Popular hang out after work and during week ends. The Lamb-pasta is a legend in Turku and well worth a try. Also child friendly.

We went here for dinner with six people and had a nice evening with good food. The restaurant has good athmosphere and there were several vegetarian options with interesting taste combinations.

The perfect meal after a day of exploring - great ambiance, friendly staff and lots of locals eating as well. I absolutely enjoyed the chicken tortellini and my husband had the chicken wok/pad thai. Highly recommended!

We had dinner in Blanko and it was great. We had meals from their Sunday choices and everything we ordered was excellent. Staff is more than friendly and they were there for us without bothering us.

We chose this restaurant while walking around Turku. It sits along the river and pedestrian (bike) path and has outside seating. The meal was very good and the option of eating outside is always a plus!
