Gault Millau

Gault & Millau Türkiye 

Yes, you read it right! It’s now in Türkiye too!

Shaped by more than a thousand years of various culture & traditions and social heritage, Turkish cuisine has diverse and distinctive flavors. We knew how special it was, however now with worldwide guides, it’s official. We have world-class cuisine and chefs. Gault & Millau reached a total of 14 countries by adding Türkiye to its gastronomy network. It is one of the two most well-known and appreciated guides in the world of gastronomy.

Gault & Millau believes authenticity of each chef’s restaurant so they become a compass for those who would like to get the feel of gastronomy in every aspect. They bring new points of view to the gastronomy world with their unique point system and detailed evaluation.  Restaurants and chefs are rated up to 20 points in different categories such as food quality and taste, service quality, pricing, restaurant decoration, and atmosphere. High-scored restaurants win 1 to 5 chef hats according to their score.
