The restaurant of famed French chef Paul Bocuse has reportedly lost its three-star Michelin rating, stirring controversy.

L’Auberge du Pont de Collonges, known simply as Paul Bocuse, had held its crème de la crème rating since 1965 – a world record.

But the Michelin Guide said the food quality was “no longer at the level of three stars”.

A BBC report says it will now have two.

The family of Bocuse – a culinary icon in France – have said they were “upset” by the decision.

The Michelin Guide’s head Gwendal Poullenec visited the restaurant near Lyon on Thursday, January 17, 2020 to deliver the news.

Bocuse, who died in 2018 at 91, was a household name in France.

He was the head of an international food empire and known as the “pope” of cooking in his home country.

The restaurant’s loss of a highly coveted third star has reportedly shocked France and drawn confusion and outrage from various food critics around the world.

This well-known Food critic Périco Légasse called it “an absurd and unfair decision”, arguing that critics agreed the quality of food had improved since Bocuse’s death.
