Michelin Guide Rating In Dubai Announced
Updated on 21 June 2022

The Michelin Guide, the most reputable culinary grade in the food industry, has launched its first Dubai guide.

Originally launched in 1920 in Paris, the guide is currently found in 38 culinary destinations around the world, and offers residents and tourists a guide to the best restaurants to dine at.

Known for visiting and reviewing restaurants anonymously, judges assess the restaurants on the basis of five criteria, quality of the ingredients, mastery of the cooking, the balance of flavours, the personality of the chef throughout the cuisine and the consistency of the menu as well as the cooking at various times.

Initially launched by awarding restaurants with one star, in 1936 the Michelin stars were launched to have a range of distinctions, with one star awarded to restaurants with high-quality cooking that is worth a stop, two stars for excellent cooking that is worth the detour and three stars awarded for exceptional cooking that is worth a trip to the restaurant.

The first ever Dubai selection was announced today, and 11 restaurants have received Michelin stars, 9 receiving one Michelin star and 2 receiving two Michelin stars.

The 2 restaurants received two Michelin stars are:

  • Il Ristorante - Niki Romito
  • STAY by Yannick Alleno

The 9 restaurants that received one Michelin star including:

  • 11 Woodfire
  • Al Muntaha
  • Armani Ristorante
  • Hakkasan
  • Höseki
  • Ossiano
  • Tasca by José Avillez
  • Torno Subito
  • Trèsind Studio

Additionally, 14 restaurants were noted as Bib Gourmand restaurants, which offer diners a value-for-money gourmet experience and 69 restaurants in Dubai were recommended by the Michelin Guide to dine at.

The 'Welcome and Service Award' was given to Bait Maryam in Jumeirah Lake Towers and her family, for their excellent hospitality while serving at the restaurant as well as for making the dining experience all the more enjoyable.

Lowe was awarded the 'Michelin Green Star' for offering diners delicious sustainable dining.

Solemann Haddad from Moonrise received the 'Young Chef Award' and Danijela Tesic from Ossiano received the 'Sommelier Award'.

For a full list of all the restaurants on the first-ever Dubai Michelin Guide, visit the Michelin Guide website.
