Michelin Red Guide is a gastronomic ranking made by the tire manufacturer Michelin. According to the guide, one star means that the restaurant offers high quality food. Two, according to the guide, mean that the planned route can be changed in order to visit the restaurant. Three stars are awarded to restaurants that are worth traveling specifically for.

Michelin Guide is published in 34 countries. This is one of the most famous gourmet travel guides. To get into the rating means to gain recognition in the world of haute cuisine. In addition to restaurants, the rating includes bars, hotels and guesthouses. Each location on the site has a photo and a small description.
