2nd time at Maemo. We reserved our table 5 months in advance. 16 dishes based on Norwegian tradition with the recommended wine menu. Marvelous dishes served by a highly proffesional staff. They did really deliver and we where defenetly not disapointed. This has to be...More

What a magnificent tour de force. Foraged ingredients, seasonal produce and just brilliant cooking. Worth the journey in its own right. Very upset that all white wines were 12degrees. Really not good enough at this sort of restaurant and at these prices.

Best resturant experience ever. Was lucky enough to get the chambre separee on my girlfriends 30th birthday. This is a dining experience that we will never forget. Prices were as high as expected, but totally worth it. Would rather spend that amount again than spending...More

We were there on a wednesday evening, at 6pm. 17 courses, absolutely flabbergasting. No need to go into details, just huge congrat's to the whole team: about twenty master chefs, flying around tables, just to make us feel like part of their dream: "friluftstliv", litterally...More

Maaemo seems to take pride in being hard to find, though practically in the city center. How to get there: the address is correct, but the restaurant is in a large modern building on the first floor (not ground, the European first floor). If you...More

Three hours dinner with experimental food inspired by Norwegian nature. 12 different wines. Sharp, edgy, cool, minimal, amazing experience.

I guess I'm lucky enough to have eaten here twice, four years apart. Just two of the dishes were the same. Both meals were memorable, though in 2014 there was a lot more DRAMA in the way everything was presented and served (choice of plates,...More

I would say it's not very suitable for children, at least not children under five years old. Not because of the food, but because it's many hours waiting for the more then 20 dishes that are served. it's also a rather quiet... More
