Went for a dinner and really had a good time. The staff (I guess the owner himself) was very friendly and he recommended wine and food. The food was great. Location - 7/10 - Away from the centre of the town but convenient place Service - 8/10 Food quality - 9/10 Value - 9/10 Return - YES

Despite the menu being small, there was something for everyone. We shared the mezze, and one person opted for 2 starters. All the food was delicious.

Cosy place with fresh and tasty vegetarian dishes. Each dish consists of a lot of smaller dishes so you get a lot of variety. The mezze is great to share.

Had the Indian mix-a dahl, a coconut veg curry, salad, rice, samosa. Poppadoms. All very tasty. Very nicely served. Very helpful service-great English spoken. Waiting for vegan pudding option now! Can't wait!

Good vegetarian restaurant, a little outside the center of Groningen. Had a starter and a main course, and didn't have enough space left for a dessert.. However, don't expect innovative dishes, felt a bit basic sometimes for the price. Recommended.

I always appreciate vegetarian restaurants and I believe this one can be appreciated also by non-vegetarian people. The place is very small and not very fancy furnished. The food is good, not so much choice, though. Few appetizers (not recommended, too high prices and the main dish is enough!) and three main menus. We chose the arabic menu which was... More

The food was nothing special. Nothing you couldn't have done at home, and not innovative at all. My plate had lots of different items, but most of the food had the same basic flavorings - lots of salty peanuts and coconut and then some sweetness from banana. That's just too easy - almost anything tastes good with those ingredients. The... More

This vegetarian restaurant uses a microwave to heat up the food which is cooked earlier that day. Adding some fresh salad and fried items makes it looking freshly cooked. Restaurant prices do not justify the quality of the food (which is reasonable not good ). You can find better restaurants in town that have good vegetarian items on their menu.

This is a slightly old fashioned vegetarian restaurant, of the sort I used to visit in London about twenty years ago. The decor is simple and the food pleasant, without being exciting. I had a plate which consisted of a selection of small Indian style dishes (including somosa, chutney, rice, dhal), which was OK, but would probably have been better... More

One of the best vegetarian restaurants we've ever eaten at (and we used to live in California!). Simply great food, a creative menu of wonderfully varied ingredients, and a warm atmosphere. It's worth the detour (located just outside downtown Groningen) for great vegetarian food!

Meat nor Fish

"Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances of survival of life on earth as the evolution to a vegetarian diet" Albert Einstein

We love to serve delicious food without using meat and fish. Our kitchen is naturally suitable for both vegetarians and vegans, but also for those people who like to experiment with original vrgetarian dishes Restaurant Bla Bla is the place to be. We do not use the so called meatreplacers but we love to show that by using creativity and passion for the ingredients a varied and delicious meal can be served. You won't miss meat or fish, that's a promise.
We also have a big choice of starters and desserts and a minimum of three maincourses to choose from, these maindishes consist of a minimum of five different components. We change the menu several times a year. Our kitchen is a worldkitchen, and our dishes are inspired by tastes from all over the world. Our chefs know the art of combining different tastes and textures into an exiting meal.
Children are welcome.
We also serve meals for different diets. Please ask us at least one day in advance.
We have a restaurant in Rotterdam and in Groningen.
