We also offer banquet menus for groups and special occasions, with skilfully composed menus.

Our wine list is well-rounded, and offers many excellent wines, including fantastic vintages from Bordeaux. Restaurant Nansen is also renowned for the extensive Cognac and Armagnac selection with offering which will satisfy all palates.
