The different starred restaurants

A three-star restaurant is a luxury establishment with exceptional cuisine and deserves a special trip; it is not something you would visit often. A two-star restaurant represents excellent food, worth a visit if you are in the neighbourhood or have a special occasion coming up; while a one-star restaurant indicates very good food, worth a visit if you are passing through or looking for an affordable place to eat.

It is therefore convenient to use this guide to choose a starred restaurant anywhere in the world. It is also possible to search on the web, on quality food blogs or on social networks.
