Berlin restaurant overtakes Schwarzwaldstube - Ikigai and 100/200 with new top rankings

The Berlin restaurant Rutz leads the restaurant rankings for Germany for the first time in July. It now has 139.8 points, 0.2 points more than the Schwarzwaldstube in Baiersbronn. The two had been tied at the top of the rankings since January 2024. The Schwarzwaldstube had been in first place since January 2023. The reason for the change at the top is the upgrading of the Rutz in Gusto to the highest score for pans with a bonus arrow. The Rutz's lead would be even greater if the July update had not introduced a slightly different points system for calculating the ranking. As a result, the Guide Michelin's green star is now only worth 0.7 points instead of the previous one, while Sonnora in Dreis and Aqua in Wolfsburg remain in third place with a gap of seven tenths.

The update primarily takes into account new ratings in Gusto and the Varta Guide. An overview of all the changes recorded for the rankings can be found here.

There are no changes in the Top 10 compared to May. As a result, Victor's Fine Dining by Christian Bau in Perl-Nennig remains in fifth place. The JAN in Munich and the Schanz in Piesport retain sixth place. The Bareiss in Baiersbronn remains in eighth place, followed by The Table in Hamburg in ninth place and the Vendôme in Bergisch Gladbach in tenth place.

In the top 20, Ikigaiin Elmau, which until recently was called Lude d'Oro with chef Christoph Rainer, jumped to 13th place. The restaurant in Schloss Elmau is a new best in the ranking due to the upgrade to ten pans in Gusto. The AURA by Alexnader Herrmann & Tobias Bätz in Wirsberg improved from 46th to 43rd place thanks to an upgrade. The 100/200 Kitchen in Hamburg climbs from 49th to 47th place and also achieves a new rating in the ranking thanks to the upgrade in Gusto.

In the Top100, Sein also improves to a new best value. The restaurant in Karlsruhe improved from 70th to 65th place in July. Tulus Lotrek in Berlin also climbs to a new record in its history. It improves from 100th to 83rd place. In the Top 200, the following restaurants also achieve new top scores: GOLVET, Berlin (118th place), Le Frankenberg Fine Dining, Weigenheim (172nd place), Veles, Nuremberg (188th place).

Details on the calculation method and how many ranking points the restaurant guides' assessments result in can be found here.

A total of 4,631 restaurants are currently listed in the ranking, which is two more than in June. Compared to the beginning of June, 116 restaurants received a higher score or were newly included in the ranking. The restaurant Dorfküche in Mettlach collects the most points in one month. 80 restaurants receive fewer points than at the beginning of June, but this is primarily due to the deduction of 0.3 points for the lower points equivalent for the green star. Inclusion in the ranking list is automatic and free of charge as soon as a restaurant is rated in one of the current restaurant guides and achieves at least 30 ranking list points.

KOMU in Munich is the restaurant that has gained the most points compared to the June 2023 ranking, followed by Brogsitter in Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler and YOSO in Andernach.
