Good prawn pasta and chicken periperi. Filet steak was first class. Service with a smile. Worth a visit.

Been to Burgau many time but have never visited this restaurant before. What a gem I've missed. The food and service was excellent. The Pork medallions were the tastiest I've ever had - anywhere! Will be revisiting next year.

We'd been here last year and hoped it would still be as good. It most certainly was and is still in our opinion the best restaurant in Burgau (and we didn't find it any more expensive than any of the others). Delicious food, brilliant service, friendly happy staff - perfect :)

This restaurant deserves a lot of praise. Food prepared with care and attention to detail. Great for Fish and for Red Meat. Large starter portions so be warned. The Crab Salad is enormous, as is the Melon and Prawns. The Portugese Steak is delicious. As with all the restaurants in Burgau, booking in advance necessary.

Esquina is a great restaurant in the village of Burgau. Positioned at the top of the village Esquina is a smart relatively modern restaurant with a good range of local Portuguese dishes. The service from the two owners Natasha and Jorge is first rate!

This is a smart little restaurant with prices at the top end for Burgau. I had a Portugeses steak & was surprised that it came without the traditional fried egg on top, which at nearly €20 is steep even with an egg! Nice if you want a romantic dinner with a smart table dressing but there is better value available... More

This small restaurant is well worth a visit. We had soup followed by vegetarian pasta and pork medallions. Both were excellent and we will definitely recommend to others. Did not find it pricey at all for what we had. Wine was also very good.

Ate at this restaurant 4 times in 10 days. The cataplana dishes were particularly brilliant. Would definitely recommend it

Beautiful restaurant inside. Excellent venue for a special occasion. The prices are higher than the other local places but worth every cent. The staff are very polite and friendly nothing is too much trouble for them. The food was delicious, the fillet steak was cooked to perfection. From where we were sitting I could see it being cooked. Well worth... More

Cracking early evening meal- popped in early with our little two year old, had one of the best steaks I have eaten (Portugal fillet) and Mrs Dave had the Monkfish stew which she said was amazing. Bread and olives to start, kiddies spaghetti Bol for Little Dave, bottle of wine and two beers-all for 55 euros, well worth it! Would... More
