Great Lunch!

The lunch and the wine list was great! Tried a very affordable sparkling wine and loved it. We had to wait pretty long for our food though.

I went to Blanko based on friends recommendations and was very happy about it. The restaurant is cozy and the service was really friendly. Starter (tempura shrimps) was good but the main course (chicken tagliatelle) blew my mind. It was so good. Fresh vegetables made the pasta very fresh and crispy. The price-quality ratio was also good.

Happened to find this place by luck. Sunday buffet for EUR 18 including everything - wonderful salad selection, all sorts of cheeses, fresh cooked salmon, 6 hot dishes, great desserts and ice cream, several cold drinks including punch and coffee and tea. Staff were lovely - when I asked which hot dishes did not contain meat they immediately brought us... More

Visited for dinner and the food was good. First waiter was very rude to our foreign visitors. Toilets were uncleaned. Vegetarian food, noodles was excellent and dessert ice cream from local makers was heavenly. Music that they played was like in a drughouse so all my points are from the food.

You can typically enjoy the first sunny spring days with a drink at the outdoor tables. In the evenings young people take over the place, you can enjoy nice meals dinner and lunch. Me and most of my frinds and my kids (18 & 15 ys) will order the Blanco's lamb pasta, the signature dish has been on the menu... More

Nice atmosphere in this restaurant close to the centre and the riverside. Serves unexceptional fare - salads, burgers etc. However, what we had (chicken salad, burger) was good, both in terms of taste and value. Friendly, professional service.

I have actually visited Blanko several times but never before reviewed it. This is a bit more trendier restaurant with nice atmosphere and good food. They also have a very popular summer terrace in front of the restaurant. They serve both lunch and dinner, but personally I have only been there for dinner. They change their menu a couple of...

Went here for dinner while on a business trip to Turku. The place is rather busy so make reservations ahead if you want a decent table. The food was no frills stuff but rather ok and theres quite a lot to choose from. No great surprises here, the staff was friendly but as usual in Finland we had to wait... More

This is maybe the best lunch place in Turku. Very good pasta dishes. Also excellent brunch at weekends.
