It's a traditional Portuense tasca, you'll eat well, for a cheap price, noisy restaurant, efficient service, fast and friendly people. Good choice for having dinner with a group.

The concierge of our hotel had recommended this little restaurant nearby. We went and had an out-of-time experience. The restaurant is small and you can tell it serves good food because it's full of locals who seem to be enjoying themselves. The waiter spoke only...More

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

A bussling place always full of locals and tourists. You could get a quick meal or linger, but the food was always good.

Firstly this place is not in a particularly picturesque area - crammed in between very plain shops and offices - but don't let that put you off. Once inside the neat and pleasant two floor locals restaurant, we were whisked to our table and before...More

Thanks to other positive Trip Advisor reviews we decided to give O Buraco a go as it was nearby. It looks very unassuming from the outside and it's pretty unlikely we'd have chosen it without having seen the reviews beforehand, but the place was bustling...More
