“Go for the Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

If your pocketbook allows, go for the experience. Chef will greet you at the table with every course and the food was very good. I requested vegan options and he was able to create and was quite surprised with the options as he was masterful with the flavor and textures. A bit overpriced, but we enjoyed the experience...and remember that is what it is when you dine there. If very hungry and looking for healthy courses - don't go. You will be disappointed.

“ORO FOLLOWS FERRAN ADRIA STYLE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

Felipe Bronze, an experienced chef trained at the CIA, Cullinary Institute of America, is making very modern food helped by some chemical experience as Ferran Adria has offered at EL BULLI, the famous one hour driving from Barcelona restaurant. If you like surprises when you go to dine with your wife or husband try ORO. They are open only for dinners and it´s recommended to make reservations.

“Must go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

Don't miss it, Nouvelle Cousine with a Brazilian accent. Great place, great staff and great food. The food comes to life in front of your eyes through the smoke of liquid nitrogen. And the desserts... I already miss it.

“An Amazing Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

My favorite restaurant in town and for sure the best one.
1-) You need to book, you can call or send an e-mail;
2-) Arrive on time, don't be late, if you are late just call to say it;
3-) Dress well, it will give charm and you will fit in the decoration.
Friendly people, excellent food and service, good wine and you will feel like living an experience and not going to a restaurant just to eat.
Take the 7 dishes tasting menu and pick up a very good wine because ORO's fusion cuisine is excellent and enjoy your time
