We could not fault the menu, the service or the food. We were particularly impressed by a staff member with a tray of fresh fish stopping at each table to help diners with their choice.

A Barraca is a great fish bar on the sea front at Burgau. Great range of fish and always deliciously cooked. The service is fast and effective, with a real focus on an authentic experience.
