Yes, it is a very unique adventure and experience. When was the last time you had ants in one of your dishes; and we did. Creative dishes with 'hard to find' local ingredients and using unique cooking/preparation techniques at a hefty price. It is not...More

We had 15 courses and they were all superb! We enjoyed each and every one of them and did not leave feeling stuffed! The presentation, the taste, the atmosphere contribute to a uniquely memorable experience. I recommend Maeemo highly and with no hesitation!

Maaemo means mother earth in old Norse and delivers a unique experience like nothing I have experienced before. The dishes are perfectly balanced and very well presented. You would perhaps expect a high-end restaurant like this to be stiff and very formal? Not at all,...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.
