The place is filled with musical inspiration and history. Good burgers and fries. Cosy place. It's one of the few places left in the city that looks the same after many years of

Having seen so many good review for this place before setting of for Tromso it was clear I'd have to try it for myself whilst in town. So glad I did it was even better than I'd expected. Some people had suggested it was a bit like the Hard Rock Cafe but to my mind the Bla Rock is a... More

blå rock or blue rock in English is one of Tromsøs oldest and last standings pubs. It's well know among the locals and it's know for its burgers. People come to relax, listen to rock and to get inspired and nostalgic. Grab a beer or a burger with a friend.

Atmospheric bar/restaurant a bit like a Hard Rock Cafe. Brilliant burgers. Don't be put off by the 'looks closed' feeling during the day, open the door and go in.

We decided to stop in for a pint and a burger. Monday is pint night for the Mack's lager. We also ordered burgers. The bartender who took our order made it so we ended up paying 30NOK extra per burger for a not so appetizing sauce that I told him I didn't want, but he made us take rather than... More

Good food tried fries, Hamburgers and Hard and Light Beer. Service is fine moderate as in delivery. But seating is limited in case you want to watch a match as it is a sports bar It gets pretty crowded on weekends.

Very tasty burgers (although not cheap), and a good selection of Norwegian beers (although not as extensive as Olhallen or Skarven). Helpful staff, although not the friendliest place I visited. It is small and would be very noisy later in an evening, which is fine if you like that kind of thing.

Overall: 4- Comments: centrally located in Tromsø, spread on several levels, and serving burgers on a top level, and with a variety of beers to go along. The mix of light and dark was a hit.

Great atmosphere, great music and great food - we loved it here! The burgers are absolutely divine and there are so many to choose from, we shared a steak burger and a chicken burger which were both delicious and a basket of fries which we both thought were the best we'd ever had. Very cheap prices for Tromso, I think... More

Unlike others are claiming this is most definately NOT the best burgers in town, by a long shot; very minimal. Music was good live music and atmosphere was friendly but burgers were boring.
