One of the best meals to get in Oslo. One well deserved Michelin star. Perfectly balanced courses in flavors and textures. Yes Maaemo is in my opinion better, but Ylajali is so damn close, more sensibly priced and easier to get a table. Wines where...More

The whole setting in an old building with perfect atmosphere and macho Nordic food- the chef Ramsvik is a genious luring us into new flavours- some completly new something known wrapped into recognizable tastes- it is art- contemporary art is expensive and provocative

Each dish a mini-masterpiece. Each plate made by a ceramic artist in modern inventive design to match the dish. Flavors soar. Wild vegetables and greens, small marinated fishes, tine balls of flavor frozen by nitrogen or diced to minuscule delights. An amazing evening of 3...More
