Very good food but go for something local

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.

Don't waste your time, particularly given that Adobe is just next door and La Casona is across the way.The food was good but the service was terrible and the ambiance lackluster.The restaurant came highly recommended but we found it very disappointing.

Had an incredible meal at Blanco. We ate here on our first night in Chile, and it was probably the best meal of our three week trip. We started with the salmon tartare. That would have been enough to make the meal a success. I got the ceviche which was some of the best I've ever had. My husband ordered... More

Good service by friendly staff in a nice open plan restaurant. The Japanese meatballs are very good as is the sauce and pickles that accompany them

The entrée was delicious (centolla salad) but the main dish (merlusa) wasn't that good. The dessert was very good also
