“Best restaurant in Porsgrunn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

Went here multiple times over a 3 week period. Always good, nice wine, good service, great food.

Fantastic spot on a nice day if you would like to sit out on the deck.

The menu is varied but the very reasonably priced tapas was the winner for me.

“Great kitchen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Started in the nice bar below with good drinks. Starters and main course was very good. Great service and a nice winelist. Pick this place for a casual dinner og a romamtic date with your chosen one.

“New bar by the river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

At last did Porsgrunn get a new bar and restaurant. It was due time! Blaa is a nice “funky” place with a bar/lounge on the ground floor. First floor has a restaurant with very good food. The tapas dishes are very good! They are playing nice funky blues and lounge music during the evnings. The outdoor area is directly on the riverside and gives you a fantastic feeling when the sun goes down…. You would need your shades!
The employees are nice and they all goes the extra stretch to make you feel good during your stay.

“Great food, excellent value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

We have been here several times, both for drinks and food. They have a nice, stylish restaurant upstairs, and a bar area with plenty of outdoor seating by the water down stairs. The menu changes often, but their tapas is really good. And all food is very well prepared, and in generous portions. Service is also excellent, and staff is very attentive. They also have a smaller tapas platter that they serve in the bar, as a snack. It is great and very reasonable - less than 200 NOK with a glass of wine.

All in all, highly recommended.
