Occasional live music on selected nights provides a harmonious backdrop to overall dining experience. Dishes include meats, fish, seafood and vegetarian options.

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.

After two terrible dining experiences since we arrived 3 days ago in Albufeira I decided to look up Trip Advisor to find somewhere decent for a change. Castelo de Mar did not let us down. This is more than a restaurant, it is an experience. We spent four hours there, not because the service was slow, but because the atmosphere... More

We visited this restaurant during our 4 day stay in Albufeira and absolutely loved it! We got to taste multiple dishes on their menu and everything was fresh and absolutely delicious! I would especially recommend their steak- most tender and delicious steak in Albufeira. This is not your typical crowded Albufeira restaurant on the strip. This restaurant is situated away... More

Recently visited this restaurant several times during our summer holiday's it can only be described as fantastic, the food was excelant, the service was attentive without being pushy and the staff were friendly and helpful. The only other thing I can say is make sure you book it's very very busy.

I booked this restaurant prior to leaving the UK after seeing it on here. I emailed them and recieved confirmation of the booking within 12 hours. If you would like a good table on the terrace with the view you will need to book as the terrace seemed to be all full with reserved tables with the inside tables perhaps... More
