“superb!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

We have just returned from a weeks holiday in Burgau and visited here twice. The food was out of this world, rustic Portugese, the calamari was the nicest i have ever eaten, Portugese pork was divine, as well as the cataplana, plenty to eat, great service,good value, we were both made very welcome, well worth a visit.

“Secluded and quaint yet not bad.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

I have had a few meals in here over the years and my time when living in Burgau. To the point where my usual accepted greeting was "Boa tarde Mama" as I entered. I was caught out by the "Portuguese Steak dish, which had a snail sauce (not my thing!) But good value for money nosh if you're on a budget.

“Enjoy rustic, traditional Portugese dinner in a secluded spot in Burgau”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

If you crave for home cooked, traditional Portugese food you should try this restaurant. Beware that they only take cash.
