Blanko's lamb pasta is just perfect. The dish you could eat over and over again. I took Malbec with pasta, that rich wine works well with the lamb and garlic.

Sunday brunch starts with lining up, even if you reserved a table. Once you get in, you start queueing some more. The buffet is located in the most narrow corridor of the restaurant, and the line blocks your way to drinks, coffee, toilet, dessert and bread table even after you manage to get some food. The food is a nice... More

... makes Blanko worth a visit. I had visited their restaurant once before, I cannot remember what I ordered back then but I wasn't impressed because that dish was way too salty. However, after giving Blanko another go and eating their famous lamb pasta, I feel much better about them.

Lovely day, ate outside. We had salads: with salmon and with lamb. Both delicious, although the lamb was quite salty. No complaints, except that 18-19 euros/salad is quite a lot. Service ok, not anything special. The music was quite loud also outside. Still, would go again.

I went there for a simple lunch. I asked about the lamb pasta they had in the lunch menu that what kind of meat it is, is it minced meat? The waitress at the cashier said that it is the same what they have in their famous ala carte lamb pasta dish (slices of sirloin or tenderloin it at least... More

Legendary nightlife place in Turku, but also serve good food. Mostly visited by young, trendy folks. Not very many glutenfree options, but their salads have been good.

Ha dinner with my family and really enjoyed the ambience. Food and service were good. The only thing I must mention was that our food arrived at different times. The waitor did apologise for this though.

We had a very nice experience on the Blanco terrace: my husband took their famous lamb pasta and I selected the lamb salad. The red wine was excellent match according to bartender's recommendation. Nice rekaxed armosphere and when it's sunny weather the terrace is a great spot to just look at people walking along the riverside.

I had a lunch in Restaurant Blanko and it was nice. The staff was friendly and the pasta carbonara was good. They have a lovely outdoor seating area but I chose to eat indoors which was real comfy too. Could eat there again or have drinks outdoors.

We went there for lunch. A well thought through though short-ish menu. One of us had chicken curry, some did a fish soup and another had a steak. The steak was the victory, a perfectly medium rare treat. In Finland, a fish soup is somewhere between a starter and a main dish. If you are after a light dish, that's... More
