Michelin is pleased to announce that Malta will join the 32 countries already covered by the MICHELIN Guide in 2020. A major tourist destination, Malta has attracted the attention of Michelin’s inspectors and their forthcoming selection of the best restaurants in the country will be revealed in February 2020.
Speaking about this first Maltese selection, Gwendal POULLENNEC, International Director of the MICHELIN guides, commented: “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.”
In an effort to respect local specialities and culinary knowledge, and to value the work of passionate men and women, the inspectors of the MICHELIN Guide particularly appreciated the diversity of the cuisine to be found on the archipelago. At the crossroads of cultures, the Maltese gastronomic scene is a reflection of its rich past by marrying culinary influences from Italy, Mediterranean countries, North Africa, and also Great Britain – not to mention contemporary trends.
Michelin will reveal its first Maltese selection on 26 February 2020, and this selection will be available free-of-charge online on the digital platform: guide.michelin.com
