This year’s edition of the highly anticipated MICHELIN Guide Malta has finally been launched, and it’s brought along some new additions!

The guide features 40 restaurants situated all around Malta and Gozo, 1 of which has been awarded two MICHELIN stars, 6 of which have been awarded one MICHELIN Star and 5 of which have been awarded a MICHELIN Bib Gourmand. The remaining 28 restaurants are a part of the MICHELIN Guide Malta 2024.

MICHELIN Stars are awarded to the best restaurants around the world, with a single restaurant being capable of receiving anywhere from one to three stars at one time. This honour remains bestowed upon an establishment for a year, after which point inspectors re-assess the restaurants.

The Bib Gourmand, whilst not quite a star, is still an extremely prestigious title. Such an honour recognises friendly establishments that serve good food at moderate prices.

Now, onto the winners.

ION Harbour by Simon Rogan has received not one but TWO MICHELIN Stars, a first for a Maltese restaurant.

The remaining restaurants that have retained their one star are as follows: Fernandõ Gastrotheque (Sliema), Under Grain (Valletta), Noni (Valletta), De Mondion (Mdina), Bahia (Balzan). For the first time this year, Rosami (St Julian's) has received one star!

Last year's MICHELIN Bib Gourmand restaurants have retained their title. These are Grain Street (Valletta), Terrone (Birgu), Rubino (Valletta), and Commando (Mellieha). However, this year AYU (Gzira) has also been added to Bib Gourmand list! 

Five new additions have been made to the MICHELIN Guide Malta: One 80 St Christopher Street (Valletta), Terroir (H'Attard), Kaiseki (Valletta), Level Nine by Oliver Glowing (Mgarr, Gozo), Al Sale (Xaghra, Gozo).
