We passed this restaurant on our way to the beach, and saw that they had Rack of Lamb on the menu for that night. I went in and booked a table, because this is one of my favourite meals. When i ordered the Rack of Lamb, I wondered why I wasn't asked how I liked it cooked, so I asked... More

delicious that we went back again in the space of a week... always a dangerous tactic for sure! Small, intimate front room directly off the street. Tiled walls lend a certain authenticity and family feel to this restaurant. But if it's local and fresh fish cooked simply or a selection of well prepared meat, such as rack of lamb or... More

Good food reasonably priced and nice staff . Restaurant is quite small so booking is advisable. Try the Portuguese steak followed by the cream pie delicious.

We have been here many times, and each time the quality ha been excellent. We arrived late, and all the restaurants had closed, Os Amigos was also closing, but reopened to feed two weary travelers. Excellent service.

I'm not sure what upset Connor T but we had nothing but good food and good service on four recent visits to this little gem. The place was always busy and the customers seemed to be consistently satisfied I know that we were as were our family / friends who joined us. It does seem a bit extreme to suggest... More

Having arrived late in town we were pleased that we were fitted in as soon as a vacancy occurred at this small fully booked restaurant

Definitely the best cataplana we have eaten in the Algarve. I had the monkfish,clams and prawns and my husband had the chicken,clams and prawns,both served with rice. We have eaten here many times over the past few years and the food is always excellent. Necessary to book as this is a small restaurant.

This restaurant is one of the best in Burgau. We took our son and daughter-in-law and they both enjoyed it so much we ate here again on our last night. The food was superb! The Portuguese Steak is simply gorgeous and my fish (sole) was the best I have ever had! The service was great and they remembered us having... More

Be careful not to miss this gem of a restaurant as you could easily miss it as you walk around Burgau. Be sure to book in advance as Os Amigos is very busy in the holiday season and can only seat about 24 people. Once you have your table sit back and enjoy a superb meal cooked by the lady... More

We arrived to find an empty restaurant, which didn't fill up at any point during our meal. Very traditional Portuguese, but missing all of the qualities of great food.. Both me and my partner ordered the King prawns. Portions were fine, but that's where it all went downhill! When you order chips, they're almost like crisps. One of the meals... More
