Oro is a spacious venue with a large circular bar in the middle. The tables are intimate and cosy, perfect for a dinner date, and tastefully decorated in line with a fine-dining restaurant; elegant lamps on each table are a nice touch. The waiters are enthusiastic and will gladly chat about the Sicilian chef, before running through some of the specialties on the menu and telling you everything about each dish in great detail. A few of the options that sound promising, such as the veal tenderloin, end up lacking the final level of refinement when it comes to flavour, yet overall Oro’s offering is very strong, with a wide and nicely thought out menu. If it could just iron out a few kinks, it could be a great restaurant.

  • Would you go back to this restaurant? No

Our experience at this restaurant was very bad and I would not go back, nor recommend it. Below are the issues we've had:

1) When we placed the order, I wanted the "Grilled Fish" platter. I do not like seafood, but I eat fish. I specifically asked the server whether this dish has seafood also or only fish, since I only wanted fish. She assured me that it is only fish. When the food came, it was half seafood. I sent it back, of course, explaining that I had asked and I don't want seafood. One of the servers came to tell me that I would be charged extra. After a very interesting conversation, I guess they agreed they should not charge me extra.

2) The quality of the food is merely average, absolutely no flavor to it, nothing special at all. We were a group of 5, none of us thought the food had anything special.

3) Their prices are high for what they offer. You can find some many very good restaurants is leading 5 start hotels where you can really get good food. This is not one of them.
