If you appear to be near Akrobaten Pedestrian Bridge, you can go to this restaurant. Scandinavian cuisine is to the pleasure of all clients here. That's a nice idea to order perfectly cooked trout, razor clams and oysters. On the menu, you can choose good ice cream, gâteau and waffles. This place is known for delicious chianti, lager or champagne. Most likely, you'll come back to Maaemo later to degust great juice, espresso or tea.

The homely atmosphere of this place allows customers to relax after a hard working day. The well-trained staff works hard, stays positive and makes this place wonderful. Fabulous service is something that visitors note in their reviews. This spot offers you a great choice of dishes at affordable prices. Guests appreciate the chance to enjoy the beautiful decor. It's a three-star Michelin restaurant that is worth a special visit.

Great service of course as it is a 3 Star Michellen restaurant. Best dessert I've ever had. Reindeer Heart was amazing. Endless Waffles at the end was unique. The juice pairing was underwhelming.
Thank you for a phenomenal evening at Maaemo! This was the perfect way to spend my 1st evening in Oslo and we were so fortunate to get a table from the waiting list! We've been to many of the best restaurants in the world and this topped our list! Chef is a true culinary artist! Every dish like the chicken feet, king crab miso, brioche cooked in lamb fat was incredibly delicious and all the ingredients were very creative. I was hesitant trying the smoked reindeer heart porridge, but you won me over.  Alan, Charlie and the rest of the staff were impeccable and the made the experience all the more enjoyable. I wanted each of them to sit and join us for dinner when they brought out the next course.   The kitchen tour topped off with raw milk course, frozen blue cheese course, brown butter ice cream course then the waffles course were all a perfect way to end a fantastic evening!
Got to try chef Esben Holmboe Bang, the youngest chef got Michelin Star in Oslo, Norway, and the only 3 Michelin Star restaurant in Norway. What a treat, chef Holmboe Bang was kind, collected and just like a giant bear, tall and handsome! Serving you the infamous dish Caviar & Oyster, it was divine, melt in your mouth, the texture, chawannushi-like, the sauce, everything was perfectly together. This dish was what he has on the menu since Maaemo opened in 2010. Maaemo, received two Michelin stars 15 months after opening in 2010, in its first mention, and ranks 79th in the top 100 of the world's best restaurants, according to Restaurant Magazine, at the time chef Bang was only 27 years old, impressive! Getting a reservation is made even more difficult because the dining room, housed in a modern office block close to the harbour and new opera house, is tiny with just eight tables. Just like any other 3 Michelin Star restaurants around Europe, this is 1 of the hardest one to get in. So plan at least 8-12 months ahead of time. Chef Holmboe Bang dishes are amazing and meticulously thought out and played. So much respect for this chef, he has a strict policy to use local ingredients, wild, organic, sustainable or biodynamic. He got so much love and respect for Mother Earth (hint Maaemo). Ingredients are predominantly from Norway or the Nordic region. The server can explain to you where the food sources come. The meal begins with as many as small plates before you get to the first course. The Salted Aji fish was amazing. The Almond dessert was insanely light and good. The scallop, the prawn, everything was delicious. This is definitely 1 of a lifetime experience and an unforgettable meal ever! Thank you chef.
