Excellent restaurant with a real emphasis on service. This restaurant had really improved since our last visit to burgau last year . Ate here 2 nights and both meals were very good . Sampled both the fish and meat options, both delicious. Genuine homemade Portuguese desserts. Will be back

I've been going to Burgau for 15 years and never been to this place until it was recommended to me by a colleague last year and what an amazing surprise! I took some friends to the village this year and so wanted to make sure they had a lovely meal, no-one was disappointed at all. The owner/waiter ran the place single handedly and still managed to put some lovely personal touches on the service. The food was absolutely delicious, the cataplana was the best I've tasted in Burgau and the desserts were all so so good and freshly made. The rest of the party had steaks which were cooked so perfectly. Literally only good things to say about his place, I'll be back next year 100%.

On the slipway down to burgau beach, this is a hidden gem. Small but cosy with authentic cooking. The swordfish was excellent as were the steaks which our party enjoyed. Good value for good food with excellent service from one waiter. Will return again.

This restaurant was an unexpected find, tucked away in Largo o Poco
It had just the traditional portuguese food we always hope to find - well cooked and cheerfully served up by a family team

O Refugio is tucked away in a side street and you could easily walk past without noticing it. This would be a shame because they do offer excellent food at reasonable prices. It is not a gastronomic experience but if you are looking for excellent Portuguese dishes that are well cooked then give it a try. We visited twice on our holiday and will return when we get back to Burgau.
