If you are only two people traveling to Oslo to eat at Maaemo you better make your booking far in advance, because there are at least a thousand people ahead of you on the waiting list in this eight-table restaurant.
But if you do get a table here; prepare for the most amazing food and service you have ever had(Unless you have been to a place with better food and service).
Of the 18 course,s there were only two i struggled with; a very sharp tasting bluecheese-dish and the signature chicken with ForrestANTS! Not something i would have ordered myself. But several of the best things I have ever tasted we got served this evening.
The king Crab dishes were #1 and 2. Worth the visit alone!
The wine package is also a musthave. Do NOT arrive drunk, because you will be when you leave.

I had the great pleasure to dine here as part of someone's 60th birthday. Truth be told I've never dined at a restaurant that have merited 2, then 3 stars in the Michelin guide.
This being said I have to take my hat off to the amazing staff which is composed of 7(?) different nations who manage to combine a jovial Norwegian culure-friendlyness with a sharp eye for details, an exceptional knowledge about the craft and an obvious burning desire to become better.

The food is a symphony of different tastes of Norway. There are no 250g steaks of reindeer or half a Norwegian salmon on the menu, but the 10+ tasting menu offers exciting dishes on many very typical Norwegian tastes. As one of the chefs said when serving a sauce based on "fenalår": "If Norway had to be represented by a sauce - this would be it." He was right.

The tastes might be a bit too adventerous for the younger crowd, but this is truly the place of special occasions with a gathering for a small group of friends or family.

With these prices, I won't be a regular guest, but for the right occations, it's fantastic. Amazing food and great service. We were lucky enough to be seated in the test kitchen with only a window separating us from the chefs.

Was depressed with normal food for a week after visiting Maaemo. Each dish is fantastic, with an interesting story and great presentation. Feels like being on a vacation even though we were out in our hometown on a weeknight. Excellent service. Will come again!
