“A real birthday treat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

My friends and I have recently returned from the Algarve and one of our party had their birthday last week so Caravela was booked for a special meal. It did not disappoint!

The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and the staff were attentive and made us feel very welcome.

We all had different meals, which we all enjoyed but the steak with pepper sauce for the birthday girl was excellent. We then enjoyed a coffee and complimentary port on the terrace, which made for a lovely ending to a special meal.

Caravela will be on our list for our next visit to Burgau!

“Best restaurant in Burgau”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

Having visited Burgau annually for over 15 years, we find the Caravella to offer the best combination of food and service in the village. Antonio and his staff are friendly and helpful without being intrusive and the food is second to none. The restaurant is very traditional with a well thought out menu topped off by a couple of flambe dishes (Steak and sole) which are expertly cooked at the table. Even the opening covers offer the best of variety, including spicy sausage, pate and local cheese as well as sardine and cheese spreads.

Our son held his wedding reception here last year after marrying in Luz and as ever, we were not disappointed!
