Is 'they return from the restaurant' wrong? It was not accepted!

"They return to the restaurant" is different than "They return from the restaurant".

They return to the restaurant = They were at the restaurant, they left, and now they're back at the restaurant.

They return from the restaurant = They were at the restaurant, they left, and now they're back home.

However, I don't know how to say "They return from the restaurant" in Portuguese

They return from the restaurant = eles voltam/retornam do restaurante.
