“Back again”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

We always visit here when we are in Burgau,mainly for the views.
It's always busy & it's best to book a table,even at lunch time,as if there are more than two of you there's little chance of you all sitting together.
I didn't think it was particularly over priced,as the previous post, apart from the bread & butter I ordered to go with my sardines.
€1.80 for a roll and an individual foil pack of butter is extortionate.
Still-I guess you pay for the view.

“Poor Service & Over Priced”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Visited in the middle of the day & found the service lacking any friendliness or warmth. We were told that the barman that you couldn't order wine by the glass only the bottle (confusing as many around us were able to order by the glass). This was remedied by a waiter who took my wine by the glass order no problem????
We checked the menu and decided against ordering food as the selection was very overpriced and we were not impressed by what we seen being delivered to fellow diners.
This was so disappointing as it was one of the places we were sure that we would frequent almost every day of our holiday. We took our business to places that we were appreciated and welcomed.

“Our Favourite Holiday Bar and Restaurant”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

We have recently returned from our fifth holiday staying near to Burgau, our favourite beach. The main attraction is the Beach Bar situated on the beach and overlooking the sea. We like to visit the bar for a beer before lunch sitting outside very close to the beach. We purchase ice creams in the afternoon to eat on the beach and we visit the restaurant in the evening for delicious selection of local fish and steaks or chicken. The dishes are served in Portuguese style with fantastic salad. They offer a good selection of beers, wine and cocktails. The business is owned by the same family for several years and they make customers feel welcome and valued. We would like to return for our sixth year next year.

“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.
