Everything was awesome! Service was awesome, food was great, portions were huge and made with care! And on top of it all, it wasn’t that expensive! All in all everything was fantastic, we’re coming back!

Everything was well made and tasted good. The menu has a few items that are really interesting dishes. No complaints about the service either.

The kids meal (a pasta Bolognese) was excellent, the pizza quite ordinary and the meat dish really good. Friendly and service minded staff made this a 4 star rating.

Sometimes you're lucky and get a good pizza, the next time it's really bad. The meat they have on the pizzas are really bad. But like a Quattro stagoni is quite good.

We visited this place mainly due to the rating on TripAdvisor, and I have to disagree with the rating of 4,5/5. We ordered: Garlic bread Onion rings Pasta Bolognese BBQ burger Beer and Bacon Burger Pizza Lille blå from the kids menu The two starters...and the pasta was good. The kids pizza was a regular size pizza- meaning a lot of food went to waste. The burgers were plain and simple and the meat was dry. Nothing out of the ordinary at this place, a good burger you can probably find other places in town.More

We also tried this one, being in the area. But... it just does not cut it. Cool staff (or so they think), mediocre food.

Very average food though the waiting staff were pleasant enough. Just one of many disappointing eating experiences in Sweden over the years.

I had a "Pappas" as I thought that would be a signature pizza. It was the worst pizza I had in a long time. I couldn't eat the meat at all. My friends did say the burgers where ok, but the reviews are personal and...for me it was the worst.More

We visited Borgholm on a monday, when several restaurants were closed, including some we had already tried and adored, giving Pappa Bla a chance. However, out of five people, only one ate their meal, so weak that it was the food! A calzone with an...acceptable appearance outside, which became lousy when it began to eat, filled with super greasy, horrible looking ham. Two burgers pretty bad, frozen burger style! And a bolognese pasta where the appearance did not even save her. Only the pizza was acceptable ...More

Dinner in July. Place was packed and nice seating outside. The beer was excellent. Staff was fast and accurate. Good place for people watching as it sits on the strip of the town.

Experienced a pleasant lunch at Pappa Bla, the staff was professional and eager to please. Our party was more than 15 people, so a variety of choices were made from pizza to Ceasar salad and we were all satisfied.

We go here on a regular basis. Very popular and often with long queue. However do not despair, the staff is very efficient and one rarely has to wait very long. If you want complicated menus with food you barely have heard of, go elsewhere....This is basic well cooked food in a friendly, service minded ambiance. A place you can come back to every so often without emptying your wallet.More

A very casual pub/eatery that's got a tight menu that's good value for Sweden. Pripps Blå on tap and a friendly, blonde waitress. We tried the Filet Steak, the Entrecôte dish of the day and the Pepper Jack burgers. All excellent and all served piping...hot within 20 minutes. Very good spot for people watching too!More

I think the ribs are probably best on the menu, everything else is so so Had to wait a long time for the kids pizza that was not spectacular. Impersonal neutral service, perhaps they were burned out after the season

We were seated outside and we enjoyed our diner here. No menus in English, but the waiters were helpful to explain some of the dishes to us. The food was very nice, good price/quality.
