Welcome

The Carême Guide is not a random list of restaurants, but an expertly rated review of only the best culinary offerings available in each territory. Restaurants neither pay to be included – nor does Carême accept advertising from them.

The team at Carême spends up to 2 years reviewing and rating a country before publishing a guide. Every property is visited incognito by expert inspectors, a minimum of three times (or more); the inspectors behave as regular guests and never reveal they represent the Carême Restaurant Guide. This inspection largely focuses on the guest experience and the consistency in service, not just the physical facilities and quality of the meal.

Only facilities that meet the Carême Restaurant Guide’s rigorous standards are rated and listed in both the restaurant guide and on the website. The review process is on-going and deteriorating, poorly managed establishments are deleted and new or rising restaurants are included.

A Carême Restaurant Guide listing and review constitutes a positive quality recommendation; every listing is an accolade, a valued recognition of achievement.
