I confess I wouldn't visit Borges if I was by myself. It is located on a narrow alley and parking lots are short. However, both the service and the food are flawless. Definitely, one of the best Restaurants in the area and surely a big surprise.

Me and my boyfriend went for a dinner to Borges restaurant based on the reviews from tripadvisor which are excellent and definitely true! The menu consists of seafood, meat and fish dishes. I went for the squid and shrimps on the spit and my boyfriend chose fish. Both meals were delicious! The waiter Luis was very attentive and funny. At... More

A little hard to find the first time, but you'll see why people keep coming back. The food is served with class and the steak we ordered was tender and delicious, cooked according to our specifications. Their specialty is seafood, but we had had quite a bit of seafood that week, so we opted for steak. We were not disappointed.... More

Much worth knowing! Never disappoints! I keep coming back! Everything is taken care to detail: great portuguese food (very good chef), super staff, great lidership (Mr. Borges, I presume...). Set in a low profile place, hidden like any gem. That razor clams rice is just fantastic! like everything else... And the price, a pleasant surprise considering the quality.

Very good portuguese cuisine, nicely done. Tender and tasty meat, and very fresh fish and seafood. Either seafood açorda or roasted young goat, were excellent (the three of us shared two doses, one dose each dish, and was plenty). Looking forward to the opportunity to eat the razor clams rice (the waiter kindly got my contact to call me when... More

Nice steaks and fish. Typical portuguese food, very well prepared and seasoned. Business lunch and dinner with friends dinner are the most appropriate occasions.

Borges is well known in the region as a place where you can have a very good meal at reasonable prices. Very fresh fish, old traditional dishes, it really deserves a visit. Just beware that it can be very full at weekends
