My partner and I enjoyed a fantastic meal at this great restaurant. We met a couple from Manchester who recommended it and they were not wrong. After a warm welcome, we chose the Goats cheese and beetroot salad and the huge prawns to start, followed by the sea bass and black pig. We were not "doing " pudding until we... More

Very impressed with this restaurant - have been before and even better than first time. Beautiful setting - we had a drink in the outdoor seating area while checking out the menu and enjoying the fabulous view. Food was delicious and beautifully presented, as high a quality as any top restaurant back home. Service was a little slow at times... More

Pretty disappointed to have to wait 45 mins for a table and then find restaurant was half empty, so not a good start. Starters were ok, but mains were excellent. Desserts were so so.

Back to alburufra, and mainly just for this restaurant. Love the atmosphere, and the views from the terrace are superb. Again the food never disappoints and combined with excellent service 10/10 does not do it justice.

Fantastic service, lovely staff, great music, superb value and an unbelievable view. But most of all the food was so tasty and delicious - so much so that you could lick your plate clean! A restaurant which should definitely be your number one place to eat in Albufeira! Unreal

We had a great night at Castelo do Mar tonight with two friends. Food was amazing particularly the sea bass and the waitress was very friendly with prompt service. The on site entertainment was fabulous and not intrusive. Highly recommend a visit.

The meal was fantastic the atmosphere over the marina was exquisite. Some of our group had dietary requirements but nothing was too much trouble. YOU MUST GO HERE. I will... More
