About the MICHELIN Guide
 

The iconic MICHELIN Guide showcases incredible dining experiences in culinary destinations. First created in 1900 as a guide for motorists exploring the French countryside, the guide has expanded to over 35 countries, awarding more than 3,275 of its prestigious stars to top restaurants around the globe.

How the MICHELIN Guide Selection Works
 

The MICHELIN Guide ratings are awarded by a group of expert inspectors, who are professional culinary critics trained in the MICHELIN Guide method. The inspectors are anonymous and behave like any other customer in the restaurant. They then use a consistent set of criteria to judge the quality of the establishment.

Restaurants may receive one, two or three MICHELIN Guide stars based on five criteria:

  1. Quality of ingredients 
  2. Mastery of the cooking 
  3. Harmony of the flavors
  4. Artistry of the Chef as reflected in the cuisine 
  5. Consistency, both over time and across the entire menu

Beyond the star ratings, MICHELIN Guide also awards Bib Gourmand, Recommended and Green Star recognitions.
