About Brasserie Hansken
Few places in Oslo have such staying power as Brasserie Hansken. Established in 1997 it's still extremely popular with locals as well as travellers and has a longstanding reputation for quality. Located in the picturesque Christiania Torv, it's surrounded by some of the oldest buildings in Oslo. The waterfront is just a quick stroll away, and in the summertime, the outdoor terrace is a bustling, busy sight.
The cuisine, as well as the interior, is classic French with a Scandinavian flair, and the staff is both service-minded and experienced, making it a favourite venue for business lunches as well as important dinners.
About the Brasserie Hansken Wine List
The selection of wines by the glass at Brasserie Hansken is quite small and simple. The bottle selection, on the other hand, is extensive and has a strong focus on Champagne, Burgundy and the other classic French regions.
A penchant for California can also be detected, but regardless of region, ”classic” is the name of the game.

One of my favourites for Saturday lunch. The terrace is a given in the summer and the menu is always inviting and the dishes delicious, all very French inspired of course. The wine list is growing and the choice of Champagnes is really nice, Champagne goes to anything and everything right? Choose between a classic tartar with fries, Kalix caviar, oysters or an entrecôte, it all works with Champagne. And if you prefer reds to your entrecôte, there is a large selection of Frenchies to choose from.
