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

I was here with wife and daughter for late lunch. I wanted to try their pasta with lamb but my wife ordered it and I ate pasta with beef and pesto. It was very good, maybe little bit to much oil but very tasty. And pasta with lamb sirloin was great. Daughter ate minute steak with fries and she was... More

A selection of innovative pasta dishes. Lamb tagliatelli is very popular, wok dishes are good, too. The main courses also mix intenational ingrediences. Many of the portitions are quite large, and heavy, so you need to be hungry to eat through starter - main course - desert. The restaurant is very busy during weekends, so book a table ahead.

The service is a bit more rigid than the restaurant next door but it is less pricy and the food is equally good. I had the vege wok: one of the best I ever had, I highly recommend it. If you're in the area, it's totally worth it and it should be even more enjoyable in the summer.
