Uncaring waiters, lack of englis communication. Other wise cheap food, frequently visited by locals.

Everything in 'O Buraco' is amazing: the food - typical portuguese home made - is always excellent (I go there for the last 15 years regularly), whatever we choose to eat, the service is marvellous, and the price is a surprise.

Another of the places I highly recommend for trying out Portuguese food for a good quality/price ratio! Tight space, always packed due to some very good dishes!
