Description: Tucked away next to the pool within the sprawling Sheraton Algarve resort...
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.

Best fresh fish

The fish is very fresh, and plenty of choices), the location is 5 stars (right in Santa eulalia beach), the staff is very friendly. We start with a group of 6 and end up with 10 and staff made sure that we were all together (rearranging tables, etc). Great value for money. Very good portions. Do... read more

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.

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.
