Guys at the local sauna recommended this place and I did not disappoint. Service was super fast and the meal I ordered is a legend in Turku. Lamb pasta. Tiny chunks of lamb that were so delicious.

You can spend a wild party night there, have a very good dinner or tasty lunch - or massive brunch (popular among locals too). One place to go in Turku, Try Blankon Lammaspasta - the best lamb pasta on earth.

Blanko has an excellent situation with a great terass in the summer. The food is good and always of good quality.

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.
