“Fantastic Portuguese fare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

We happened across this small bistro looking for lunch while cycling around Rutland Water and fancied something other than 'pub grub.' How glad we were we found Loretta's! It's a simple, unpretentious restaurant serving great food and fabulous coffee. We all went for the salt cod fish cakes which were only £5.50 for a sizeable portion and were beautiful. We then all followed with the homemade Portuguese egg custard tarts which were undoubtedly the best we have ever had. I'm still dreaming about the pastry! Deserves to be much higher up the Oakham list on tripadvisor and we shall certainly be back!

“Right in the middle of Oakham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

We popped in for coffee on a Sunday afternoon. Great coffees - and you are given a long spoon to make the most of the frothy stuff.
Service is very good. But what made our visit special was the welcome and a great family atmosphere. We will return and try the food soon.
