We are regular visitors to O Marinheiro and awaited the make-over with interest. The transformation is remarkable - it's now a very stylish destination. Menu, wine list, staff and ambience make a very worth while and memorable experience.

It was not too busy on the Wednesday and the food ambiance and staff were fantastic so much so that we returned on the Friday evening we were lucky to get a table for our party of 5 as we had...

A cut above the other restaurants we have visited in the area. A few minutes walk from the Baia Grande hotel. A lovely meal but pricey and you need to order additional vegetables or side salad as the main course (fish of the day) came with 3 small new potatoes only. For a special night out well worth the extra.... More

Wow! Talk about a makeover! O Marinheiro re-opened last night; what a spectacular change. The food was always good, but now the setting is even better and is sure to attract more people to this popular site near Cuelha Beach just west of Albufeira. Often when restaurants open there are some "first night jitters" - not here - all the... More

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
