Tucked away next to the pool within the sprawling Sheraton Algarve resort in Albufeira, Portugal, O Pescador is a bright and cheerful restaurant which serves breakfast and light meals during the day, and a superb seafood menu in the evenings. The Sheraton is perched on a clifftop with panoramic ocean views, and O Pescador is decorated with whitewashed walls, marine blue tablecloths and tiled floors giving the eatery has an unabashedly Mediterranean atmosphere. Ideal for tables for two and relaxed family nights out, the restaurant's menu includes favourites such as the Seafood Platter for two, the Steamed Atlantic Crab and the traditional Portuguese Cataplana served three ways.

Great place just for a drink and to chill & relax...fantastic sea view, love it!!!

Only stopped here for a few drinks to sit on the balcony outside. Lovely position at the beach and great place to chill and relax, where you'll be spoiled by the sea view and breeze....The restaurant is inside.

I love this restaurant. It's not cheap but if you can grab a table on the terrace overlooking the beach, it is a truly wonderful lunch experience. We have been going for 13 years and the service is always great and the fresh fish is wonderful. The chef butterflies the fish and cooks it on a chargrill or BBQ -... More

If you love fish .... this is the place for you! Small menu, fresh fish delivered every day. You can see and pick what you want to eat. And the view is just stunning. Fernanda was our outstanding waitress and we loved going there. Highly recommended.

We came here for an evening meal yesterday and it was so good we returned for lunch today! The fish is caught the same day and tastes amazing cooked on the charcoal grill. Bread and vegetable side orders were tasty and fresh, the service was great- would definitely recommend. You can't beat that view.

We were staying at the hotel next door to the O Pescador and dined here 3 times while on our holiday. The fish counter has some beautiful fresh fish, cooked on the char grill and served with potatoes and salad/Veg. Absolutely delicious. The staff are friendly and accommodated our small kids very well. A good selection of wines are on... More

Me and my husband had a great experience at O Pescador restaurant. Great service, hospitality and food quality for reasonable price, as well as experienced staff. I would especially point out the waiter Eugusto (if I am not mistaken with the name) for his professional and friendly attitude. The restaurant is situated on a splendid Santa Eulalia beach, which makes... More

Very efficient, well organised team of waiters, excellent atmosphere I tried several different fish over 2 weeks, and also the stunning monkfish rice, which was a real surprise - clearly like the English, the Portguese have learned to use spices and herbs in complex ways not found much in Europe We kept coming back.

We have been coming to O Pescador as a family for over 30 years. Of course it has changed a lot over the years. When we came first time it was no more than a shack off the beach with a few umbrellas in the sand in front. It has been in the same family since Noah was a boy.... More

Being so close to the beach, I was very skeptical about the quality; you have to be lucky to have good quality and prime location. Also, I have to say that in terms of price, our experience is solely on sardines... we had them twice, they were so good! The restaurant sits on the beach, and besides the grilled fish... More
