I have eaten here a few times now, and it is always delicious! The staff are great, Miguel makes you feel really welcome. The Portuguese steak in my favourite dish, I have it every time I visit. The views from the outside area are out of this world. We visited Burgau a lot to plan our wedding and we visited... More

The view...the rest was...(let's keep it clean). Sorry guys not the best welcome in the world. Need to polish up on your people skills. Turned up at 5ish jut for a coffee and soft drinks and got greeted with a humbug face and an convince attitude. Our survey said... Nil point !

Having been visiting this restaurant when visiting Burgau for many years. Always find Miguel very friendly helpful and entertaining. Steaks are best around. Views are stunning and it's well worth the walk up the steep hill. This year my granddaughter was rather tired so Migel lent her a teddy to cuddle till it was time to leave, he even offered... More

We can't visit Burgau without dining at O Navigador, Miguel the owner never fails to make us feel welcome and the food is always well presented and freshly cooked. Well recommended despite the uphill walk although the views across the bay are stunning!

Awfull staff - very unwelcoming - very average food which would have been enhanced by better welcome and offer of liquid refreshment.

We had Piri Piri chicken and various breads, olives etc - all of which were lovely. Chicken was fresh and the spice was just right - not too over powering. Will head there for lunch or an early evening meal one day to see the view as it was too dark when we went.

So, after reading positive reviews of this place and scoping the pool we decided to give it a try. We went in for lunch and to ask about using the pool as guests. The owner/staff I spoke to seemed to already shouting/arguing with someone else when I arrived. I asked if we could use the pool if we had lunch/used... More

Couldn't make my mind up about O Navegador. Not a cosy Burgau fishing village restaurant. No real sign of a welcome. After walking in the six of us stood and waited about a while before being acknowledged and then shown to our table. Even when staff are busy, it doesn't take much for a glance or a hand gesture to... More

GreAt food. Superb setting. Well worth a trip up the hill. Fantastic views over the bay with the bonus of a swimming pool free to use for guests
