“Disappointed”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Having read the reviews we thought this would be a great little restaurant but overall we were disappointed. It was a quiet Sunday afternoon and there were very few customers. Our food came promptly but it was one of our more average meals of the holiday. My wife had a chicken stew in a pot. But the sauce was watery and lacked flavor.

“Great Food, Great Service!!”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

This is a little gem of a family run restaurant. Prettily decorated, with a very varied menu including lots of local specialities. Nina cooks, whilst Luis looks after guests with great wine recommendations and attentive service. The tapas style starter with Chourico cooked at the table is tasty, we also loved the "chicken in a pot". Plenty of fish too for fish lovers, you wont go hungry here!! All in all excellent value for money, great atmosphere and even a cosy little bar area too. We'll be back (again!!).

“Excellent”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

We stayed in Salema for 2 weeks and O Buzio opened on the last night we were there. It almost made us cry as our meal, rabbit in red wine and chicken in clay pot, was so good that we wanted more. The desert, egg whites with a bit of sugar baked until they would stay stiff and covered in caramel sauce, was a perfect way to end the meal.
