Came for dinner at recommendation of hotel concierge. Great service, attentive staff. Old world style, very traditional. The food is very good and tasty, but the portions are very big and we could not finish it. An enjoyable experience dining here.

Dora is the traditional downtown restaurant specializing in Spanish / Seafood food. Great service by experienced waitresses, the way it used to be 20-30 years ago

Had dinner here and thoroughly enjoyed the food. It is however a very brightly lit old cafe style restaurant. No romance to be found. Large portions, we split the entree. Had garlic shrimp appetizer, sole entree, broccoli and spinach, finished with strawberries and cream. Great...More

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to
and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied
by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest.
