Went there for lunch on Saturday. The place is nice and even somewhat elegant. The food was a bit tasteless and bland. The hummus was not tangy and the wheat risotto lacked saltiness and bite. It was accompanied with a smallish piece of salmon. Service is nice but slow. Techno music in the background...

Blanko used to be the trendiest bar in town, but still going strong. Location is excellent by the river Aura. Food is ok, they do offer some creative options in the menu. Good DJ's during weekends, if you like hipster music.

The food was good but nothing extraordinary. The waitresses could have been attentive and polite, but they acted kind of in a hurry and one of them openly rude. Maybe it's part of this popular restaurant's charm? Didn't work for me, though.

This restaurant / bar is very popular so in the evenings it might be difficult to find a spot. The food is ok, some of it even better than ok, and most of the staff is friendly and professional. This is a good place for lunch and their brunch is extremely popular. For dinner it is a bit crowded and... More

Nicely located restaurant in the city of Turku. I would recommend this for a group of friends: the restaurant is quite big and you all probably fit in.

Here the food (well prepared and in large quantity) and the service are the best. The fixtures and decoration (?) are not a reason to dream for. The lamb is really a very good choice.

Blanko is actually one of the places we end up going most of the times. We always find a seat for 2 though we have not booked and the food is good. Last weekend it was 6 of us and we got a booked table inside at the rear of the room. In all we ordered 2 starters: hummous and... More

The food is tasty and the menu is quite versatile. Worth the money. However the service is notoriusly bad, it has always been so and yet they are packed every day. About the chairs outside... well once you have sat there in the sun (maybe the sunnyest terrance in Turku?!) for about 5-10 minutes you know what I mean. Take... More
