Missed the Sunday brunch, lunch was very good

If you're arriving to Turku on a Sunday, the brunch is until 16:00! Went to lunch on a weekday, very reasonable prices, good food.

One of the best main courses I've ever had for a dinner. Grilled veal liver & rosemary potatoes. Try it! The restaurant had missed our booking, but quickly apologized the mistake and arranged us a table although the place was fully booked,

Blanko restaurant in Turku offers Brunch at sundays. The brunch time is 12.00 - 16.00. It is a normal breakfast with various salads + desserts. The taste is good and the choise is large. Bad thing is that the restaurant is quite tight, because there was much people, when we was there. I think that it would be better to... More

Blanko is a very well located restaurant in Turku. Right next to the market square. It is a rather expensive place but the food is delicious and after a certain hour the place turns into a very fancy bar with customers from 20 to late 40s years old. The bar is adapted for a night out with your friend and... More

We visited Blanko soon after the turn of the year with another family after a long traveling day. We were four adults and three youngsters. Service was very friendly, smooth and timely. We got a handy round table in a peaceful corner where it was easy to chat. Food was tasty (though not exceptional) and of good value. The surroundings... More

we visited Blanko last time several years ago when it was new and trendy and thought that it would be a bit outdated today, but the food (I had lamb) was actually very good and atmosphere was ok too!

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.
