Michelin inspectors have given Switzerland a new three-starred restaurant, bestowing their highest honour on Le Cheval Blanc in Basel.

Located in the Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois, the restaurant helmed by chef Peter Knogl was given its third star in the 2016 edition of the Michelin Guide to Switzerland.

"From a classic basis, Peter Knogl has developed a real personality that is brilliantly reflected in his cuisine," said Michelin's international director, Michael Ellis, in a statement.

"His refined, gourmet dishes have subtle aromas that offer a burst of flavour and a unique richness. A meal at Le Cheval Blanc is a unique experience, worth the trip."

Thirteen new restaurants were also awarded their first star in the latest guide.

In total, Switzerland now has three triple-Michelin-starred restaurants; 18 two-star restaurants, and 95 one-star restaurants.
