Flanders may be small in size, but our region has some of the biggest restaurants. In the 2017 edition of the prestigious Michelin Guide, 11 new Belgian restaurants – 9 of which are in Flanders – were awarded a star.
Meanwhile, Hof van Cleve and Hertog Jan, both situated in Flanders as well, kept their 3 stars along with their leading positions.
As a result, the total number of Belgian restaurants with one or more Michelin stars is an impressive 143. What is more, 179 dining addresses in Belgium received a Bib Gourmand, which rates top menus under EUR 37.
