A great restaurant - interesting well presented food and attentive service. The kitchen tour before the desserts was a nice touch.

I was lucky to get a table on short notice and decided to go and try Oslos only 2M star place. You should be aware that they are these dishes are very innovative, and some are actually very over creative. But they need to sharpen up. When we came, we expected to use some time, but had (twice) to ask... More

Had the pleasure of eating at Maaemo during our vacation in Scandinavia and it was quite the experience. The restaurant itself is small with the kitchen on the second level. The main dining room probably doesn't have more than 8 tablets. It doesn't feel crowded however as the tables are well spaced. Service was excellent from our arrival to the... More

I had the honor of being invited with a friend to eat at the Chefs Table experience. This is a table right outside of the newly renovated kitchen, where you will be able to see the whole process they go through to bring you the food you're eating. This is a service that is only available on request and availability.... More

This is an experience you certainly wont forget. Been eating here on numerous occations and havent been disappointed once. They deliver on all the important aspects from the moment you book your table. Unbeliavable service and top food. I see many complain about the price. If you cant afford it dont eat here. This is worth every penny. Will go... More

...as either A: you'll be too jealous, or B: you should spend your time trying to book a table sometime in the foreseeable future. (We waited months...) I read an interview today with the owner of Danish Noma, another restaurant with 2 stars in the Michelin universe. He had observed guests literally crying over certain dishes at his place. Well,...

It is what one would expect from a 2 star Michelin restaurant. An incredible experience of flavours, smells, texture, presentation and service. Some of the flavours and combinations one might not ever tried before, but here is the chance to try so. Unexpected and exciting experiences serve at every single small bite (and there's about 27 of them). Highly recommended... More

It was humid, I felt sweaty, dirty and tired after a long day and really did not feel like eating at a 2 star michelin restaurant. How wrong was I. From the moment we arrived, I changed to a completely different person feeling welcomed, pampered and formost appreciated as a guest. I have eaten at quite a lot of star... More

Maaemo is the only restaurant in Norway to earn two michelin stars. This, and the fact that it's almost constantly booked 60 days in advance, does what it can to prevent people from eating here. Price and availability. Should you however decide to do the booking two months before, and be ready to pay the price for the meal you're... More

Just a quick review of the veggie menu they did just for me. I was very impressed, the courses were well thought out, with much based on the 'meat' version but all veggie. They must have put a great deal of work into it, amd I was very impressed. The food was delicious, though my favourite course was the brad... More
