This just has to be the best restaurant in Burgau where there are many good restaurants. Just make the trip to the top of the hill (opposite the bus shelter!) You won’t be sorry.
The food is consistently very good and the atmosphere lovely. The Caravella has a lovely old fashioned feel to it (Tony loves to show off and flambé food at your table – flambé sole with almonds and crepe suzette being just two I’ve tried and loved). We last visited on the 24th May 2013 – I had the best steak I’ve had in years. My partner had the mixed kebab which is enormous and comes to your table hanging from a gibbet! The owner, Tony, is a lovely man who cannot do enough for you. This is without a doubt the best restaurant I have been to on the whole of the Algarve.

This is our favourite place to eat in all the Algarve. The service is excellent and we've always been well satisfied. Antonio, the owner. is very welcoming. It makes no difference if you have a large expensive meal or a light snack. Once we arrived quite late, after a delayed plane journey, but a meal was provided and nothing was too much trouble. We've been in a power cut, yet somehow he rustled up a very satisfactory meal without electricity! The gall of port with the bill is a very nice touch. Over many years it has never failed to delight.

This is our favourite place to eat in Burgau. The service is outstanding, and the food is sublime. The flambé sole and the fillets of turbot are fabulous, as are the flambé crepes for dessert. Have never had a bad meal here and the place has a wonderful typical Portuguese ambience to it. You will always receive a warm welcome from Antonio, the owner. He is a lovely man, for whom nothing is too much trouble. This place is definitely worth going to. Over the years it has been consistently excellent.

A trip to Burgau is never complete without eating here. The service is second to none in the village and the menu has variety with many Portuguese dishes and some classics. Covers are a meal on themselves and a complimentary port arrives with the bill. Thanks again to Antonio and his wife for a great experience!

The restaurant was surprisingly quiet when we visited towards the end of September - surprisingly because it's so good. On the first occasion I had avocado and fish to start and then a fisherman's stew and on the second sardine fillets followed by swordfish. Everything was excellent on both occasions but the best part was the crepes. Antonio, the owner, prepares them at the table and he's perfectly happy to do one portion to share between two people.

The food is outstanding and the service is excellent and friendly.

Recommended.
