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

We were staying in the hotel above and got in quite late. We didn't have a reservation and they initially couldn't fit us in (there was a big boat festival on) however they rang 5 minutes later to say they had room. We were travelling with our children and they were quite prompt bringing out their food (there was no... 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!

Our (five-hour) dinner at Maki was probably one of the highlights of our trip to Norway. We ate dinner here in June of 2014, during a stop on our cruise. Since our ship didn't leave port until midnight, we thought we'd take the opportunity to experience local cuisine. The restaurant is in the lower level of the Hotel Brosundet, right... More

Bad experience here. They seem to cater to large groups to the detriment of couples. We noticed as guests of the hotel that large groups were given preferential seating nearest windows. On the night we ate at Maki, we were seated and waited patiently for 15 minutes while a large group sat down after us. They were immediately served bread,... More
