“Good but looks a bit fancier than it can justify”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Nito is next door to Hotel Ego and offers a full restaurant as well as a bar area which offers smaller dishes and also provides room service to the hotel.
The restaurant itself is very grand looking inside and has a real formality to it that made me feel a little out of place, but generally there doesn’t seem to be a reason for this atmosphere. Perhaps it is different when it is busier and full of activity because when I went it there it was mid-week and a bit dry and quiet.

The food was good though and not overly expensive – good sized portions too. It isn’t as fancy as the place suggests though and there wasn’t the flair in the presentation that the rest of place suggested there should be.

Still, a good place, a little bit more expensive in the main area than I think it justified and I’m not sure why it presents itself with as much formality as it does, but still a very nice place.

“Goof food, amazing views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

I came with my family on the 2012 summer and enjoyed a good galician meal -bonito en rollo, merluza de pincho, entrecot, pimientos rellenos, croquetas... Everything very good at prices according to the quality. But what makes this place unique are the amazing views from the restaurant terrace. Perfect for a dinner at sunset, when you can enjoy a fantastic 180º view of the Viveiro estuary. First class service.

“Expected better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Did not live up to our expectations. Food good but not great. Service ok, but as it was quite, and could have been better. Great views. We went for the set menu which was quite heavy overall. We had better in Galicia.

“Superb food, excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

As guests of the Ego hotel we decided to have a "comida" in the Nito.
We selected the Menu, as it promised a balanced and tasty set of courses.

We were thrilled with the quality and presentation, as well as with the level of service provided. The wine suggested by the waiter was very complementary to the seafood platters of the menu.
The great view over the Ria de Viveiro looking out over the Atlantic ocean was definately a bonus.

Highly recommended.
