This restaurant has a very nice menu. It's very hard not to pick a starter, main course and dessert because they're very well described and enticing! Portuguese steak is the house speciality, and very good it was, according to my wife. I had the Skate Wing, which was slightly overcooked, but I managed to finish the lot, so no complaints... More

Well established family restaurant, bang in the middle of Burgau, always popular so book ahead. Good menu with plenty of variety, friendly and very efficient service, reasonably priced, always a good buzz about the place.

Working our way through the trip advisor top 10 in Burgau - this one was definitely worthy. Delicious dinner - monkfish stew and tuna with onions both fantastic mains and served on bed of lovely fried potatoes. Prawn starter was also amazing. Can imagine that tables are a little too close if the restaurant is full but this wasn't an... More

If I have one word to describe this eating experience it has to be excellent. Any restaurant that is unafraid to cook in front of its customers has my vote. We have booked for another evening and we are really looking forward to it.

We were surprised at the price of all restaurants in Burgau and this one is no different. Meals are tasty, especially the piri piri chicken. This restaurant was not the Portuguese experience we were hoping for.

Very welcoming, friendly, and the food was wonderful. Highly recommend. The restaurant was very busy, but they still found a space for us!

Natasha and Jorge (the owners) along with the lady chefs in the kitchen make this a go to restaurant. It has recently been updated and decorated and the ambience has improved. Both of the owners are characters in their own rights. It is a pleasure and privilege to eat in this restaurant. The food is of a consistently high standard,... More

The service and atmosphere of this elegant restaurant in the center of the small village of Burgau could be comparable to a restaurant of fine dining in central London. It is unexpected and immensely pleasurable. The service is intelligent and first class, the food never disappointing. Thank you for many cherished evenings.

Me and my partner visited last week after being recommended by the Italian restaurant on the opposite corner who they said they served the best Cataplana in town. We were not disappointed! We had piri piri chicken and chorizo to start with followed by the monkish Cataplana which was exceptional! We finished off with a wonderful coffee liquor. Great atmosphere,... More

A small, intimate (and, rightly so, busy) restaurant run by the charming couple George and Tash which never fails to provide excellent food, attentive service and all delivered with a smile. Esquina is always on our "must visit" list when we make our regular sojourns to the beautiful Burgau!
