The Orlando destination now boasts four Michelin Starred restaurants, along with numerous other restaurant recognitions 


Orlando’s evolving dining scene has been recognized with one of the world’s highest culinary honors. On June 9, the inaugural edition of the MICHELIN Guide Miami, Orlando and Tampa was revealed, with inspectors identifying four MICHELIN Starred restaurants in Orlando alone, along with notable mentions for Bib Gourmand and Recommended restaurants further distinguishing the destination’s culinary reputation. 

According to Gwendal Poullennec, international director of the MICHELIN Guides, inspectors found that Orlando had much to offer food and wine enthusiasts, with talented chefs and their committed teams creating culinary experiences matched only by the destination’s amazing attractions.  

“Michelin’s recognition of 34 Orlando restaurants, including four starred venues, seven Bib Gourmands and 23 Recommended, confirms what we in the destination have known all along — that Orlando has an exceptional culinary community,” said Casandra Matej, president and CEO of Visit Orlando. “Like so many industries in Orlando, our dining scene is fueled by creativity and ingenuity. This incredible news elevates Orlando’s entire culinary scene, and we congratulate the many Orlando restaurants recognized in this inaugural Florida selection by the MICHELIN Guide." 

Visit Orlando has created an interactive map of MICHELIN Guide Restaurants in Orlando to easily find Michelin restaurants throughout the destination.
