How Michelin Stars are Awarded
Michelin stars are given to restaurants that display culinary excellence by the Michelin Guide, a prestigious rating system. A restaurant can receive one, two, or three Michelin stars depending on its quality. The guide is published annually by the French company Michelin. The criteria for receiving a Michelin star are strict, and a panel of inspectors anonymously visits and rates restaurants. The inspectors consider factors such as the quality of ingredients, the mastery of cooking techniques, the level of creativity, the harmonization of flavors, the consistency of dishes, and the overall dining experience. If Michelin dining is something that would enhance your holiday experience, or perhaps it’s a pre-requisite, we’ve handpicked a selection of five and six star hotels where exquisite cuisine is very much a focal point.
