This was the only Norwegian phrase my grandmother would teach me.

You must never leave a Norwegean meal in a private home without saying "Takk for maten" to whoever cooked it. Very important, honor to your grandmother!

Hahaha, from mine I only learnt "Kyss meg i ræva!" ... Kiss my arse! Takk for det, bestemor.

I was hoping this meant "Thanks for mating".

A great compliment.

I visited Fleicher's Hotel in Voss, Norway for a meal with my wife. At the end I remembered to say "Takk for Maten" to the young girl waiting table. She was thrilled that the English people did this. And, of course, I was thrilled because she was thrilled... it was all very nice. Thank you Duolingo.

You can also just say "Takk for mat" according to my Norwegian bf.

So you would say that in a restaurant, too? I thought you would only say that if you were invited (family, friends,...).

Yes, in a restaurant too, apparently. It may be a little quaint, but very charming.
