A wonderful three stars Michelin dining experience ! Maaemo offers the best of 3 stars food, beautiful room, excellent service with the friendliness and simplicity of Ccandinavian hospitality. All the food is local strongly influenced by the season. We were there during the peak of summer and it was also summer in the meal, with beautiful (and tasteful) flowers based... More

Everything about Maaemo is top notch, from the servers, to the chefs (who come down to describe each dish and invite you up to the kitchen), to the food, to the drink pairings. My son had the wine pairings and I had the juice pairings, and both were perfect. Twenty-plus courses over three and a half hours that flew by...... More

We were met already outside the restaurant and led to our table. Attentive staff made sure we were comfortable and told us about the menu. The standard menu consisted of 20 servings of food and 11 drinks. The drinks were mostly wine and one sake and one beer. It'll take way too much space and time to comment on each... More

My wife turned 40, so I had to do better than her highest expectations. One night I kept refreshing my browser around midnight until I secured a table at Maaemo. I took her to Oslo and there we were. Difficult to find but someone stepped outside the restaurant and helped us. About the evening: absolute perfection in service, but more... More

Our reservation was met with exclusive service treatment as we were sat next to the open kitchen where all the action of kitchen staff can be viewed without reservations. Each dish was a delight to the eyes, sense and taste. Server Benjamin was extremely friendly and attended to whatever questions we may have with the restaurant, chefs, food, drinks. The... More

Other reviews have posted the photos, so you've seen the amazing creativity that the Maaemo kitchen demonstrates on a nightly basis. The food is even more delicious than it looks. I'd like to take a moment to highlight the incredibly genuine and gregarious team behind that glass kitchen wall, working with intensity and tweezers to perfect each dish before it... More

There is only one menu (but you can actually get it vegetarian if you want!) and it should be enjoyed with the wine pairing. This is a place for experiencing food and not for eating a hearty dinner. (My friend was actually still kind of hungry after the visit...) Exiting dishes to taste and talk about. Worth the visit, but... More
