using an evaluation process that has been honed over time to identify consistently high-quality establishments to suit a range of budgets and across a range of styles and cuisines.
