“Nice place for good eating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2014

View of Porsgrunn river, very good food and drinks. The restaurant seats about 60. The menu is international and very tasteful. I have been there twice in December and both seafood and meat was perfect. Downstairs you can sit outside at the riverside with gas heating.

“Very recommendable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

Modern bar with broad and fair offer. 3-course set menu was very good, the ox cheeks are super, the white fish was a bit overcooked. Beef carpaccio and fish soup were both good. Very good wine offer and attentive service. Clean and very good atmosphere. Clear recommendation!

“Best restaurant in Porsgrunn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 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”

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 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 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.
