Michelin Guide Results 2016: full list

Looking for the Michelin Guide 2017 results? Click here.

Still considered by many to be the ultimate restaurant guide, a nod from Michelin can turn even the remotest restaurant into a popular dining destination and add perennial appeal to venues in otherwise seasonal locations.

There were seventeen new entries in 2015, with fifteen restaurants being awarded their first star. The announcement yielded some interesting regional results, with both Newcastle and Leeds gaining their first stars in some years. Northern Ireland fared well, with Belfast now holding two Michelin stars, while down in the Republic of Ireland, Dublin lost two stars, gained a new one and there was a new star won for Galway by Loam.

While there were no new entries into the two and three star categories last year, the 2016 list sees two restaurants awarded two Michelin stars. These restaurants, Umu and The Araki, are both Mayfair-based Japanese restaurants – perhaps unsurprising given the growing popularity of Japanese fine dining around the world and the guide’s growing presence in Japan.
