Best European restaurant MICHELIN Guide: Italy
Italy is famous for its huge contributions to the worlds of art, architecture, fashion, opera, literature, design, and film – the list goes on, and we haven’t even mentioned the contribution to the Best European restaurant scene.
The big news in 2019 is that Italy has a new three-star restaurant, Michelin’s highest honor!
Uliassi, located in Senigallia on Italy’s Adriatic coast, finally has it’s long-awaited three stars after spending several years at the two-star level.
According to restaurant blog Fine Dining Lovers. Run by sister and brother team Catia and Mauro Uliassi, the restaurant puts a heavy focus on seafood and offers both tasting menus and a la carte dining. Uliassi is now one of nine other three-star restaurants in Italy. This means that all of last year’s three-star destinations maintained their status, including famed Modena restaurant Osteria Francescana.
There are now 367 starred Best European restaurant Michelin, up from 356 last year.
There were no new two-star restaurants on the list this year. The guide does include a whopping 29 new one-star restaurants from more than two dozen Italian municipalities. This brings the total to 318. Overall, the guide features 367 starred restaurants, up from 356 last year.

Best European restaurant MICHELIN Guide: Netherlands
The Netherlands (or Holland) may be a small country, but it’s packed with world famous icons. Beautiful bulb fields, windmills, cheese markets, wooden shoes, canals of Amsterdam, masterpieces of Old Masters, Delft Blue earthenware, innovative water-management and millions of bicycles. And thank goodness for the bicycles. With the 2019 MICHELIN Guide for the Netherlands having a total of 571 restaurants and 263 hotels. You’re going to need the workout.
This year’s selection features two new two-starred restaurants and 12 establishments receiving one star for the first time.
There are now 89 one-starred restaurants in total. At Derozario in Helmond, Jermain De Rozario puts his own spin on Indonesian cuisine. At Restaurant Monarh in Tilburg, Paul Kappe entices diners with his modern cuisine coupled with intense flavors, just like Jeroen Brouwer at De Loohoeve in Schoonloo and Thomas Van Santvoort at Flicka in Kerkdriel. The intensity of flavors is also what characterizes the inventiveness deployed by Jim and Mike Cornelissen at Rijnzicht in Doornenburg, and it’s the delicacy of the dishes offered at OONIVOO in Uden. For lovers of good food in luxury surroundings, Bougainville in Amsterdam, and Voltaire in Leersum are absolute musts.
Where to catch a train
Amsterdam Central Station is the main train station and is the real heart of the city: central not only by the name, but also as the biggest public transport transfer spot, so it would be a good place to catch a train too.
Best European restaurant MICHELIN Guide: Spain
Madrid is the capital of Spain and the largest municipality in both the Community of Madrid and Spain as a whole.
Madrid is a cultural feast. It was the heartbeat of the 1920s. Visited by literary greats such as Ernest Hemingway and the Fitzgeralds, F Scott and Zelda, among others.
It has a food market scene to love, but the Michelin Star restaurants are not ones to miss either!
Before you head to your first one, we suggest you start your evening off with cocktails from the broody Museo Chicote bar. The spot is one of Hemingway’s haunts and here you find his favorite drinks, and a few dozen others you probably haven’t tried. Head there early before the crowds pick up.
Where to Eat?
Madrid has around 3,100 restaurants, but a select few have been awarded stars by the renowned Michelin Guide. There are 16 restaurants in Madrid awarded with Michelin stars: DiverXO (three stars); Santceloni, La Terraza del Casino, Sergi Arola, Ramon Freixa Madrid and El Club Allard (two stars); and Kabuki, Kabuki Wellington, DSTAgE, Álbora, La Cabra and Punto MX (one star). In addition, on the outskirts of the city one restaurant (Coque) has two stars and there are three one-star restaurants: Casa José, Chirón and Montia. All of them serve world-class food and offer excellent service.
Our top Michelin star restaurant selection in Madrid city is DiverXO (3 Fabulous stars!)
The creations of Chef David Muñoz have impressed gourmets worldwide. Coolness, bravery and creativity are the key to success of DiverXO. This restaurant’s menu changes with the season, but only has two possibilities. The XOW Menu and Menu Glotón XOW. Both the menus offer the same food, and only vary in quantity and price.
Getting There: The best way to get to this pick of Best European restaurant is by Metro and then getting off in Tetuan Station (Line 1).
