Fantastic place!

We love the Beach Bar! Yes, you have to book, it's busy because it's so good. All the staff are just charming, they take personal pleasure in ensuring your meal is top quality. And that view...! Have the fish or the steak kebab. And the car and pudding is amazing. It's all good.

Fantastic spot, lovely views and cool breezes. Food good but little choice, surprising as expected a lot more having to wait a minimum of 3 days (yes you heard it 3 days) before a reservation was available. The main let down was the service as very poor, not too family friendly and very slow poor service.

The beach in Burgau is small and was not crowded when we were there in July. We actually came back because we liked this beach restaurant so well. The staff is super friendly and they seem very coordinated. The menu is different from typical beach restaurants, with 4-5 dishes that are special for the day. The kid menu is larger... More

Any visitors to Burgau can't help but be campivated by its beautiful beach. The beach bar is lovely too; perfect location, nice food and it's remarkably well maintained considering the sand and strong winds they have to content with. But oh, oh ,oh why don't they greet you, smile perhaps, make you feel even vaguely welcome? Maybe it's a cultural... More

We called in hoping to be able to eat but we were told it was fully booked. Approximately 50% of the tables were vacant but all had reserved signs on. We stayed for about an hour enjoying drinks at the bar the tables remained 50% vacant throughout. When we left we were given a card and advised to book two... More

We had been to this restaurant about 10 years ago and thought it was great. We were in the area and went on spec at around 6.15 but despite it being completely empty we were told we couldn't have a table because we did not have a reservation. What upset us was the demeanour and the arrogance of the individual... More

Burgau Beach Bar is set right on Burgau beach. It has a great outside area aswell as a simple but adequate inside seating area, you can open up the windows to enjoy the breeze which is great since it has been around 30 degrees lately. The beach bar is perfect for lunch, with a simple but fresh menu, but is... More

We have been eating here for many years. We must have eaten every dish on the menu and have always had a wonderful meal. The fish "catch of the day" serves super fresh fish which is always our first choice. In June we ate red snapper, corvina and sardines which were all just perfect. Service is very willing and polite... More

Lovely bar/restaurant. Sat here most days for lunch, sagres beer or a nice cold sangria. Tried to book for dinner but they get very busy so make sure you book early or you will miss out Will definitely go back to Burgau and spend most days here again
