Not one additional eating establishment in the capital measures up to its stringent standards. The three that have made it into the global opus retain last year’s classifications.

Maaemo at Schweigaards gate 15B has two of three stars, and three red forks and spoons – on a scale of one to five.

According to the Guide, two stars “denote excellent cuisine, skillfully and carefully crafted dishes of outstanding quality. Worth a detour.”

The colour and number of spoons and forks refer to comfort-level (black) and pleasantness (red), respectively

Statholdegaarden at Rådhusgate 11 has one star – indicating “a very good restaurant in its category, offering cuisine prepared to a consistently high standard, a good place to stop on your journey” – and three red forks and spoons.

Bygdøy Allé 3’s Bagatelle gets one star and four black forks and spoons.

The three-stars rewarding, “exceptional cuisine where diners eat extremely well, often superbly, distinctive dishes are precisely executed, using superlative ingredients, worth a special journey”, were not dished out.

Three places go the so-termed ‘Bib Gourmand’, which denotes restaurants offering "good food at moderate prices".

These are Lille B at Bygdøy Allé 3, Restaurant Eik at Universitetsgata 11, and Tordenskioldsgate 6A’s Oro Bar & Grill.

Stockholm has eight Michelin-starred restaurants and eight ‘Bib Gourmand’ ones, with Copenhagen having 13 and 13, respectively.
