Maltese restaurants to be included in the MICHELIN Guide in 2020
“The Maltese culinary scene has talents that are worthy of discovery by foodies from around the world”

Michelin has announced that our little island will be one of 32 countries that will be covered in the Michelin Guide in 2020. The respected foodie guide has been published by the French tyre company for more than a century, and awards up to three Michelin stars for excellence to a select few establishments.

Speaking of Malta’s insertion, International Director of the guides Gwendal Poullennec said, “Our mission at the MICHELIN Guide has always been to highlight the best gastronomic establishments around the world to its readers, and today the Maltese culinary scene has talents that are worthy of discovery by foodies from around the world. In the centre of the Mediterranean, Malta is a very attractive cultural destination with a unique cuisine style which beautifully combines European influences and local traditions” – high praise indeed!

According to the MICHELIN Guide website, Michelin will reveal its first Maltese selection on 26th February 2020, and we can’t wait to see which restaurants make the cut.

Meanwhile, the question on many foodies' lips is inevitable: will any local restaurants be awarded a coveted Michelin star? While it’s unlikely that many will make the grade, there have been whispers of one or two local establishments receiving 1 star, but nothing’s been confirmed yet, so we’ll just have to wait and see!
