“The brunch is the best one you can find in Finland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

The brunch is simply awesome since it has a great value and good food. The a la carte menu is also nice, the lamb pasta is delicious (it is also this pasta Blanko is known for). Blanko is also a highly recommended place to visit when you want to have a drink and have a nice evening. Usually they have a good dj there on weekends. A great place in all aspects!

“Lovely lunches, excellent catering”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

I've had several delicious lunches in Blanko. My favourite time of the year to have lunch here is in the summer. If you manage to get a table on a sunny day on the terrace area, it's a good spot to enjoy your lunch & the sun and do a bit of people watching. Granted, the terrace is next to a busy street and as such not very appealing, but yet it seems to be one of the more popular spots in town for a summer lunch.

I've also once or twice been in a wedding / other occasion, where the food was catered by Blanko and it's been excellent. I'm not sure if they have this service available anymore, but it's definitely worth asking, if you're planning a catered dinner party in Turku.

“Straighforward quality lunch- generous portions!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

Excellent deal - 9 euro lunch. I had salmon risotto which was a huge serving. I would totally eat there again.
Relaxed atmosphere, fast unbothered service. A slightly upscale diner.

“The blessed silence of the lamb”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

Both had the scallops and the Lamb pasta, dessert was the crème Brulee. The service was efficient and frendly. On the scallop platter was a slice of lemon and I made the mistake of squeeing it: there was enought of acid already in the mayo, so that was a mistake. The marinated (sushi) ginger was a nice extra. Lamb pasta was absolutely heavenly: apparently the only red pesto, mutton and fresh pasta has been used to ceate a quite heavenly dish. Apple-cardamom crème brulee was good.
