Now look, Michelin-starred restaurants don’t have to set you back so much cash that you end up re-mortgaging your house, but there are some expensive options out there if you’re looking to make a splash.

Food magazine and online chef’s resource, Chef’s Pencil, recently decided to conduct a survey to find out exactly which restaurants are the most expensive. The findings are based on the price of a full tasting menu, Food and Wine notes.

Having poured over some 500 Michelin-starred menus, Chef’s Pencil reckons it has found the most expensive Michelin-starred restaurants in the world.
