We had dinner for two at O Retiro. The restaurant looks nice, but is a bit chaotic and not really cosy. We had grilled fish and pork, which was both extremely salted. That is a pity, because lots of other fresh spices are available in...More

We were taken to this restaurant and quite surprised. The food was really good. Lovely steak with wonderful sauce. I am not a meat eater but my company is and he was also very happy. Further there is really nothing to complain.

Sat outside in a rather basic patio area as it was a hot evening. The food was good, no complaints, the steaks and the veal were excellent. We enjoyed our evening but it needs re-furbishing outside as the inside looked great. Would eat there again.
