Nice and cosy place. Hard to get waiter to table, but food was good. Menu is small not too many choice. Wine list is ok, but the waiter didn't know about the wines.

Lunch is okay, nothing special. Atmosphere is very elitistic and unwelcoming. Service was slow, but friendly.

Met here with business colleagues. Everyone loved the experience. We had salmon, spaghetti with calamari and prawns, fillet of beef, etc... and finished it off with the salted carmel crème brulee. The drinks and wine were not bad either. The décor is very nice and cozy. I understand that this is a nice place for music and dancing as well.... More

We found wonderful food in Turku. Blanko served reasonably priced (for Finland!) delicious food in a lovely atmosphere. The staff were really friendly and spoke good English (we've only mastered Thank you in Finnish - kittos!). The only reason it wasn't 5 stars was because we had to wait a long time for our plates to be cleared. I heavily... More

The hamburger I had was really good and the portion was big enough. A bit noicy and dark (I had a hard time readin the menu at our table in the coasy "cellar", due to lack of light). The service and the personal was great, absolutely no complaints there. I think it's probably good to reserve a table for dinner,... More

Restaurant is quite noisy on week-end evenings for dinner. Difficult to hear each other. I had some pasta and vegan brownie. The pasta would have been better with less of coriander.

Blanco is very popular restaurant at lunch time. I understand well why. Normal weekend lunch was great. Many choices for everyone by around 10 euro. I took this time meat. Portion was on wood plate, which fits well in this portion. I warmly recommend Blanco.

Blanko is a nice place if you want to have some drinks with friends and eat some snacks while drinking, but don't expect too much from the food. Last time I was there the meat was super spicy and salty, and dessert panna cotta tasted rubbery and at least two days old. So pretty disappointed at the food.
