Gault&Millau UAE has revealed the results of its closely guarded, anonymous investigations of the UAE’s best restaurants.
The world-famous food critique brand released its 2022 guide, along with its highly anticipated restaurant ratings, at the landmark Gault&Millau UAE 2022 Gala event held on Tuesday, June 14 at the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah.
The gala event brought together 200 of the country’s top chefs, sommeliers, and restaurateurs for an evening of celebration.
One of the world’s most established and widely respected fine dining critique brands, Gault&Millau’s revered rating system sees restaurants visited anonymously and then ranked on a scale of 1 to 20, with points awarded based on the quality of the food, service, drinks atmosphere and the restaurant itself.
Depending on that rating, restaurants are able to display between one to five toques (or chef hats), reflecting their standing in Gault&Millau’s guides. All visits by Gault&Millau critics are anonymous and fully paid for.
The gala event culminated with the special Gault&Millau UAE 2022 Awards, recognising the highest-rated restaurants and chefs in the UAE.
