About Michelin Stars

For lovers of refined flavors and unforgettable experiences, Michelin-starred restaurants are a must-see on the gastronomic map of the world. And for almost every chef, being included in the Michelin culinary guide is the pinnacle of professional aspirations. The French “gourmet bible” has been an oracle for those looking for the best restaurants in the world for decades. Even one Michelin star is a huge distinction. The award increases the prestige of the restaurant and the reputation of the chef and his team. Also a reason to be proud is the Bib Gourmand badge, the green “eco” clover, the fork and the very fact of being included in the guide.


Michelin stars are awarded in three categories:

  • 3 starsand – be sure to see,
  • 2 stars – worth visiting,
  • 1 star – noteworthy.


Restaurants are rated by anonymous food critics who do not announce their visits. Inspectors verify the quality of dishes, their taste and the way they are served. In this way, they check the skills of the cooks, they also assess the atmosphere of the place, as well as the value for money. Importantly, the stars are awarded only for one year. After this time, the restaurant is verified again. One star is awarded to restaurants that are “very good and noteworthy in their category”. Two stars mean that the place is “worth visiting for the quality of food and service”. Three stars are awarded to those unique establishments that “are worth a special trip”.
