We were recommended this restaurant by friends and were so glad we tried it! Our whole dining experience was a delightful one. The staff were great - helpful, attentive and humorous. They really welcomed our four year old grandson and we felt relaxed throughout. The food was delicious, presented beautifully and definitely not any dearer than other restaurants we ate... More

We have been eating at Ancora for many years now and each time it surpasses our previous years experience. Angelica and Daniel are the perfect hosts with excellent food especially the fish - sea bass was amazing! Just one thing though where have the peas gone - please please can we have them back!?

A stat in Burgau would not be complete without dinner in Ancora, always very friendly with excellent choice of fish and some of the best steaks around. Wine list is superb.

We had a real mixture of starters, from stuffed mushrooms to Thai prawn salads, and everyone agreed that they were all fantastic! Before ordering we were shown a selection of the fish available, all fresh local produce. For... More

First visited this restaurant with family in the 1990's. Rang from UK to secure booking but on arrival no record of this. Not a problem and we enjoyed a lovely meal of turbot filleted at the table by co-owner. A desert to die for- chocolate with local liqueur. As with many restaurants no cards are accepted so make sure you... More
