Three restaurants in Belgium holding three Michelin stars


"All good things come in threes," the saying goes. That is what the Michelin Guide must have thought when it awarded restaurant Boury in Roeselare a third star in its 2022 edition for Belgium and Luxembourg. Even if a fourth, fifth ... a 3-star restaurant is most welcome, of course.

Tim Boury had almost given up hope. The award ceremony - live for the first time since the pandemic - at the Royal Theatre in Mons was coming to an end and the group photo was about to be taken when suddenly the great news arrived: after five years with 2 stars, Boury has reached the pinnacle in the world of gastronomy. The meticulous, near-perfect preparations, combining traditional depth and creative panache, result in a complex interplay of aromas, flavours and textures. Added to this is the warm welcome, attentive service and cosy atmosphere of this brick villa. Reason enough for the jury to add this gastronomic palace to the Belgian map of top culinary addresses. From now on, restaurant Boury will take pride of place alongside Hof van Cleve run by 3-star chef Peter Goossens in Kruisem and Zilte with Viki Geunes in Antwerp, which also has three stars.

With 141 Michelin-star establishments, there is a growing number of names in our hall of fame. This year, three restaurants were awarded a second star, 16 were thrilled to receive their first star, and finally, a new Michelin Green Star was added for sustainable gastronomy. Finally, 24 new restaurants received the Bib Gourmand for their excellent value for money.
