We had ordered food from Blanko to our company christmas party. We had lamb pasta, fresh salad and bread. Everything was marvellous!

Restaurant is quite noisy on week-end evenings for dinner. Difficult to hear each other. I had some pasta and vegan brownie. The pasta would have been better with less of coriander.

Blanco is very popular restaurant at lunch time. I understand well why. Normal weekend lunch was great. Many choices for everyone by around 10 euro. I took this time meat. Portion was on wood plate, which fits well in this portion. I warmly recommend Blanco.

Blanko is a nice place if you want to have some drinks with friends and eat some snacks while drinking, but don't expect too much from the food. Last time I was there the meat was super spicy and salty, and dessert panna cotta tasted rubbery and at least two days old. So pretty disappointed at the food.

In the evening a perfect place to go for a drink or two and listen to some good music (DJs playing live).

At lunch times Blanko serves a nice variety per every weekday. At weekends they also serve brunch. Later in the evening the restaurant transforms into a nightclub. I recommend visiting Blanko at the summer time!

For the start, we had baltic herring in three ways. It was quite ok, although I would have preferred it more coherent (if the word is correct). Pasta with lamb was very good, and the wines also. As for the dessert, in the ice cream there was smetana, a "little" mistake in the kitchen... For the food three points might... More

I visited with my mother and brother on a recent trip from Australia/the UK. Stopped in at Blanko after a day of driving and sightseeing. Menu was really interesting and we had trouble choosing a dish out of wanting them all - all of our food was amazing and the restaurant had a relaxed and lovely atmosphere. Don't miss out... More

I have eaten here many times and I have never been dissapointed to my food. Altough I'm meat lover, I almost everytime eat the vegetable pasta here. Menu changes often enough to my 2-3 times per year visiting to have always new menu in front of me. I have been here also at night time, this is good place to... More
