About the Michelin guide* The Michelin Guide is a series of annual guidebooks published by the French company Michelin for more than a dozen countries. The term normally refers to the Michelin Red Guide, the oldest and best-known European hotel and restaurant reference guide, which awards Michelin stars for excellence to a select few establishments. Here are the criteria for the three starred rankings: · one star: "A very good restaurant in its category" ("Une très bonne table dans sa catégorie") · two stars: "Excellent cooking, worth a detour" ("Table excellente, mérite un détour") · three stars: "Exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey" ("Une des meilleures tables, vaut le voyage").
