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.

This restaurant serves traditional Galician food, one our favorite dishes is "pulpo a la gallega" (baked octopus with potatoes and paprika) which is highly recomended, good value for money with exception of the bread which is quite pricey at around 2 euros per head. The place itself has seen better years, and it looks rundown, they have an outside seating... More

Retorno is back to basics in decor and service but the food is really excellent. I've eaten here a few times over a few years and the food has always been great. If possible go for the outside tables. My favourite dishes are the Octupus served onto a plate of potatoes (Pulpo) and the Razor clams (Navajas), but all seafood... More

Service is a bit rude? Yes, it's a spanish family-run business always stuffed with people....what do you expect? So, you need to be aware of these things when you go to a place like this otherwise it's like going to a BBQ place and expecting the glass for the water and the one for the wine. Cutting to the chase,... More

When we ordered grilled prawns we expected the usual 6 prawns that other restaurants give, so we were astonished to receive a tray loaded to the brim with large king prawns...probable 30 of them, and so deliciously flavored. It was a meal fit for a king! The couple with us meanwhile ordered the seafood platter for two, and a tray... More

I went to this restaurant with my wife and youngest daughter early in the evening (7:20pm), on the recommendation of our hosts. While we don't speak much Spanish, we were rudely turned away from the restaurant, even though there were only a couple of customers, plenty of spare tables, and enough time for us to eat before 'reserved' customers arrived....

From my point of view, this is one of the best seafood restaurants in the city. I have been a couple of times and they do big portions of food and the staff are really nice. They are always full so I will recommend you to book a table and also if you want to eat paella, you need to... More

Had a great fun night at O Retorno in Comte d'Urgell. Attentive service, fabulous seafood, good value and vibrant atmosphere. Loved this place! Recommend 'medio Plato de marisqueria' - prawns, scampi, razor clams, mussels and more. Order with 'pimientos padron'.

I have been here so many times with my friends and we've always had a great time. All plates are to share and portions are very big and delicious. My favourite dishes on the menu are the "Pulpo a la gallega" (Squid with sweet paprika and potatoes - a must!), the "Navajas" (Razor clams) and the "Pimientos de Padron" (non-spicy... More
