Maaemo is one of the two 3-Michelin starred restaurants in the Nordic area. We booked the place a couple of months before - two couples. It's easier to find a table if you are more than two people because the restaurant has very few tables and most visitors come here as couples. The whole experience lasted approximately 3.5 hours (from... More

Top level restaurant!! Selection of raw materials, preparation and presentation of food and service were just outstanding. Among The Best dining experience in my Life. Only questionable detail is price...but it's a kind of 5-starred restaurant in one of the most expensive towns...just obvious!

Though the food was great, the service was not at all good. Far from 3-star restaurant material in that sense. When you pay this much, one should expect impeccable service - and this was not good.

This was a business meal at a 3 star Michelin restaurant in Oslo - I believe the only three star restaurant in Norway. An amazing experience - 20 small course with locally sourced food, prepared with such attention to detail. The wine parings were excellent and interesting. Service - impeccable! A truly amazing evening that totally titallated the senses!

We tried the Tuesday evening Banquet 5 course menu and it was brilliant. The food in Taza is so tasty and the portion sizes generous. We last visited in March and had almost forgotten how much we enjoyed this dining experience. We will definitely not wait another nine months before eating there again.

This is by far the best restaurant in Norway. Though there are many great restaurants in Oslo, but this is the only one that is truly world class.

It has to stop,it has gone far enough now. Not everybody can be Noma, and Maaemo is for sure not, no matter how hard they try. If you want to spend four months prepearing a tartar, make sure its worth the time and effort, instead of the dish ending up as, well, a tartar and a semi interresting story. Don't... More

I have visited Maaemo many times over the years, sometimes the experience has been top notch, other times the experience falls flat. On a visit in September all was well, and it lived up to its three Michelin stars. My latest visit, in the middle of December, was less impressive. Some dishes were very good, some ok, but others failed... More

A great culinary presentation of Norway! Our dinner consisted of 20 dishes made from fresh and seasonal Norwegian ingredients. My favourite of the evening was their take on the classic sour cream porridge, served with grated dried reindeer heart. Wine menu was good and well paired.
