Blå is one of the more exclusive or even posh restaurants in Porsgrunn. The location by the river is beautiful. The staff is quick and polite. And the menu is well above the standard: The kitches applied some phantasie to make the food more interesting.

Good food, good drinks and good service! :) Very nice outdoor areas for summer, in the sun by the river.

Yet again the food was fantastic! Had the seasonal dish "ribbe" which was perfect. The service was also top notch even though the restaurant was full with customers, mostly drunk I must add. As usual this restaurant makes a point of having customers enjoying very good tasting food!

We chose this place from its Tripadvisor rating and had already read that the reindeer was a good choice. We were not disappointed: food was fantastic. The dessert was also great. Add excellent service and atmosphere this meal turned out to be memorable. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Some months later, another try. Quite empty midweek at 6.30 pm. The same waitress, eager to please you, discreete and proud. Took the same disg blue shell mussles. The same hot curry spicing is really too much, and as I wanted it as a main course the cook made a big plate full. I really had difficulties to get it... More

Not the first time at Blaa, but for sure, this was better than last time! A fantastic location by the river does something with you during dinner! Sitting "on" the river while eating... Amazing! Had some very nice tapas served, with a beer, (yes beer not wine!), that was just perfect. I like the fact that they recommend not only... More

Restaurant alongside the river in the city of Porsgrunn. Tasty food and very friendly service. Fish soup as a starter higly recommended. Wine list also very nice and menu included clear drink recommendations for the portions. Very beautifull view to river from the terrasse, which is very large. Not very cheap, but worth to try.

Thank Pas12015
