Africa Asia - 386 Michelin starred restaurants Australia & New Zealand Caribbean
Central America Europe - 1,807 Michelin starred restaurants Middle East North America - 128 Michelin starred restaurants
Oceania South America

THE MICHELIN GUIDE STAR & RATING SYSTEM - three stars (***) mean: "Exceptional cuisine and worth the journey"; two stars (**): "Excellent cooking and worth a detour"; one star (*): "A very good restaurant in its category"; the Bib label: "A Bib Gourmand rating means the restaurant is an inspector's favorite for good value. For $40 or less, you can enjoy two courses and a glass of wine or dessert (not including tax and gratuity)." The New SUSTAINABILITY EMBLEM (*): "Those at the forefront with their sustainable gastronomy practices are highlighted by a new symbol, with the restaurant’s vision also outlined via a quote from the chef. For other restaurants taking smaller steps to work in a greener way, there are short descriptions on their initiatives." Restaurants awarded the Rising Star (RS) means that they may be in line for a MICHELIN star, or an upgrade from one to two, or from two to three stars.

The WORLD'S 50 BEST RESTAURANTS is a list produced by UK media company William Reed Business Media, which originally appeared in the British magazine Restaurant, based on a poll of international chefs, restaurateurs, gourmands and restaurant critics. In addition to the main ranking, the organisation awards a series of special prizes for individuals and restaurants, including the One To Watch award, the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Chefs' Choice Award, the latter based on votes from the fifty head chefs from the restaurants on the previous year's list. Often working as a barometer of global gastronomic trends, the list showcases a variety of cuisines from all over the world. Restaurants voted 1-50 are marked with SP; the restaurants marked with sp have been voted as the world's 51-100 best restaurants based on the votes of the 837 "chefs, restaurateurs, critics and fun-loving gourmands" selected by Restaurant magazine.
