Ranked #15 of 90 Restaurants in Esposende

Although our hake and cod wasn't the best we've had, it came with great mashed potato and was preceded by tasty tapas beforehand with our house wine. It's the atmosphere and friendly service that was best and if it's warm enough you can sit outside in a beautiful plaza and sparkling yacht fountain.

This nice restaurante was recommended by our portuguese host. We had some luck and got a table just after a few minutes waiting during rush hour. Seems that there is mostly no free table.

The place is a bit specialist on meat and you get a good quality there. We had a mixed meat plate for 2 pers., vegetarian meal and many different side orders. But also the vegtables and "others" from the menue was good. Since we didn't tried the red wine I can't say anything about it but the white wine and beer was tasty (also have some different craft and stoud beers + of course the local "super bock".

Prices were medium but not expensive and definately worth the quality (~70€ for 3 persons and we had many drinks + bottle of wine ;) ).
The staff was very proffesional, friendly, fast and sometime even funny :)

All together we had some nice hours there and didn't spend too much money

We went to the souterrain restaurant on a Wednesday night and had some nice starters and a good vine. The waiter spoke English quite well and helped us decide for one of the main dishes. We chose the tenderloin steak and the monkfish rice. Both of the portions were really enormous and incredibly good. The steak came with fries and some salad, the fish rice with two prawns on top.
The excellent meals, the fine service, and the moderate prices make the 'O Buraco' a must for visitors in Esposende!

Went on a quiet Sunday evening, was told they would be closing early in 30-45 minutes, so felt rushed to order and eat. Food was good, but was overcharged for the fish - 0.8kg for a small Dourada! Double the price for a similar size fish I had at the neighbouring Foz do Cavado the previous night. I am currently out in this area for several weeks on business - I won't be returning here again, but will be returning to Foz do Cavado.

We dined here three times during our stay in Esposende, usually eating steak and pork dishes, the food was well prepared and tasted great, and the waiter we had for our meals was very accomodating and friendly. Best part is the price, almost feels wrong to pay so little for a meal, but it meant a healthy tip at the end (and well deserved). Would absolutely go here again if ever in the area.
