This year’s much-awaited Michelin Guide Malta has finally been revealed and it welcomes a new Maltese restaurant in its midst.
Sliema restaurant Fernandõ Gastrotheque has been awarded the famous MICHELIN star and joins the 5 local restaurants who maintained their distinction; Bahia in Balzan, De Mondion in Imdina and ION Harbour, Noni & Under Grain in Valletta.
Meanwhile, Birgu’s Terrone, Mellieha’s Commando and Rubino & Grain Street in Valletta continue to celebrate a Michelin Bib Gourmand for the culinary efforts.
The Michelin Guide is a highly respected and influential restaurant guidebook that was first published in France in 1900. The guide uses a rigorous selection process to identify the best restaurants, and awards one to three stars to those that meet its high standards.
The recommended establishments list featured local favourites like Briju, Marea, Tartarun, The Medina, Rebekah’s, Tmun, giuseppi’s, The Fork and Cork and The Golden Fork. Meanwhile, the Michelin Guide includes the Grotto Tavern, LOA, Root 81, Hammett’s Macina, Chophouse, Caviar & Bull, KuYa, Rosami, Zest, 59 Republic, Aaron’s Kitchen, AKI, Guzé, The Harbour Club, Legligin and Ta’ Frenc.
Michelin stars are widely considered to be the most prestigious accolade a restaurant can receive, and earning even one star can have a significant impact on a restaurant’s reputation and success. You can find the Michelin-starred restaurants, Bib Gourmand recipients and recommended restaurants for free on the MICHELIN Guide website and app.
