Michelin Star Restaurants in Andalucia

Andalucia, with its fabulous, world-renowned gastronomy and bountiful and varied natural produce, has its fair share of Michelin-starred restaurants.

The region has 18 establishments boasting the highly coveted recognition from the French gastronomy bible. In total, as of the 2021 guide published in December 2020, Andalucian has 14 one-Michelin-starred restaurants, three boasting two stars, and one with three stars - the top accolade. Exactly the same as 2020.

Interestingly, a large number of these restaurants are located close to the sea – in Malaga, Marbella, Fuengirola, the Almeria coast, Cadiz, Jerez and Huelva.
