The Restaurant has a good atmosphere, with a nice and clean decoration. The entree, centolla (typical seafood) was great! But the main dish, merluza (white fish) was just ok. The dessert was good, it was a selection of 5 different ones.

We were booked in here as part of the compensation for our hotel being overbooked. We had been promised the best restaurant in town - if it is, I fear for the others. The service was passable, but only the chef spoke English when we were there. The food was, likewise, passable - but hardly exciting. Later on we went... More

Came recommended by our travel agents, and we were not disappointed. Good food, well presented, and served by affable waiters. Reasonable prices. We would recommend it.

The atmosphere of the place is nice and the staff is friendly. However; the menu is limited and you are good as long as you make a local food choice such as ceviche (otherwise don´t expect something spectacular, for instance Japanese meat balls!?).

We just wanted a light lunch -Blanco supplied the answer and we ordered the Mediterranean salad. They arrived contained within huge iceberg lettuce leaves -lovely presentation & even better to eat.Nothing fancy but both presentation & taste were very good -as was the service. An interesting menu but unfortunately we never made it for dinner.

We went to Blanco for dinner and loved our food so much that we returned the next day for lunch. This was probably the best food we had in Chile. We ordered the salmon tartar - delicious and fresh - as an appetizer. I then had the crab lasagna - delicious but heavy! My boyfriend had the octopus salad and... More

We ate in 5 Restaurants in San Pedro and this we would rank 3 of 5 although that may be due to unfair exposure compared to the others as we ate there twice. We enjoyed a pizza and salad the first night but expectations fell the second with a crab lasagna and salad. Salads were limited to three, one with... More

We had 3 nights in San Pedro and ate at Blanco, Adobe and La Casona. All very good but we liked Blanco the best and thought it amazing you could get such quality in such a small, remote town. Excellent innovative menu, very tasty food, good atmosphere.
