Description: Restaurants Blanko & Tintå closing temporarily for renovations: Due to massive HVAC, piping and electricity renovations that take place in the over 200 years old Bassi building, Blanko is forced to close its doors for the winter on October 16th, and Tintå for the rest of the year on October 23rd. We are truly sorry for the inconvenience and thank all our customers for their patience. You are all warmly welcome once we open Tintå again in the beginning of the year and Blanko in spring 2018! Meanwhile, our sister restaurant Nerå keeps on serving you at Läntinen Rantakatu 37

Picked up Tintå restaurant purely looking through a menus at few restaurants' online pages; Tintå offering looked perfect for the occasion, celebrating birthday with my wife. We went for the long dinner:

apetizers were nicely put together, and the revolution of tastes was incredible. I took the beef carpaccio, whereas my wife took the tigerprawns. Both fresh, crispy and delicious.

main is always a challenge in nowadays modern kitchens. Usually the menu represents only 1 fish, 1 meat and maybe veggie portion. This in order to have always the freshest, seasons best ingredients, I guess. This makes the tasting part a bit dull, as you cannot compare and experience in the same "domain" if you can say so. In Tintå they had 2 totally different skewers, the other made of deer fillet, the other was beef fillet. Both were juicy, made on medium (-) levels as requested. This time it was my wife's portion that was the most delicious - smoke grilled flavour of the deer was just too good :-)

For the dessert we skipped the listed options, as it was noted that the cake tray in the cafe is always available. Not that the offering was not good on the menu, but we just felt for a good piece of cake. Liquorice and lemon cakes from day's offering were the top of the dinner.

In case you have already been at Tintå, and stay in Turku for a longer time, it is safe and even recommended to try Tintå's sister restaurant Blanko. It has opened again after being renovated for a year. It is inthe same house as Tintå, so if you know the address for the other, also easy to find sister :-)

Nice casual atmosphere, dinner menu had adequate variety, recommended wines matched perfectly with the meal. Location is central, by the river Aura.

You know there are those restaurants when you first go there you feel like home. Tintå is one of those. Love the atmosphere, the people, the wine, the food, especially their French fries with mayo. And in winter time they serve vin brulé by their own recipe.

We wanted to catch up with some old friends but the noise made conversation almost impossible. Besides this the waiter behaved in an arrogant and unfriendly way. We took 3 pinchos (12€) which were dry and a glass of cool white wine (8,50€) and left the restaurant in less than an hour. My friends wanted to give less points but the location by the river is charming so it has potential.

Excellant location at the river. We found a free table on the terrace from where you have to go inside to make your order. No problem. I chose shrimp-lemon-salmon salade as a main .course. It was a good choice, the salade was delicious. A bottle of Klosterburg Gruner Veltliner made the dinner to a perfect pleasure. The service was very friendly. This was our first time in this restaurant but I can truly recommend it.
