We ate here twice in a week because we liked the straightforward presentation of the place with bench-seats and big windows. There is an amusing waiter (although maybe not always deliberately so) who ensures that everyone is well aware of the fish that are available. It's probably fair to say that this restaurant specialises in fish-dishes but the Piri-piri chicken was excellent (in a market where there is a lot of competition for this dish!).
The waiters are very organised and professional and the man who will take your order is very good at answering any enquiries.
As with all restaurants in Burgau, a pre-booking is advisable.

OK and we liked it but....on visiting with some friends we found seven covers on the bill for four of us. The reaction was "oh Damn I've been caught" not a word of apology. Next time we went a drink was added. Same reaction. We went, foolishly I think, yet again, same problem, we said we'd never be back and haven't been. Stupid really as we live in the village and used to go two or three times a month.

Family of nine, no reservation, no problem (probably would be later in the season!). Excellent fresh fish, shown at the table. The Cataplana fish stew was wonderful if a little messy to eat! Maybe that’s just us :-) Very good price, charming service. The Burgau Beach bar has the edge on location, the car park around A Barraca is not a problem though your view can be blocked by surfers’ vans. But the food and service are just as good and this is a great place for lunch.

This place will live long in our memory and still can’t believe the brilliant food, service and value for money.
A four course meal including Cataplana for two, 2 bottles of wine, port and coffee all for 72 Euros.
The Cataplana and homemade desserts were superb.
