“Fabulous place”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

We've never had a bad meal here here for all the many 30-odd years we've been to Burgau. Their Chicken Piri-Piri is the best in Burgau. Very hot and spicy. Don't try it if you don't like hot spicy food though. They always have fish of the day, freshly caught, and other specials too. Hubby had the best steak he's ever had - melted in the mouth. This is absolute beachfront too, so has fab views. They are open throughout the day, so it's good while you're on the beach to get drinks etc.

“On the beach - good food and a beer, what's not to like?!?!?”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

You rent two sun chairs and an umbrella for 12 Euro, head up the stairs for a lovely seafood lunch with wine/beer and then head back to the chairs to relax... What could be better. Very good food and wine although you can just buy a sandwich if you'd like from the snack bar outside which also serves ice creams. We always had lunch here and were never unhappy.

“Lovely meal in a greta location”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Have just returned from 2 weeks in Burgau where my wife and I and two friends were able to try a number of the village restaurants.

We used the Beach Bar on a good number of occasions and were always impressed with the quality of the food, service and of course location. The fresh fish is spectacular especially if you reserve an outside table (with a bit of shade).

We found the staff to be very attentive and polite.


I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant. - Restaurant is closed on Mondays!

“We went everyday....”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Just sitting on their verandah for the afternoon, the view varies every look. The food is a good standard, not what you expect for a beach. There is a snack hatch so everyone is suited. Kids are welcomed as people in their own right. It's busy and buzzy whilst you just sit and watch the world go by. Evening dining is in the same setting but with a different feel, same menu and staff but less busy so they and you are free to stop and relax together just that touch.

“Name says it all”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

This restaurant does not deceive - it is a bar/eating place on the beach at Burgau. Could not be mistaken for a Gordon Ramsay outlet, but location is truly exceptional and unlike previous reviewers, we found the food of good quality and the service both friendly and efficient. Always busy for dinner - better to book. The menu offers a wide range of dishes - struck me as strange given the fish is so good and the dessert options can trigger no complaints - it's as if portion control had not been invented. For a table with a view, this takes some beating. Check it out!
