Service was poor from the start, did not seem to be happy that we elected to eat outside, I was presented with a bill that I thought was high but as it was poorly printed and the light was low I could not see that I was charged 5 x for my daughters burger, returned the next evening and was...

Having had a great meal here a year ago, we thought a return visit was in order. The slightly tacky fish on the wall have been painted over and the place looks all the better for it. As this is the best place to get a cataplana in Burgau this is what we went for. Don't worry its as good... More

I went to Matias and I thought that the food was delicious. I recommend the piri piri chicken kebab it was very tasty! The service was also very good.

Returned to this lovely restaurant after eighteen months and was greeted like the best customer in the world. Even got a cheery wave from the chef. Our food was excellent as was the service. Will be back next year.

We arrived to find Place full and we had no booking. We were offered table to have a glass of Wine and wIt for service which we were glad we did. As we had a large lunch we didn't want much so we both went for Sole which was really top notch. My Partner went for potatoes and veg and... More

We ate here twice & both times the food was very good & the service friendly & efficient. Portugese steak was described by my friend as one of the best steaks he had ever had-- and came with the traditional egg unlike some other restaurant, and was around €7 cheaper. Good value- recommended .

We finally managed to get a booking as was full when we tried previously so very popular. We had Portuguese steak and tuna steak, both of which were excellent. Lucia is on the ball in this restaurant, which is run like a well oiled ship. Would certainly recommend to others and will be back.

This restaurant is just off the square in Burgau, Portuguese style menu, the food is all cooked fresh and cooked to perfection! The staff are friendly, I thoroughly recommend a visit here, it is less expensive than similar style restaurants, but far superior.

Our family of 9 enjoyed an absolutely excellent dinner here and despite our large number the service was superb. Everything was very clean and the food was outstanding. The food was I must say beyond our expectations and even our 3 children finished with clean plates. The chocolate pudding was large in portion and the children did not want to... More
