Food was ok

I had the minute steak and it was ok, colleagues had the chicken tagliatelle which they said was very good and the red curry verge dish was surprisingly filling. The variety of dishes available is good so would try again.

Great atmosphere and service! I would definitely recommend it for dinner. You should try the lamb pasta, it was really good.

Blanko is probably the best brunch restaurant in the town. The location is just next to the Aura-river and city center. The brunch was excellent offering a wide variety of all kind of fresh and tasty dishes. If you want to live a few days in Turku/Åbo - go to swim at Samppalinna, have a pub crawl along the river...

Went here with someone from Turku and says it's one of their favourite restaurants. Not disappointed- atmospheric restaurant with great food and friendly staff. The lamb pine nut and pesto pasta was good! Came in a couple of days after and the lamb salad was equally good. Will be back and try other dishes too!

I like Blanko's food but I love their brunch. It is the best in town in my opinion. They also do pretty good catering service for parties - although the price of that is getting higher.

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.

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.
