“One of my favourites”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

We've been at Can Blau twice now. The prices are fairly high but the food is nothing less than world-class! The atmosphere is relaxed and the service is very friendly. However, the tables are a little small, which I think is a shame when you are having tapas. Still, I recommend Can Blau left, right and centre whenever I get the chance :)

“Fabulous tapas!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

Our food was across the board fabulous- meat falling off the bone, fresh seafood and the fried artichokes with red grapefruit, truffle and orange cream knocked my taste buds away. We were there with 3 young children and seated in the back family area-perfect for us, and the waiters were all very friendly and knowledgable. Absolutely loved the place.

“Good food but bit overpriced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2012 via mobile

Went there a couple of times with friends. Food is nice but expensive considering the portion(tapas can't be big anyways) easily spent 50 euro per person i think. This makes me miss Spain a lot:-)
They also got a clumsy waitress:-)

“Good food, but poor service and high prices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2012

I've been to Can Blau on several occasions. And it's more and more just because of the food. In the beginning the service was fine, and together with the great food the price was ok. But on my two last visits the service has been bad, the prices have gotten a notch up, and therefore I dont think it's value for money anymore. The food is still really good, tapas (with a twist), but the waiters are not attentive enough, and it takes a bit of effort to get their attention.
The restaurant is big and can at times be quit noisy.
If Can Blau gets their focus back on the service and adjust their prices I'll go back, but for now there's better places to eat in Aarhus.

“Can Blau - can do!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2011

Can Blau has very many tables and a big dining hall atmosphere, not quite intimate but charming in its own way. We were a family of four and it was fun. "Can Blau tapas bar" is how they present themselves and we went for the tapas - bacalao on a guacamole and shrimps with a salad were both savory delights. Also a plate of falafel was very delicious with a spectacular sauce that we also used for a few other servings. Squids on a mashed potato cream and Spanish meat balls (without the sauce borrowed from the falafel) came out a bit bland in taste.
Although having a great time it was quite clear that the staff needs to refine their professional routines. We were immediately asked to order drinks without having seen any wine card or beer selection or having made any decisions on food. Having mentioned "perhaps a white wine" we were presented to a recommendation (a bottle brought to the table) along with the wine card, still without any consideration yet on the food - all a bit too quickly and leaving doubts if this was meant to serve us, or the business. Todays specials referred to blackboards which were nowhere to be seen and asking the waiters did not help. The tapas came without bread which we then ordered but never got. Clumpsy situations also occurred later when we placed orders for coffee and desserts. Better routines should be easy to fix, however - serving customers comes easy for those who care.
