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.

Castelo de Mar was recommended to us by a local and we weren't disappointed. We ended up eating here twice as our first meal was so good. All food was freshly cooked and the portions were so big my children ordered burgers (adult ones) and had to take doggy bags home as they couldn't finish them, which is a first.... More

Having looked on tripadvisor prior to our holiday, I came across the reviews for this restaurant that all looked pretty good. We booked a table via email before and kept in touch with regards to our reservation. We arrived for a drink on the terrace in the sunshine and enjoyed a lovely cocktail. Unfortunately, just as we were about to... More

We went as a large group and really enjoyed our meal there. the waiters were extremely helpful and friendly and had a wide knowledge of the food on their menu. The food was exceptional, nobody in our party of seven had any complaints at all. We... More

During our week long holiday in Albufeira, my girlfriend and I ate at Castelo do Mar restaurant 3 times. The location, the food and the people were the best we experienced keeping us coming back for more! I cannot recommend Castelo do Mar highly enough! The sea and marina views are stunning. The menu is varied, catering for all tastes... More

My wife and I spotted the restaurant during an earlier trip in January, and were pleased to see it open on our return a week ago. We received a very friendly welcome from Johann and found the atmosphere and ambience very much what we were looking for. We consider this restaurant to deserve five stars in every category as it...

We read about this place before we went on holiday to albuferia and walked there on a Sunday to find it closed, but I should really have checked the opening times prior to going there, it is only open for a six day week in April. We returned two days later as it was only a 15min walk from our... More

We were staying by the marina and would pass this restaurant everyday when we walked to the beach or Old Town. It looks beautiful from the outside and it has wonderful views over the marina and the sea as it is on top of the hill. We always talked about going there one night and I'm so thankful we decided...
