All the Michelin star restaurants in Oslo – 2022 edition

The full list of Oslo’s 2022 Michelin star restaurants

Every summer marks the start of foodie Christmas, as Michelin hands out its coveted stars to the world’s best restaurants. This year sees Oslo’s star rain land on three new entries – restaurants Hot Shop, Hyde and Schlägergården. Here are Oslo’s 8 Michelin stars of 2022, spread out over 6 restaurants.

Maaemo Oslo Norway restaurant

***

Maaemo

As the founder and head chef of Oslo’s only three-star Michelin restaurant, Esben Holmboe Bang has set an exceptionally high bar for himself and his team. Maaemo, a name that derives from the ancient Norse word for ‘Mother Earth’, indicated where his priorities lie. He makes sure that all produce on the set menu is either biodynamic, organic or wild. As such, Maaemo is an exploration of the Norwegian terroir. Guests are invited to enter a dramatic, dimly lit space with high vaulted ceilings, designed by local firm Radius design, that feels both sophisticated and clandestine at the same time.

Hot Shop Oslo Norway restaurant

Hot Shop – new entry

Hot Shop, named after the sex shop that formerly housed the premises, is part of Oslo’s semi-fine dining scene – an unofficial movement that serves up high-quality fair at reasonable prices in fringe locations on the outskirts of town. Founded by Jo Bøe Klakegg and Siri Haslund, partners in life and business, this casual neighbourhood bistro has a Nordic-style simple five-course dinner where local produce is front and centre. Veggies as food porn, in other words.

Hyde – new entry

At the exact address that used to house an Oslo restaurant icon – Pjoltergeist – is Hyde, another must-visit eatery in the Norwegian capital. The music, which is cranked up, and the lights, which are dimmed, give an almost nightclub-y vibe. It is in this casual setting that British chef Matthew North serves up his punchy dishes, created with a few simple quality ingredients. When you reserve a table, there’s a set menu, but if you enjoy a more spontaneous menu with smaller dishes, drop by for a spot at the bar.

Kontrast Oslo Norway restaurant

Kontrast

At New Nordic restaurant Kontrast, Swedish-born chef Mikael Svensson and his team have created deeply rooted collaborations with a number of local artisanal purveyors of vegetables, meats, sea foods and dairy products. The outcome is a menu of mid-sized dishes made with the best the region has to offer, served in a stark and hip space located in the revitalised Vulkan industrial area.

Schlägergården Oslo Norway restaurant

Schlägergården – new entry

On the outskirts of Oslo, in a listed 18th-century listed farmhouse, Swedish chef Björn Svensson opened his latest venture Schlägergården in 2021. The historic property has been painstakingly restored by architect and interior designer Kristina Line in close collaboration with the National Archives of Sweden. The vibe is casual and homey, the food is seasonal and local.

Statholdergaarden

For a Norwegian classic, head to Statholdergaarden, one of the city’s first fine dining venues and keeper of the country’s longest-standing Michelin star. The premises is a charming 17th-century house in the middle of town: all three dining rooms feature beautiful antiques, ornate stucco ceilings and antiques. Expect classic Norwegian cuisine with a contemporary French twist.
