This was the first time I've visited Burgau and the restaurant was recommended to us. It didn't disappoint, the service was amazing, the food was delicious and nothing was too much trouble. Angelica and the staff were fantastic. Highly recommended and compliments to the chef!

We have been coming to this restaurant for years. It is family run and has a wonderfully warm atmosphere. Angelica has taken it to new heights and it will remain a firm favorite.

As I understand it they do close over winter from November to March I think. I have only ever visited the restaurant in May, June and July.
