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.

Definately one of the best restaurants in Albufeira on amazingly beautiful beach!

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... read 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. Mrs & kids loved the chicken... More

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

This was one of the first restaurants we visisted in Albufeira. We sat on the veranda with an amazing view of the sea and the sunset! We ordered sea bass. I had never tried this before, so I was skeptical. It was lovely, the very friendly waiter brought it over pre-cooked so we could see the fish, he looked very... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant and it was a great find. Formerly a traditional fisherman’s tavern, it's hidden down a quieter street in the town. The staff are extremely accommodating and explain the menu thoroughly. The food is simple, fresh and extremely tasty. There was not one thing we ordered that was not good. Lots of traditional Portuguese dishes and... More

We have been to O Pescador before many years ago and were not disappointed on this visit. It is mainly a fish restaurant but does do a steak and pasta which my grandchildren chose. We had monkfish cataplana which was plentiful and tasty. Service was good and the food very tasty Good views from the small outside seating area -... More
