Wonderful food, service and atmosphere

We returned several times to this great restaurant during our week long stay in the local area. Pleasantly surprised at how well they dealt with the fussy eaters in our party. Food excellent, good choice and beautifully cooked. Would gladly visit again.

We booked this restaurant as it was around the corner. The cocktails were very well made and tasted great. The menu was small but the food was cooked perfectly. I had the "sailing ships" which was essentially king prawns with rice. Simple but so good! They brought us complimentary starters which was really nice. The desert was lovely too. You... More

It was undoubtably the best restaurant we ate in in that area and it did have competition. We order carpaccio and the goats cheese with figs for starters, Salted cod, monk fish and... More

We have been visiting O Marinheiro two or three times a year for several years now but hadn't been since last October. What a stylish new decor-very impressed! The food is always superb, and Joaquin a good host. 3 of our party had the ribeye steak, a new addition to the slightly changed menu, and it didn't disappoint! Well done... More

Really nice food, went there 3 times on our 4 night stay in the area, only reason it wasnt 4 nights in a row was because the first night we didnt know it exsisted. staff were really good and the steak was really big cooked perfectly. not like alot of the cheap nasty touristy restaurants in the area.
