This Galician restaurant embodies the essence of Spanish culinary culture with its bountiful tables laden with an array of dishes perfect for every palate. The secret to O’Retorno’s charm lies in its simplicity and its commitment to quality ingredients, perfectly cooked to create mouth-watering experiences.
Step into O’Retorno, and you’re greeted with an atmosphere that’s both welcoming and unpretentiously sophisticated. The menu is a treasure trove of Galician cuisine, renowned for its exceptional meat, seafood, and fresh vegetables. Each dish is a testament to the rich and diverse produce of Galicia. What’s particularly striking is the size of the portions – they’re huge! Fortunately, almost everything is available in ‘media ración‘ (half portions), which are still generously sized.
A highlight of dining at O’Retorno is the guidance provided by the friendly staff. They expertly navigate you through the extensive menu, ensuring you don’t over-order but still leave satisfied.
