“Incredible Location, good food, efficient staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2011

Have had lunch here on many occasions over past 5 years and we are always impressed. We have not yet had the pleasure of dinner here. The location is second to none, sitiing at the, and on the top of the beautiful Burgau beach!

Tables outside on the veranda or inside in a cooler environment. This is the perfect place to lunch when spending a day on the beach - food, service and atmosphere are all great. From visiting, I recognise the sons of the owner, and they lead by example, looking after customers and being extremely efficient on very busy days. Jimmy, who works in the bar, is a Burgau institution and knows anybody worth knowing.

From our recent visit, I can highly recommend the Tuna Salad, Goats Cheese Salad and Chicken Piri Piri. Service as always was excellent with lots of staff - and you wouldnt mind waiting a while, sitting on a veranda table, looking out at the Atlantic, sipping from a jug of the Beach Bar's wonderful mixed berry and champagne sangria, or for cheaper option, the white sangria is wonderful also.

Just a little pricey, but I will pay the pemium for the view and experience every time !We hope to return many, many times!

“Don't miss it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2011 via mobile

Good but simple food, well prepared in a stunning location with very competent service. You have to book ahead of time but it's a must do while in Burgau.

“Good Food terrific location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2011

Had dinner twice and lunch once during our visit. Beautiful beachside location. Booking essential if you want one of the outside tables but well worth the effort. Young staff but very friendly and efficient. Food was consistently good. Particular likes, the warm goats cheese salad and the grilled halibut.. We also liked the honesty re service times i.e. if they had a spike of customers just before you they let you know and gave you options. Some U.K. restaurants take note!

“Nice setting, nice place to be.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2011

This beach bar is located right on the beach, salads are presented well, my partner always eats the Lamb chops normally they serve 8, with mint sauce he loves them. Deserts great, extra €1,80 for a small amount of ice cream was my only complaint. Will go back. Must book in the summer.

“Best sea views of any restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2011

Great restaurant, good food and friendly staff. Sitting right on the beach at Burgau you won't get a better sea view than this!
A casual atmosphere with a good range of menu offerings to suit most tastes. The fish is fresh and always to be recommended. Good for lunch or dinner and reasonably priced.
