A lot has been written about Maaemo, so I will be brief and just summarize my main impressions. In short: this has been one of the best, and one of the three most inventive meals I ever had. Yes, it is expensive, but this is justified. Each and every single one of the more than 20 small courses that made up the menu was impressive, well thought out, perfectly executed and knowledgeably presented. The wine (and in some cases beer) pairing was inspired, topping up generous. The service is highly dedicated, yet relaxed and not stiff at all. The place is clearly heading for its third star. One warning: their concept entails that it is not easy for them to accommodate too many special requests. If you dislike many things or are allergic, specifically lactose-intolerant, I would not recommend you to go there. One of the aspects that impressed me most, was their highly innovative handling of traditional Norwegian dairy products. Obviously, these are hard to replace with lactose-free alternatives that are equally good. If you come with an open mind, this is certainly one of the most interesting places on the planet right now for food lovers.
