One of the best meals I have ever had

So yes, the price is steep, I mean really steep. Yes, the wine pairing is also steep but seriously, this was one of the best meals and wine pairing I have ever had. Everything was delicious, from the Jerusalem artichokes to the reindeer to the delicious wine pairing. Seriously worth it if you... read more

So this place has two Michelin stars and the dinner set course has 20 dishes! That sounds like a wonderful reason to come. The thing I will remember is not only the food but also the marketing and the service. I feel that this was really world class. The marketing is superb from the start with the discussion about the...

Fantastic evening! Excellent service from the moment we arrived at the restaurant, calm and nice atmosphere, and amazing food and drinks. Also got to have a look into the kitchen and talk to the staff. Absolutely worth a visit if you`re a foodie ;)

Dining experiences are as important a part of our travel as tours and cultural events. Maaemo was even beyond our already high expectations based upon its reputation. From the warm arrival greeting to departure, it was the most amazing culinary and wine-pairing adventure. So many courses, so many interesting tastes, visuals, smells that I cannot begin to describe. I highly... More

This was a treat for my partner (and me I guess) for his birthday. we were seated at a corner table which had a spotlight softly on the whole table. All the tables were individually lit like this making the room cosy with great ambience. We sat down and were explained the menu and drinks menu if we wished for... More

Myself and partner went here for my birthday treat and from start to finish everything could not have been better. They were even great about us getting there at 8.15pm as i had booked it for 7pm. My fault entirely got the time completely wrong. We were greeted by a member of staff who took our coats and were seated... More

Absolutely best in Norway. First the place, all pristine private tables, with perfectly acoustic and individual spot lights lighting just to the edge of the round tables. With a view over the cold and monolithic bar code in Oslo from across the station. Now the food, impressive series of some 14 or 15 dishes, all inspired from scandinavian culture sourced... More

I went to finally try Maaemo after being on the waiting list for some time. Everything was magnificent. The food very high-end and only the best of norwegian produce, fish and meat. The waitstaff is excellent and I was so lucky to be able to visit the kitchen. Very impressive. It's super expensive, but worth it.

Norways top micellin rated restaurant, with emphasis on local products and Norwegian tradition. Although they serve alacarte the 10 piece set me up with paired wine is an absolute try out. And it actually gives you more, topping out at 20 different dishes.

Just to start off, I was here almost 3 years ago. And I have to start with that it was better then! And the main problem I had with this visit was the speed of the servings. There is ALOT of dishes and when you hardly have time to swallow the last dish before the next one then it is... More
