We visited this Restaurante and were really pleased with the superb Seafood . We had the Pulpo (Share) as too much for one . Squid and Mussels Recommend to share as the servings a generous and maybe just share Pulpo and one other . This is a Galician style seafood and is really great . Customers seemed to be locals...

We went to this restaurant looking for some octopus and we were not disappointed. The food was amazing. We were 4 people and had one Pulpo a la gallega and Almejas a la marinera. The octopus was huge, you can also order half, but man it was gooood. So if you go, make sure to try it. The place is... More

We found this local restaurant while walking looked amazing enough to share a plate between 3-4 people. We waited 45 mins for a table. The waitress was very busy. After a couple left, we asked if we could have this table. She said all tables were reserved all night. We were first in line, waited 45 mins, locals kept skipping... More

You can enjoy absolutely incredible food for not expensive price. But if you are looking for touristic restorant with high and slow service, don't go there. There are only locals. If you are looking for romantic place, forget it. This place is only for delicious food and family atmosphere.

Delicious! Mi esposo and I arrived about 9:15 on a Saturday night. We did not have reservations although they are highly recommended. The hostess was hesitant to seat us but the owner was not. We received the last table for two. The waiter is adorable. He is patient with our lack of Catalan or Spanish. We ordered the prawns. They... More

We just ate at Retorno. A little nerve wrecking as you walk in. Definitely does not portray the quality of the food. Everything was excellent and fresh! We had the pulpo, spanish ham and cheese, lamb chops, the solomillo and the grilled prawns. All the food was fresh and well prepared. This is a family run restaurant with home made... More

If you like seafood, I'd like to recommend you there. I ordered grilled prawns and steamed mussels. I was satisfied with my dinner because of delicious foods and reasonable prices, However Staff was unfriendly. Excepting that, there was a good restaurant.

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
