The way this works is simple. Inspectors award Michelin stars to “unparalleled cuisine” and restaurants can receive one to three stars, depending on how impressive they are.

As for Bib Gourmand ratings, it’s given to restaurants that serve high-quality food and good price points, and the Michelin Green Star is given to restaurants that are involved in “sustainable gastronomy.”

According to Michelin’s historical methodology, selection is based on five universal criteria: 1) quality products; 2) the mastery of flavours; 3) the mastery of cooking techniques; 4) the personality of the chef in the cuisine; 5) consistency between each visit.

Are you surprised by who made the list?
