“Good value Portuguese food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

I liked the atmosphere of O Buraco. It´s a real spot for locals but you also get plenty of tourists now! The service is excellent. The staff are helpful and friendly and the food has good variety and value for money. I had Arroz de Pato and it was very tasty. It sometimes gets pretty crowded for dinner. Maybe best to go in as late as possible. Lunchtimes can be busy too. It serves good food, so it´s popular!!!

“Lovely Portuguese Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

We had dinner here based on the recommendations by locals on the forum. We were very pleased with the quality of the food. The staff and owners speak just a spattering in english if any but there was a menu in english which helped make things much easier. The food we had was of excellent value especially considering the two of us ate for less than 30 euros. At the end of the meal, although the desserts I wanted had ran out, the staff were accommodating enough to combine three desserts into one instead, which gave me a chance to try three for the price of one, great example of the level of service despite the language barrier.

“Excellent meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Great meal with really friendly service, even for 2 tourists whose command of the portuguese language consists solely of obrigado. We thought it was excellent value at about 20euro for 2 people for dinner. Came recommended from a local and didn't disappoint.
