My wife and I decided to come here for dinner. The food was good but the service did not appeal to its own standards! They showed an attitude equivalent to a star restaurant to welcome us. We selected two starters and a fish to share. Instead of ordering a full bottle of white wine, we decided to drink by the... More

Lovely place fab people with the best attentive service ! Food is of the best quality . My husband is very very fussy on his steak ... He reports it to be the best on the western algarve ! Don't go here unless you're hungry . One downside is they want cash only .

Two excellent meals here during our recent holiday. First class service and wonderful food. Yes, it's more expensive than others in the village ,but worth it.

....or you will miss what we considered to be the best Restaurant in Burgua. Four of us ate at many restaurants there but none matched the quality of food ,ambiance and professionalism of the staff. Indeed we all considered our meal to be amongst the best we have had for sometime!

We have dined in fine restaurants for over 30 years and we have been in Portugal for two weeks and this is the first time we have ever received rude service: from the co-owner, Angelica no less. The other co- owner, Daniel was welcoming, witty, and passionate about food. We ordered appetizers from him and asked if we could wait... More

We had a good meal here on our first night in Burgau. The food could not be faulted but the service was a bit manic, with the head waiter running all over the restaurant (a but like Faulty Towers but not in a bad way!). Would definitely return and recommend to others.

Happened across the Ancora during our first stroll around the village and luckily they found us a table - the place quickly filled up and after our delicious steak and chicken dishes we understood why. Fabulous friendly service - we will return!
