It is very difficult to single out any one of the many excellent restaurants in Burgau as every one seems to be the best while you are there, but the next one you eat in soon takes over.

Had a lovely meal here on a wet and windy night last week!! Our waitress was absolutely lovely, friendly and knowledgable. Meals and wine really nice. Waitress brought over a bowl of melon for my 9 month old which was lovely and thoughtful. Will return on next holiday here.

From coming to Burgau twice a year for the past 24 years I can say the service here has to be one of the best if not the best. Family run restaurant, Angelica and Daniel always deliver a very personal service! Great food, great portions, worth every cent!!

While all the dishes are so tasty my usual fayer is the seafood cocktail and the house fillet steak.... More

I had catch of the day the first visit which was beautiful. Filleted at the table too and the skill is undeniable. My partner had the steak skewers in curry sauce. They... More

We visit this area of Portugal regularly and usually manage to dine here at least once a year. On this occasion there were just the two of us. The welcome is superb.
