Our host suggested this restaurant when we were starving and couldn't find any decent restaurant in the neighborhood, so we decided to give it a try. It was OK, pretty decent and authentic and cheap. Their whole team deserves all our respect: they're very busy,...More

Bread, tomato rice and "escalopes" and a coffee. A little overpriced for just a normal lunch, the room were hot.

The place was near my accomodation and I am always in a hunt for places where locals go. O Buraco didn't dissappoint us. The people were friendly and stopped us by ordering too much. The white wine of the house is good but the price...More

When I am downtown for lunch I find myself at O Buraco most of the times. The service is simple and fast, the food is excellent, and exactly as you remember from when you first went there with your grandparents. Fried fish is a lunch...More
