Michelin-starred Restaurants in Norway

The Michelin Guide 2014 includes a total of five stars divided among four Norwegian restaurants, all situated in the capital city of Oslo.

Maaemo

Maaemo is the first ever restaurant in Scandinavia to receive two stars in the Michelin Guide on its first rating, only 14 months after opening in its sparkling glass locale near Oslo central station.

The seasonal menu is based on 100% organic local ingredients, including rare Norwegian herbs and berries. The food is complemented by an exciting wine list.

Cheap it ain’t (the nine-course menu alone will set you more than NOK 2000, and that’s before you have added drinks) but you get what you pay for - a truly exceptional dining experience.

Address: Schweigaards gate 15 B, 0191 Oslo
Phone: +47 91 99 48 05
E-mail: booking@maaemo.no
Web: maaemo.no 

Statholdergaarden

Each day chefs Bent Stiansen and Torbjørn Forster create a six-course gourmet menu full of surprises. The menu varies according to the time of the year and they pride themselves on using Norwegian produce when it is at its best.

The set menu includes three starters, usually fish and/or shellfish, before moving on to the main meat course, cheese, and dessert. You can choose fewer courses if desired. In addition, Statholdergaarden also has a long à la carte menu. The cuisine is based on the best European food traditions, with touches of inspiration from other areas of the world.

Address: Rådhusgaten 11, 0151 Oslo

Ylajali

Led by chef Even Ramsvik, Ylajali received its much-anticipated Michelin star in 2014. The restaurant takes its name from a character in Knut Hamsun's novel "Sult" ("Hunger"), who in the novel lives on the floor above where the restaurant is situated today.

This is no à la carte restaurant, and as such Ylajali has no menu for the guests to choose from. Instead, the restaurant tries to focus on the meal as a complete and comprehensive experience, dividing it up as if a book into a prolog, four chapters, and an epilog.

The 23-course meal spread over six servings is based on seasonal produce and other top-notch ingredients and is priced at NOK 1550, with an additional NOK 1250 for the optional wine menu especially designed to fit the meal.

Ylajali is closed Sundays and Mondays, and accepts online booking for up to 8 people. For larger groups and special dietary requirements, please email the restaurant.

Address: St. Olavs Plass 2, 0165 Oslo

Fauna

Restaurant Fauna received its first Michelin star less than a year after opening in the summer of 2013 and is a less formal place than other restaurants in its class. Dress in jeans and a t-shirt, and you won't be turned away here. A relaxing atmosphere, no matter the occasion, is a stated goal for the restaurant.

The prices are relaxed too. A five-course set menu will set you back NOK 750, but if you want more, an add-on is available for an additional NOK 150. The matching wine/drinks menu is NOK 695, and that too has an optional add-on priced at NOK 150.

For the chefs at Fauna, the most important thing is the quality of the food and the ingredients it is based on. To ensure their complete freedom in developing the food and the menu, no particular style or direction has been chosen for Fauna's cuisine, though they do try to use local ingredients where possible.

Fauna is closed Sundays and Mondays, and most of July.
