Everything in 'O Buraco' is amazing: the food - typical portuguese home made - is always excellent (I go there for the last 15 years regularly), whatever we choose to eat, the service is marvellous, and the price is a surprise.

Another of the places I highly recommend for trying out Portuguese food for a good quality/price ratio! Tight space, always packed due to some very good dishes!

The food in the restaurant was nothing special. The dissapointed bit was that they charged us for entrances we didn’t ordered so At the end we end up paying more than what we should. The owner was bargain the bill.

Found it here, followed the advice and had fish dishes, it was amazing! Restaurant was full of locals, so that was a good sign from the beginning. Staff friendly, but will not come and ask 10 times if the food was good, they know it...More
