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

Blanko has been able to keep its position as a very popular place to have lunch or a light dinner. I do not wonder why - the menu is versatile and everything is well prepared. We had the strawberry & haloumi salad and fish after that, fresh and tasty. Excellent choice.

I love this restaurant for several reasons: 1. Location is outstanding; by the canal in Turku, close to downtown 2. Staff extremely helpful and friendly and they all speak several languages 3. Excellent food: served in large plates, greatly decorated, and most importantly: delicious.

Blanko can always be trusted if you want to get good food in Turku. The starters are specially delicious (try the Tiger prawns :-), also Cesar salads and woks can always be recommended.

Blanko is the relaxed living-room type place, where you meet friends, and get tasty food for affordable price. During the summer, the tables outside the Blanko at the corner of Aura bridge are the best spot to see people in Turku. The lamb pasta is your best choice, it's really tasty!

The brunch is simply awesome since it has a great value and good food. The a la carte menu is also nice, the lamb pasta is delicious (it is also this pasta Blanko is known for). Blanko is also a highly recommended place to visit when you want to have a drink and have a nice evening. Usually they have... More

I've had several delicious lunches in Blanko. My favourite time of the year to have lunch here is in the summer. If you manage to get a table on a sunny day on the terrace area, it's a good spot to enjoy your lunch & the sun and do a bit of people watching. Granted, the terrace is next to... More
