Fragrant Wood Sorrel and Wood Ants

An unbelievable evening. 25 bites/courses, 12 pairings. Tastes that you will find no where else. This is not a place where you go if you are on a budget, you won't appreciate it. Dinner / pairings for two was just under $1,000. Was it worth it, absolutely!

This restaurant has 2 Michelin stars. Maaemo serves (only) ecological, seasonal Norwegian foods, prepared, refined and combined to a gourmet level. They serve a complete set menu, and you can choose a matching wine menu, a matching non-alcoholic menu consisting of an amazing range of juices and tea, or you can choose a bottle or two of wine a la...

A visit at Maemo is an introduction to a world of tastes that you have never experienced before. Beautiful flavors presented in imaginative ways with waiting of a quality you seldom see. At least two stars and the best restaurant in Oslo.

Maaemo deserves it's two stars. The food and plating were exquisite, and the wine pairing was perfect. What made Maaemo so special for us was the attentive, gracious and personal service we received from everyone. With the sign taken down for repairs, the restaurant is very hard to find. The maître d' must know this, because he met us outside... More

This may have been the most expensive meal that we have even eaten -- at the cost of about $600 per person -- but it was also among the best that we have eaten. Everything was extraordinary. We were served over 24 dishes. Each was delicious with lots of unusual combinations and ingredients from ants and reindeer heart -- but... More

A incredible journey through natural norvegian produces. This dinner has been a surprise from the start to the end. Fantastic food, excellent service, young and dynamic brigade, modern setup. Maaemo is definitely on the top list of the gastronomical restaurants we made so far. I recommend the matching wine menu.

This restaurant can be tricky to find, but is well worth finding. The service is fabulous without being overwhelming; a difficult balance to strike. The food is just delightful and the wine pairings are perfect. It is an evening to remember.

It's a gastronomic and visual story told over 20 courses. Each story prepared, inspected and served by highly professional staffmembers. In short: the food and wine was excellent. The location is good, right by the city centre. Reservation is needed.
