A great traditional restaurant, with friendly staff and quality food. The Cataplania is to die for, and the personal service, quite exceptional. This place is quite understated but never fails to please.

We had never visited here before but as a friend recently recommeded this small authentic restuarant we deceided to give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. The staff were friendly and attentive, the food was well cooked and nicely presented. After the covers, I had the grilled sole fillets which were lovely, my husband had the pork tenderloin with pineapple and our two friends had the Portuguese steak. (it is traditionally served with an egg on top but if you prefer it without, that is not a problem). Everyone was happy with their meals, we also had desserts, which were also nice. The bill was very reasonable, especially when compared to other local restaurants. We had a litre of house wine with the main course and had a mixture of beers, spirits and mixers beforehand and the bill total was €80.00 so we will come back again.

We ate here on recommendation from friends. We ordered the portugese steak which was told was really nice, well i have to say we were disappointed it came with a friend egg on top my partner hates fried eggs and a row of potatoes round the pot and that was it, was it worth the money we didnt think so and doubt we would eat here again. The waitress did a good job though being as she was on her own with several tables booked.

Ended up here on a busy evening when everywhere else was booked up (take note if going to Burgau, you'll need to book places!). Nothing particularly wrong with the place it was just very average. They pushed the cover which turned out not to be so cheap. The best part of the atmosphere was Nemo the fish painted on the wall for my toddler to look at!
