We found this place late in our holiday. It's easy to miss. A small green door on one of the roads down to the square. In fact to get in you have to have both leaves of the door open. It is small inside, only about a dozen small tables but it makes up for that in friendliness of the... More

We did not intend to dine at this restaurant however after a walk through town it seemed like a better choice based on the fact there were only a few tables. We made a good choice. The owner was very attentive and friendly and the food was wonderful. If you are looking for a small restaurant with Portuguese food consider... More

Wonderful food and staff, best Portuguese steak I've had and I've tried many restaurants in Portugal. Reasonably priced for the quality of food served. You will need to book during the summer months as the restaurant is small and gets booked up very quickly but definitely worth the visit!

Food is consistently of a very high standard and good value for money. Quite small so you need to book in advance.

Although the place is small and booking is well advised it has a pleasant atmosphere. I ordered Portuguese steak and had no idea what it was until it arrived. The fillet steak was cooked to perfection as I had ordered it rare. Only downside is it can be very warm in there during summer months due to the size but... More

This was recommended to us by the villa owners we hired from, but we would not return. Our service was very average, although the locals were better attended to. The covers arrived at intervals rather than together, which did not put us at our ease, although main courses served to us were tasty and hot. Good value ... not really.

This is a very small place but the food is very good and it's really cheap. The fish is very fresh and cooked beautifully. You need to book in advance like most places in burgau but it's worth it
