Yep just remember once you have paid through the nose and finished your … Yep just remember once you have paid through the nose and finished your meal, there'll be a decent fish and chip shop around the corner, so you can have a proper feed and not go home hungry!



Sometimes that's true, but sometimes that's true of chain restuarants and/or non-Michelin stars.

Eating at a "fine dining" restaurant is, yes, crazy expensive compared to going to McDonalds. But the only reason you can remember what a MD cheeseburger tastes like is because you've had so many and they always taste the same.

By contrast, food like this is an experience which you will take photos of to remember how something as everyday as food can be made like science and art at the same time. Don't believe me? You've probably not done it. If you, for instance, want to take your other half out for a meal they will never forget, save up and spend the money on one of the restaurants you might find in the app.

You're not going there to stuff yourself silly. You're going there to give your tastebuds the most adventurous fork's worth of food you'll ever put in your mouth. We all know you have to pay for the best. This is what it looks like in the food world.

Nonsense, and you're part of the problem, the ones that take photos of mediocre food, we laugh at you from the kitchen and bar.

most Michelin starred places are mediocre at best, and the only reason they are in the guide is because it's a close knit community and very much an old boys club, they then go on to get extra custom just fir being in the guide, from people that know little about food, who sing the praises of the place, despite being given a below par plate of food.

There are thousands of better restaurants out there, great restaurants that won't even entertain being offered a Michelin star, because it's nothing but a marketing ploy, with thick brown envelopes changing hands.

Having worked in Michelin starred places, I wouldn't bother wasting my money in such a place, the second a star has been got, prices double or even treble to milk it for all its worth, and the sheeple still come a running.

As they say, car tyres and restaurants go hand in hand :-)

Yup. That's me.

Can't stand 'poncy' food where the food to plate ratio is 10/90 ala Masterchef and being charged a bloody fortune for "art on a plate".

10p for the app, £1000 for michelin meal :p. Heat added

List price £11.99! that's a great deal!

For all you Michelin haters, try this book. Some excellent food without the need for stars and high costs

Oh, a "you're part of the problem" post, how counter-culture of you!

I was actually talking about fine dining in general, not just Michelin star. But I've eaten in some fantastic Michelin star restuarants and yes, some not so good ones. The points all still stand about turning your nose up about food that's been designed to please, rather than to fill your stomach in a fast food restaurant that you'll never remember once you've walked out the door.

Anyway, this:

most Michelin starred places are mediocre at best



..is absolute nonsense. Eaten at them all, have you? No, you haven't. It's ironic you're being snobby around food with a reputation for being snobby itself, but there you go! Grind your axe elsewhere.

Any relevant sources to back any of this up?

Who cares? I can spend my money on what I like.

The argument you make, i.e. ultimately that you think it's a waste of money or that it doesn't represent in your view 'value for money', can apply to absolutely anything.

It's surprising that people get so offended by the harmless decision-making of others' as to how to live their life/spend their money.

Edit: and actually what you say isn't necessarily true about inflated pricing. I went to a restaurant last week (no stars, not even in the guide) and paid a very similar price to starred restaurants for a tasting menu (inner city)

One or two small questions - why and for what nefarious purpose:

This app has access to:

Identity
Uses one or more of: accounts on the device, profile data
Location
Uses the device's location
Photos / Media / Files
Uses one or more of: files on the device such as images, videos or audio, the device's external storage
Wi-Fi connection information
Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and names of connected Wi-Fi devices
Device ID & call information
Allows the app to determine the phone number and device IDs, whether a call is active and the remote number connected by a call
Other
receive data from Internet


That's precisely why it's only 10p - no thanks. oO

Good value at 10p.. although they visit less restaurants in the Midlands than they do in the South of France.

I think it is a missed offer. Those using this app have full wallets, so £11 for app was cheap to them anyway.
Not worth me spending 10p as not going to use it. Fine dining is good just to show off (remember to take selfie), not to fill stomach.

identity = to confirm you have bought the app and licences to use it and to also likely have a profile for you within the app for your reviews, saved places etc
location = will find places to eat near by
photos / media / files = you can write a review and add pictures
wifi connection information = can see if you have wifi connection for updating the app
device id and call information = it allows you to call the restaurant through the app, and will need to know if the phone is already active so it can pass the number to your dialer.
other = well derrrr, how else will it get information

I get it now, it's a portmanteau; genuinely couldn't see it at the time. thanks

wow someone is bitter

so many ppl seem to care more of how other ppl choose to spend their money
just because a establishment is mentioned in this guide does not mean it has to be expensive

Disagree with the general theme of this post. I've eaten in around 7-10 starred places, some were fantastic, some were not as good. Luck of the draw though, like anything.

Funnily enough one of the best lunches i've ever had was in a restaurant in Edinburgh which had lost it's star the previous year.

It's meant to be a guide, use it as that and make your own decisions.
