Back again and again a fantastic meal and service. The staff are very on the ball, glasses never left empty but don't stand round your table. Food is amazing. Children's menu as well and children very welcome. We will come back to this restaurant again and again. It can be expensive but what you pay you get back in excellent... More

Me and my girlfriend found this place using trip advisor as we stayed at the baia grand, it is a 30 second walk and I advise everyone to make the trip. Service is amazing, our glass was never empty but they are not pushy at all and don't linger near you. Ended up having 3 courses because the food really... More

Ordered a steak around 20 euros - usually leave most restaurants satisfied after steak but not on this occasion. Asked for chips instead of potatoes and portion was small- when asked for a bit more for my son- was charged even though not a full portion ( son is 1 so doesn't eat much) I much preferred Praia grande restaurant...

My husband and I ate here because we wanted fresh, local food and it was near our hotel. It was a great dining experience. They sat us in a quiet corner table, which was nice because this place--like all places in the Algarve--is rather child-friendly, so there were a few tables with children (luckily, they were behaving well). The service... More

Have visited this restaurant many times in the past and was pleased to find the staff were as friendly as ever. The food was also of a high standard, but do feel that the menu could do with a revamp it hasnt really changed in the past 8 years. Although it is well worth a visit regardless.

Not sure they hit the spot this year, the vegetables seemed an odd mix of spinach/tomato/mushrooms. The menu hasn't changed in ages.

Just had another excellent meal where we were warmly welcomed back. If the O Marinheiro is 59 out of 500 plus restaurants in Albufeira either the top 58 are out of this world or their reviewers have extremely low standards. House red is amazing value, staff are great, the food particularly carpaccio of beef and fresh fish are highlights.
