The chef saved some food specially for us when we arrived late and was so worried that the food would not be absolutely perfect for us. It was still incredibly delicious and you could definitely taste the dedication that had been put into it! I cant wait to return and would definitely recommend the cheese cake!!

We heard this was a great place and tried 3 times to eat there. I think they just like group bookings. The last time we were turned away passed by at 7:30 and it looked vacant enough. Disappointed!

We have both groups and smaller table, but if the restauant is fully booked at 8 o'clock there will not be enough time to eat at 7:30.... More

The meal and service were fantastic. We are a family of 4 with 2 children 10 and 7yrs. We all loved the food and couldn't fault any dish from starters to mains- seafood and meat. We found the service to be attentive and friendly with out being overly familiar. Lovely location. Hands down best meal in Scandinavia. My only criticism... More

During our tour of Norway we decided to go to Maki after reading many positive reviews. We have enjoyed restaurants around the globe, and Maki so far is the hands down winner when it comes to seafood. It all starts with the right ingredients (as the chef will tell you), and the staff then prepares and serves them to perfection.... More

The meal at Maki was an exceptional example of high quality Norwegian cuisine. We dined as a group of two couples and enjoyed the tasting menu highlighting locally sourced fish and produce. The meal was prepared with precision and presented with aplomb. A particularly nice touch was the introduction of each course by the chef preparing that dish. All of... More

Took about 25 minutes to be served between courses because waitrons seemed to disappear and walk past without clearing your plates. The menu had little variety as well.

3 ladies - two from Oslo, had a fantastic restaurant experience at Maki. A perfect table with view of Brosundet - two very nice and serviceminded waiters - and the best 5 course dinner. The food, atmosphere and the friendliness made this a fantastic evening!
