The expectations on a three star restaurant is huge of course. Maaemo do live up to it. ALl service staff have that energy and pride you expect. The 20 so dishes challenges you, and do not take just the safe card. You will be challenged, and will not love all. But that is how it should be I believe, Some... More

I specifically made the reservation at Maaemo several months before my trip as we only had a few days in Oslo and didn't want to miss it. I'm really glad I did. The preparation of the food, the flavors, the organic sourcing, presentation, ambiance, service...it was all excellent. We were on the first seating and about half a dozen of... More

The only three stared Michelin restaurant in Scandinavia should be worth it's own trip. And that's almost what we did. a trip basically for att eat at Maaemo. We were not dissapointed. Good food, as good as excpected, with an appreciated moderate degree of inventiveness. Too much experiment can sometimes destroy the experinece. The choice of wines was perfect. Eloge... More

Very high levels in all areas. Excellent 20 dishes served by the chefs who made them. Added with pitch perfect sommeliers and interesting young wines, this was really a night to remember.

The atmosphere is warm and the food is superb, but is it all a little too much? We were there for a business dinner, and were left with half sentences and inconsistent conversation. Go for the sake of food only.

As expected, the staff are attentive to the smallest of details. Moreover, they are exceptionally knowledgeable about the local Norwegian ingredients. All ingredients are not only locally sourced, but found within a few hundred kilometers of Oslo itself. Food is exceptional.

Probably the most beautiful meal you can buy in Norway. Ecological and only Norwegian produce. International wine list. Top quality and world class creativity. Tables need to be booked 3 months in advance. But it's possible to be added to a waiting list and if you are in luck you might get a table.

Our party of four arrived at Maaemo with the greatest of expectations. The restaurant tries it best to copy Noma, perhaps pushed even further towards the arctic and the raw. The idea is nice, save for the fact that it gets lost in between the folds of the emperors new dress. Maaemo tries to be bold, but fails – the... More

I don't even have words to describe Maaemo. This was our third time, we visited shortly after the opening the first time, and all three times have been amazing. The food, the venue, the friendly staff... It's just a total experience that gives a lasting impression. Maybe the best restaurant I have ever been to in this category. A must... More

I had dreamed about going to this restaurant since it opened a few years ago and when it got its third star I wanted to go even more. If you go to a restaurant just to eat and get full, this is not the place for you. This is where you go to taste new delicious tastes in combinations never... More
