We were a group of 8 and had reservations from a few days ahead. As this was my second time visiting Maki, the bar was set in regards of what I expected - and both mine and the group's expectations were met. The only way to get the entire Maki experience is going for the 7 courses, including the wine... More

Fantastic fish. We ordered the lemon sole and halibut. They were nicely plated, with creative flavours and were really fresh. We would have gone for the set menu if it wasn't because we were rushing for our ferry to molde. Excellent service and view too. This should definitely be THE restaurant to go to when in Alesund !!

As we only had a couple of nights to eat out during our recent trip to Alesund we decided to give Maki a try. The food was stunning! The position of the restaurant is beautiful and the interior is very atmospheric. We chose the 4 and 5 course set menus, which included a delicious mackerel sishami starter and a main... More

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!

Dear Kate, I am really sorry to hear that we did not have available table for you. Unfortunatly the restaurant is small and we therefor reconmend to make a reservation some days ahead. 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
