Lots of history under the dust

The decor on the walls is amazing and you could just spend hours watching all the posters. The food is not bad but could be a little bit more on the plate as I was still hankering for a bit more when i was having a few drinks. The drink is of a good selection and is all from tap,... read more

Whatever this stage-full ensemble is about, it was fun. Loud, jangly, fun, spirited songs! The banter was Norwegian so we didn't understand much, but a lot of the songs were in English. Apparently this act is a Sunday night institution so we were glad we caught it. The patio is amazing - right along the river. They do burgers on... More

Good music, people and very friendly staff. The place is build up of many floors, whom do not block eachother, so that you can always look down on the floors below you.

Has the decor of a Hard Rock Cafe, but seemed more like a local hangout to watch sports. The food was just ok. Tried 2 different burgers. The sauces were great, but the burger tasted like an average frozen patty.

Friendly atmosphere & had great burgers - I had the Dead Kennedys burger. This is a rock bar so don't expect fancy dining & the menu choice is pretty much burgers or burgers but thats the reason I went there. There's an interesting decor of band posters, guitars & drums and its worth a wander round to have a look... More

I went to Blå Rock Cafe to have a burger and I got really disappointed. Before I go there, I read some reviews about the place on Trip Advisor and it seemed to be a good place for burger but trust me, it's not! The burger is that kind that you buy on the super market and the fries are... More

This is a rock style pub which has lots of rock memorabilia and friendly staff. Don't go expecting high end finish, it's a music pub and a place to stop for some great beer whilst in Tromso.

Let me just start by saying everybody who lives in tromsø knows blårock. It's an institution here in town where locals go for great burgers, football and the occasional concert. It's nowhere near gourmet quality, but hey, if you are into fancy restaurants, tromsoe has other places to visit. I love the burgers, the music and the atmosphere. What makes... More

If you're into Zeppelin, Motorhead, Beck and some Bob Dylan - visit this restaurant near the water front of Tromso. Good music, good beer and great burgers. It's expensive everywhere, so if you want to spend money on something worth while, visit Bla Rock Cafe - the Norwegian Hard Rock.
