Discover Norway’s Michelin-starred restaurants

In 2024, three Norwegian restaurants received their first star. In addition, Re-Naa in Stavanger was upgraded to three Michelin stars, and Kontrast in Oslo was upgraded to two. As many as 20 Norwegian restaurants are now among the crème de la crème of Nordic culinary experiences.

In the 2024 Michelin Guide, the Stavanger based restaurant RE-NAA secured three stars, and now shares the top position with Maaemo.

Kontrast in Oslo was awarded a Michelin Green Star (for its sustainable practices), and head chef Mikael Svensson didn't even have time to step down from the podium before his restaurant was also upgraded to two-star, "worth a detour".

According to a press release from the Minister of Trade and Industry, Cecilie Myrseth, "Norway is a star-class culinary nation".

"I hope this will contribute to even more people recognising Norway as an exciting food destination".

Restaurants that are well worth the trip

In the culinary world, no distinction is more esteemed than being included in the Michelin Guide, which was first published in 1900.

The publication was the brainchild of tyre manufacturing brothers André and Édouard Michelin and started out as a practical guide for motorists in France. In the 1930s, the guide was geographically expanded and started to include an annual awarding of stars to Europe’s greatest restaurants.

A three-star rating in le Guide Michelin means that a restaurant is “worth a special journey”, two stars means it's “worth a detour”, and one star indicates “a very good restaurant in its category.”
