Let's start with the location: can you imagine a better place to eat when you are in middle of precious mountains with a beautiful swimming pool? The Burgo offers all this and more. Excellent meat and fish, good wine list and supreme good dessert (pyjama). We had stewed boar with chestnuts, grilled ox with migas and chicken with mushrooms. All... More

We enjoyed the taste of Portugal and were amazed at the meal. A taste of everything was a great introduction to Porguese cuisine. The staff were incredibly friendly. It was a little far from our hotel, but was worth the drive.

If you like mountain food, like goat, deer and boar you have to try the food in this restaurant. The quality is very good, the staff is very friendly and the view is very beautiful. This restaurant is in the midlle of the mountain.

Very cosy and typical place, great service with good sugestions and very well cooked portuguese fresh ingredientes. For people who like nature, the surroudings of the restaurante are awesome and a great start place to do some trekking around a few paths of Serra da Lousã.

Very tasty food. We have ordered wild boar with chestnuts and venison mushrooms. The potatoes melted the flavor of the venison and the chestnuts sweetened the aroma of the wild boar. Very impressed.

The restaurant is in the middle of a nature paradise that creates the mood for the meal experience. Inside the restaurant follows a Portuguese rural decoration with good taste. The food exceled all my expectations. I had coat meat (chanfana)... More

We had dinner in O Burgo, but this is also a fine place to have lucy since it is just by the natural pools where you can swim. The space is very nice with welcoming decor and nice staff. The food was very tasty traditional local food, like it was home made. The deserts were mouth-watering.

The location, at the foot of an ancient castle, and on a river, is amazing. The food is all local, mountain dishes that are made in a long standing tradition. So, the pig's ear and liver may not be for everyone, but there is so much to try on the menu that this out of the way gem is well... More
