Kontrast is a Modern Scandinavian restaurant with a focus on using ingredients that are both local and at the peak of their season. Our main goals are to offer world class, organic and ethically sourced ingredients from within Norway and to showcase the farmers who produce them.

We choose to use animals that have lived their lives free and wild. Happy animals are good animals.

Restaurant Kontrast received in 2016 its first Michelin star.
No.20 in Scandinavia in White Guide.
No.183 on OAD100+ Europe’s list.

Mikael Svensson is voted one of the best 300 chefs in the world.

I was born and raised in Skåne, in the countryside among farmers and open landscapes.

Kontrast is a dream I have had for 15 years. Ever since I decided to become a chef.

My career as chef started at school in Kristianstad, from there to various jobs and apprenticeships around Skåne. There I discovered my love of quality products that come from the local area.

“The end result is never better than the quality of the product you start with”

My career continued in Oslo, Norway at Le Canard 11 years ago. Then I continued in Europe working for several restaurants with one, two and three Michelin stars. Among others, the Spanish restaurants Quique Dacosta and Martin Berasategui, before I returned to Oslo.

Back in Oslo, I participated in the launch of Grims Grenka restaurant Madu and Tjuvholmen Sjømagasin, where I worked as assistant chef.

Now is the time to open my own dream.
