Unfortunately, both locations of Blanco's are now closed. Very unfortunate; I really liked this place!

“Good thinking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

The staff was great and welcoming. They offered great pointers on what was good food and that meant a great meal for us. We were especially pleased with the wine and food pairing suggested.
I loved the general design of the place and thought the swahili menus were pretty nifty!

“Screens all over the place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Together with a couple friend we decided to visit the Blanco's Lounge & Grill inside the Galleria mall in Karen. We enjoyed the drinks and the service but the Tv screens all over the place could not help but shout that the venue was aimed at Sports Fanatics- who love their space and games! They can do better with music as we kept sending the waiters to either increase volume or change music. A night well spent though!

“True Kenyan Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

One of the few places you can find truly traditional Kenyan food, in a city of excellent but often multinational restaurants. Service very good and staff happy to explain the dishes. Good beer and wine too. Prices reasonable. Traditional art on the walls and nice decor. A very pleasant evening will be had here, try it :)

“Nice food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

I enjoyed the food, though it took forever to come. the service is quite ok too. Their desserts are also good. Ambiance is average, but all in all, great place to be for great food.
