The freshest ingredients
Founder and chef Ole Jonny Hjelmeseth has a great passion for finding ever new ways to prepare the freshest ingredients – and in this case that means fish caught overnight or very early the same morning.
Restaurant MAKI is part of Hotel Brosundet. The exterior wall of Apotekergata 5 drops straight down into the Brosund sound. This is the true heart of the town of Ålesund. Just as in days of old, from the windows of the building – originally a warehouse – you can still see boats sailing in and out of the sound, and fishing boats delivering their catch.
At Restaurant MAKI we believe in the value of a positive surprise. The open-plan design enables guests to watch as the chefs conjure up the fish dishes that have made us famous. The visual impressions and, not least, the delicious aromas, whet the appetite.
At Restaurant MAKI we serve a new menu every month. Our eight-course Chef's menu, based on the catch of the day, is spoken of with awe and reverence by gourmets and competitors alike.
Our waiter will be pleased to talk you through the menu: perhaps the Jerusalem artichoke soup with mussels; halibut steamed with ginger and chilli; grilled monkfish with ratatouille, broccolini and a shellfish sauce; beetroot granité with a Szechuan flower; ling with cauliflower cream and lightly pickled red onion; or cod tongue tempura?
For dessert what about blackcurrant pannacotta with aniseed and mint, home-made ice cream with port-marinated plums or a selection of local cheeses from Tingvoll served with nuts and honey? Your wish is our command!
You can also opt for a four- to five-course menu, or choose exactly what you want from the à la carte menu. The open-plan design enables guests to watch as the chefs conjure up the fish dishes that have made us famous. Our sommelier will be pleased to suggest suitable wines to complement your menu choices.
We look forward to welcoming you!
