Located 50m above sea level, overlooking a small bay. Great little restaurant. Book ahead if possible. Open air but decent shielding from wind. Meal for adults and kids was very good. Pork steak, pork chops, fillet steak, stone bass, tuna steak....all enjoyed very much.

Have been returning to Burgau now for many years and Barraca (the HUT) has always been a firm favourite. Expect traditional Portuguese food, simple but delicious. Lots of fresh fish on offer. Amazing views of the sea and wonderful staff. A must if visiting Burgau!
