We discovered Burgau half way through our week's holiday and wished we had found it earlier. It might not be everyone's choice but for a senior couple it offered everything we needed.
The Beach bar is placed direct at the back of the sandy, gentle shelving beach and provides sunbeds, umbrellas, snack bar and restaurant. The staff are all very welcoming and pleasant and all food is prepared to order. Our experience was during the day we did not stay to try the evening restaurant.

We had a nice dinner here but didn't go back as it was very pricey and the seating inside is benches, not conducive to sitting and sipping your wine. The sea view is fab, the food was average, the wine was good and cold. We had lunch sandwiches a couple of times and these were better value and the girl in that kiosk works very very hard and makes a good sarnie.

Nice enough location on the beach and relatively local to where we were staying so we thought we would give it a go.

My 3 year old ordered fish and chips which seemed to me some Findus speciality rather than fresh cooked fish which is what I thought we'd find on the beach. We had a couple of starters and then were hoping for more Portugese specialities such as Cataplana which I believe may be on the lunch menu but not at dinner which was a disappointment. Meal for 3 including a litre of sangria was 59 euros. Seems a bit steep to me particularly given we ate lunch the next day at a restaurant on Faro beach, sampling Cataplana and drinks for only 40 euros.

Very average here!

This bar has probably the best location in Burgau, and is the almost only restaurant there that doesn't have cars parked directly outside or driving past the windows. The food is fresh and fairly traditional, offering standard if underseasoned dishes.
We ate an evening meal on a Saturday in August, and had to book several days in advance. My daughter had grilled salmon, usually a sound bet but this was a disappointment, maybe cooked by somebody new to a grill. Drinks are a bit expensive, more so than other places in Burgau. Overall the location, right on the beach, made up for everything else.
As a daytime beach bar, it is the best we found in two weeks. Convenient, very friendly and helpful staff, big enough not to get full during the day.

Well 2 years on it is still the number one for sangria! The balance of wine,spirits and other ingredients is absolutely spot on! The food quality is good here too although limited choice and a greta beach side setting, but i come back and will keep coming back, even in spirit form when I am dead and gone for the amazing sangria!!!!!
