Maaemo is something special, in particular if you have time and money for an interesting dinner. This reataurant received 2 Michelin Stars just after the opening recently. The food is a surprise and you can expect some 24 courses inklusive 4-5 desserts. The restaurant is located very central in Oslo, but do not expect to get a table on the... More

Two Michelin stars. I wonder why. Excellent food up to a point. Everything was delicately prepared but there was just a wee bit too much strong sauce and chicken skin shavings on too many of them. Took away some of the individual characteristics of some of the courses. If you are going to spend this much money on food in... More

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...
