The downtown-located eating establishment is the first one outside Oslo to have been given the award.

Gourmet police have not ventured outside the capital before. Their actions have now also put Stavanger on the Nordic eating map.

Clément Bertrand, Manager of RE-NAA, says that being in the Michelin Guide is “merveilleux” (marvellous).

“This follows six years of hard work,” he tells The Foreigner. “The restaurant opened in November 2009, at which time I was employed as a sommelier (wine waiter).”

“I’m still serving customers and advising on wine, as being in touch with the guests is important,” adds Monsieur Bertrand.

The company also runs two other eating establishments in Stavanger: Renaa Matbaren and Renaa Xpress. Sven Erik Renaa is RE-NAA’s Head Chef.

RE-NAA, which focuses on using locally-produced organic and top quality ingredients, was not the only restaurant in Norway to have set a Michelin record this year.

Oslo’s Maaemo was awarded yet another star, making it the Scandinavian country’s first-ever three-starred one.

Kontrast, also in Oslo, was given its first star. It was the third and final restaurant to receive an award in this category.

The red eaters’ bible also gives so-termed bib gourmand rankings, which list options for affordable and enjoyable meals.

Michelin unveiled its second 2016 Hotel & Restaurant Guide for the Nordic Countries at a press conference at the five-star Hotel d’Angleterre in Copenhagen, Wednesday.

This year’s edition includes 125 hotels and 241 restaurants in seven cities across Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden.
