We had a lovely meal here with a group of friends. The staff was great, the food exciting and delicious. The 'theatre' was great but the most memorable of the whole meal was the bread with butter with the ale that came with it. Of course it's expensive - you're in Norway - but a great experience.

This is a very good restaurant with extremely high quality, but expensive. During the visit you get a tour to the kitchen, wich shows that every detail in the food is done carefully.

We enjoyed the endless courses and pairings. Im proud of myself for eating reindeer heart. The staff was great and the showing of the kitchen was very cool.

Celebrating my daughters 40 anniversay, we (party of 5) got the test kitchen table, making the evening a special experience - as we could observe all dishes being prepared. Food - and wine pairings were outstanding. Maaemo definitely deserves the 2 Michelin stars - and we question the Michelin rating system, as our experience here surpassed many of the 3... More

Staff were excellent. Food was top rate. We got a peek in to the kitchen which was nice. The only niggle was with dietary requirements. Instead of arranging different dishes to accommodate dietary requirements which were asked for well in advance the fixed menu was served but without the issue ingredients. I understand the ethos of the restaurant but not... More

Maaemo have raised the prices while the actual amount of food (and number of servings seem to have gone down). The price now (October 2014) is NOK 2.050,- for food and 1.390,- for the wine menu, so almost three and a half thousand NOKs (four hundred and thirty or so EUR) per person. That is, by any standard, a lot... More

Without a doubt, the best restaurant in Norway, and very few restaurants (probably anywhere) come close. Modern nordic cuisine, extremely elegant dishes and top notch service. Even though this is the only Michelin 2 star restaurant in Norway, the service is very friendly and relaxed, but at the same time very proffesional. Not surprising, its expensive and to get a...

This is a restaurant for real foodies. The 20+ dishes are all presented as small pieces of art. The service is excellent and you feel very well taken care of. The price is a bit steep, but Maaemo is by far the most spectacular restaurant in Norway. Maameo has the same philosophy as Noma in Copenhagen. All the food are... More

The location is not exceptional, but we were met at the stair outside the resturant by a waitress waving at us and welcoming us. The staff was friendly, informal and present. Great. The resturant is nordic design and so is the food. The staff is from all over the world. The food was absolutely excellent all through the 24 dishes;... More

Visited Maaemo in August and was blown away. Not cheap, but worth every penny. A visit to a group of people who really loves food and wishes to share that with you. All 23 dishes we're something special, well thought out and Norwegian, a combination not Algeria easy to achieve. Highly recommended for foodies. Might not be worth the money... More
