We were squeezed in at the last minute as they were fully booked so we were in and out in an hour. That was fine as we had to catch the last bus to Luz. Friendly service, good if not exceptional food but reasonably pricey.

A little disappointing this year ... Been a number of times over the last few years and the energy and joy seemed to have gone The food was variable ... Chicken Piri Piri exceptional, monkfish kebab good and Portuguese beef some way off Hopefully just a little blip ... If you have a week of eating in Burgau I would... More

We ate at Esquina on our last night in Burgau and it was enjoyable. The service was excellent and, although the food was not the best we had during our time in the western Algarve, it was still good and fresh.

Ate here last night and was thoroughly impressed. Staff were attentive without being overbearing. Food itself was very, very good - the monkfish cataplana is absolutely stunning. Desserts were good and reasonably priced. Overall an enjoyable experience that I would recommend and if visiting this part of Portugal would eat at again.

Great meal and friendly staff, steaks were delicious and the house red was good. Starters and desserts weren't quite as good but would revisit.

This is our third or fourth visit here. We keep coming back. Service is outstanding and food is amazing. Steak was the best I've had in Burgau cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend the desserts especially the hot chocolate pudding. It is heaven and melts in the mouth (and I'm not a chocolate lover!). Only thing that Esquina is... More

We ate here last night (Monday) after booking a table on Saturday when it opened. Very busy as all but one tables were reserved and that one went straight away. We had crab starter nice but bit pricey. Shared a Cataplana, bottle of house wine small beer and water. Came to €75 which included a tip. Really enjoyed the evening... More

Tash and Jorge yet again hosted and supplied an incredible meal and evening. It could only be described as a beautiful experience. Amongst the very best of retaurants in the Burgau, Esquina could never be second best to any! I can't wait to be there again.

Fantastic meal, brilliant; staff, food and atmosphere. In 2014 we made a reservation for 10 of us for an evening meal (following 4 of us having had a great dining experience there in 2012) - it was again fabulous. This year we (10 of us!) turned up on spec (as soon as the restaurant opened for dinner), the lovely friendly... More
