We had an enjoyable family dinner here. Friendly relaxed atmosphere, small but comfortable. The food was very good the wines were excellent, service was efficient if a little slow but not inattentive.

We were a family party of 8 with fussy teenagers and adults and everyone had a delicious meal. The service was friendly and relaxed. We will definitely go back on our next visit to Burgau.

Fantastic experience. Perfect host - had us in stitches - he was very funny. Nice for the children to have other things to try. Our 5 and 8 year old split the calamari for a starter and then had a kids spag bol between them...More
