  1. Statholderens Krostue, Oslo (Reviewed July 30th 2010): BBBBB- (4,69 points)
    Stattholdergaarden is one of four restaurants awarded a Michelin star in Oslo. In the basement, you find Statholderens Krostue, where you may enjoy the same cuisine under 17th century vaults. We did, and dining here may be the best culinary experience in Oslo ever, and I have lived here for 30 years!!

  2. Basement Restaurant & Bar, Göteborg (Reviewed June 2nd 2010): BBBBB-(4,67 points)
    Last year we enjoyed a great dinner at Fond Restaurant in Göteborg. It had then been awarded one star in the prestigious Michelin guide. In April we explored another Michelin restaurant in the city, and we were most definitely seduced by the culinary witchcraft performed at Basement Restaurant & Bar.

  3. Armada Sera, Istanbul (Reviewed March 3rd 2010): BBBBB- (4,57 points)
    Armada Sera is located on the top floor of the Armada Hotel in Istanbul. It has a view to die for, and we enjoyed one of the best meals of the year here on the first night of our stay in Turkey.

  4. Beyti, Istanbul (Reviewed April 29th 2010): BBBBB- (4,47 points)
    It would definitely be in the super class of restaurants if it wasn't for the location. For city guests it is in the middle of nowhere, and do consider what options you have if staying in downtown Istanbul. Except from this, Beyti is an exquisite restaurant. Wonderful, classy interior, great service, excellent food and wine.

  5. Uno Chicago Grill, Cambridge MA (Reviewed November 24th 2010): BBBB+ (4,44 points)
    Uno Chicago Grill, Cambridge is part of a chain of restaurants found in 14 states throughout the US. They specialize in American specials as pizza, steaks, pasta, and burgers. I chose one of their new inventions, flat bread pizzas and was not disappointed.

  6. Sjöbaren, Göteborg (Reviewed June 10th 2010): BBBB+ (4.43 points)
    A perfect place for lunch or dinner. The rooms are very small and be prepared to share the limited space with many guests, as Sjöbaren seemed to be an extremely popular place.

  7. Adonin Café & Bar, Istanbul (Reviewed January 6th 2010): BBBB+ (4,42 points)
    One of our many good culinary experiences in Istanbul. Great location and less pushy personell than you can experience when looking for a place to eat in the area.

  8. Vognmand Nilsen, Oslo (Reviewed March 28th 2010): BBBB+ (4,40 points)
    I had booked a table at 4 PM at Vognmand Nilsen, as I had dined there only two days before. At its best it was one of the best experiences the last 12 months, but I found the whole experience a little uneven.

  9. Al Fassia, Marrakech (Reviewed December 16th 2010): BBBB+ (4,38 points)
    Al Fassia served one of the best meals of our trip to Marrakech. Expensive compared to many other restaurants in the city, it was well worth the investment. It offered low key and excellent service in a contemporary still traditional interior.

  10. Chez Bahia, Marrakech (Reviewed August 4th 2010): BBBB+ (4,31 points)
    Chez Bahia is a place I will return to when revisiting Marrakech. Authentic, high quality food offered at ridiculous prices. A bargain for low budget and luxury travelers alike.

    Park Lunch, Newburyport MA
    (Reviewed February 24th 2010): BBBB+ (4,31 points)
    When I was leaving Northern Massachusetts for Boston's south shore last September, I was taken for a light traditional lunch at Park Lunch in Newburyport. I found that the best American grub is often found in family run diners like this.

  11. Giritli, Istanbul (Reviewed December 7th 2010): BBBB+ (4,30 points)
    For a fixed price, you go through a culinary journey at Giritli Restoran, with a wide range of dishes reflecting the rich Turkish cuisine.

  12. Izarra, Sitges (Reviewed July 2nd 2010): BBBB+ (4,28 points)
    Izarra is located in Calle Major, a narrow street in the pittoresque downtown area of Sitges. Easily accessible by foot a short walk away from the seafront area. Visitors will have to take a 15-20 minute walk from the railway station.

  13. Restaurant Larsen, Oslo (Reviewed October 13th 2010): BBBB+ (4,26 points)
    Sadly Oslo has a very few places that serve this Scandinavian specialty, but I discovered that I could add Restaurant Larsen to the list, and judging from my open sandwich they are good at it.

  14. Barker Tavern, Scituate MA (Reviewed October 5th 2010): BBBB+ (4,24 points)
    Barker Tavern is certainly in the upper crust of restaurants I've visited during my years in New England. With most main courses priced under $30, good service and great historic atmosphere it is most certainly a place to consider for a good meal.

    La Peña, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Reviewed August 24th 2010): BBBB+ (4,24 points)
    Just a stone's throw from the famous Canteras beach in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria you can order tapas at La Peña. We did, and enjoyed the traditional stuff at ridiculous prices and with a view from our table to die for.

  15. Latitude Bistro, M/F Pearl of Scandinavia (Reviewed January 13th 2010): BBBB (4,16 points)
    I have dined on the ferries between Oslo and Copenhagen countless times, and have had a wide range of meals. For those crossing the Kattegat, do not expect fine cuisine.

  16. Restaurant Le Fes, Marrakech (Reviewed April 14th 2010: BBBB (4,10 points)
    Restaurant Le Fes is one out of three restaurants at Eden Andalou Spa & Resort outside Marrakech. It served traditional Moroccan cuisine and was the obvious choice for us when staying at the hotel.

  17. Les Crustacés, Brussels (Reviewed January 27th 2010): BBBB (4,03 points)
    Place Saint Catherine in Brussels used to be the place to enjoy seafood in the Belgian capital. When looking for a place for lunch, we passed a couple of seafood restaurants before choosing Les Crustacés.

  18. Cennet Yoresi, Istanbul (Reviewed July 21st 2010): BBBB (3,99 points)
    There are restaurants that are impossible to evaluate. One of these are Cennet Yoresi. In spite of strange food (my choice), uncomfortable seating in cramped conditions, I still recommend those visiting Istanbul a visit there. It is a genuine experience.

  19. Polcari's Bridgwaye Inn, Scituate MA (Reviewed June 17th 2010): BBBB (3,98 points)

  20. Restaurant Chez Chegrouni, Marrakech (Reviewed March 20th 2010): BBBB: (3,85 points)
    First day in Marrakech we ended up at Restaurant Chez Chegrouni, by the Djemaa el Fna. It was a recommended choice in our guidebook described as a place with good food at low prices. We agree!

  21. Jake's Seafood, Hull MA (Reviewed November 11th 2010): BBBB (3,83 points)
    Jake's Seafood is a great place to dine on the South Shore. Although located in a slightly depressed neighbourhood, this small community has potential. It waits for a new dawn.

  22. Bilbao Berria, Barcelona (Reviewed February 10th 2010): BBBB (3,82 points)

  23. Far East, Oslo: (Reviewed May 26th 2010) BBBB- (3,79 points)
    The Far East meal was a slightly disappointing experience. Good entre, but the main dish was a far cry from the intriguing flavours of the East Asian cuisine.

  24. Café Opera, Bergen: (Reviewed September 13th 2010) BBBB (3,77 points)
    Café Opera is a place for the hip crowds, trendy students or artists in for a pint (or five) of beer, or a glass of red wine. I, however, went there to hide from the fierce weather and wait for my guest to arrive.

    COMING: Restaurant Ola, Playa del Ingles: BBBB (3,77 points)
    Restaurant Ola was nothing to brag of, neither atmosphere nor food, but the staff did as good as they could. Restaurant Ola is hardly the venue for a romantic dinner.

  25. Menelas, Brussels (Reviewed March 10th 2010): BBBB- (3,68 points)
    Excellent service, and reasonable priced lunch and dinners. My Moussaka did not provide me with those strong Greek vibes.

  26. Memphis Cafe & Bar, Oslo (Reviewed October 20th 2010): BBBB- (3,66 points)At Memphis Café & Bar you order burger - only! This was the advise from a friend that lives in the neighbourhood. I ordered pasta. That proved my friend right!

  27. Windsor Garden, Playa del Ingles (Reviewed January 20th 2010) BBBB- (3,62 points)
    Windsor Garden is a place not to try pizza. It has few big assets, all in all. Decent location, and reasonable prices are a few. The rest is best described as mediochre. Windsor is OK for a snack for those of you with low expectations, except to satisfy primary hunger.

  28. Great World, Playa del Ingles (Reviewed April 22th 2010): BBBB- (3,52 points)
    Good location, low prices, but the rest of the Great World experience is hardly worth mentioning. Based on the food we were served, this restaurant is definitely not a place to recommend.

  29. Massimino's Cucina Italiana, Boston MA (Reviewed February 17th 2010): BBB+ (3,39 points)
    Good location, but Massimino's Cucina Italiana is hardly the place for a memorable meal, or an interesting rustic Italian interior.

  7. Fine dining in my new neighbourhood
    Late September I move from downtown Oslo to Høgåsen, in southern part of Oslo. I switch subway for a 15 minute ride with suburban train to Oslo Central Station, apparently far away from any fine dining, or.......?

  8. Food Court at Boston's South StationTo dine in Boston, as any other large US city, may end up as a costly affair. If you spent too much on oysters or Maine lobster the day before, it is a good idea to lunch at one of the many food courts found around the city. It will relieve a stretched budget, and it tastes decent. One fooud court is found at South Station, in the heart of downtown Boston.

  11. Les Terrasses de l'Alhambra - a bar with a view
    I always find my favourite hangout in the cities I visit. In Marrakech we always ended up for a coffee at Les Terrasses de l'Alhambra when tired after exploring the city. Coffee or tea, only, as pizzas, pasta and salads should be enjoyed elsewhere.

  20. Will Hooter's conquer Norway in 2010?
    American Hooter's is a chain of restaurant that may seem incompatible with the politically correct culture found in the Scandinavian countries. It is therefore a surprise that it has applied the city council of Stavanger, Norway's oil capital, to open its first restaurant in Norway
