“Surprisingly good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

Have been to Bar Blanco drunkenly for dancing at night and to be honest could take it or leave it, but this was a lunch time date...a birthday treat from a friend. I had a panini, she had a salad. Both were really delicious, the salad looked amazing. Very nice place to sit and enjoy a spot of lunch. Service was good...the staff were all welcoming, the food arrived promptly, and we didn't feel rushed to leave - the place is big enough to accommodate people who want to sit and chat for a couple of hours without needing to get you out of the door. Overall, a great pace for a bite to eat, thoroughly recommended. Doesn't open till 12 though, so don't turn up hoping for breakfast/brunch/morning coffee.
