Perhaps one of the most beautiful restaurants in Albufeira, Castelo do Mar boasts unique sea and Marina views, outside terraces and a relaxed ambience in an elegant setting. Occasional live music on selected nights provides a harmonious backdrop to overall dining experience. Dishes include meats, fish, seafood and vegetarian options. A fully stocked bar provides either an additional element to your meal or a well deserved sunset cocktail, a glass of Champagne or whatever your choice of liquid refreshment. An ideal venue for all occasions. If you have taken the time to write a review and we have not responded to it please accept our apologies.

Sunday lunch totally lived up to the TA reviews. Lovely setting, friendly service, quality ingredients perfectly prepared, generous portions and very reasonable prices – main course E8,95, 2 courses E11,95 and 3 courses for E14,95. On our first visit I had tomatoe soup with chorizo sausage and white beans, bacon wrapped chicken breast with stuffing, carrots, broccoli, roast potatoes and... More

We have eaten here many times and have been delighted with each visit. Today has been no exception. The excellent standards are being maintained if anything, the tweaks to the menu only serve to improve an already great experience. I started with a spicy choritzo and white bean soup and my wife had chicken liver pate. Both starters were delicious.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in this wonderful friendly restaurant and made several visits.The food was outstanding and the atmosphere was truly welcoming. The food was mouthwatering, fresh and beautifully prepared and presented. The views of the marina and sunsets breathtaking.If you want wonderful food in a relaxed, comfortable and contemporary environment this is the place for you.

Can't sing their praises highly enough. We went here for our anniversary and had a 3 course meal with a bottle of wine and it included palate cleansers. Came to 71 euros which we thought was very reasonable considering how fresh everything was and the table service was second to none. Very friendly, down to earth staff despite it feeling... More

Sometimes it's worth treating yourself, pushing the boat out and visiting a lovely restaurant. If you fancy doing this then this is the place to do it. Try to get there early evening and watch the sun going down whilst chilling with friends and family on the balcony and sat on the lounging seats. Food is lovely too. Wish we... More
