Michelin Star Restaurants in Scandinavia


No restaurants in Scandinavia have three stars. That may be due to Michelin’s old fashioned rating system – or lack of visiting the region. Here we present the updated Scandinavian entries oif Michelin star restaurants in Scandinavia – and some lessons we would like to give the Michelin committee.

The Michelin Guide was issued for the first time by the French car tire producer Michelin January 24, 1900 as a guide for French car owners.


Initially the guide contained mostly garages, gas stations and motels, but gradually restaurants and hotels were included.

The guide rates the eateries by one, two or three stars, where three stars are given to excellent cuisines, worth a trip.

Two stars are given to restaurants with food worth a detour. One star is given to restaurants, very good on its own category. Bib Gourmand is a category of restaurants ‘serving good food at moderate prices’.

Copenhagen has 15 Michelin star restaurants, Stockholm 10 and Oslo 5.

In our opinion the Michelin team should have taken several more tests outside the capitals, since you’ll find several gems there as well, as you may read more about in Daily Scandinavian.

But first, let us give you the list of Scandinavian Michelin starred restaurants:

The fact that the Michelin team has made ‘research’ but not visited places outside the big cities, is certainly a drawback for a trustworthy guide.

The Daily Scandinavian team would like point to restaurants like Tango and Ree-Naa in Stavanger. And what about Bergen and Trondheim in Norway and other exciting places in both Denmark and Sweden.
