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.

Great Restaurant!

My family and I visited this restaurant that overlooks the Marina and we weren't disappointed, the food and service was top class, the owner was a really nice guy, our only regret was that we didn't have time to go again!

My wife and I rented an apartment in the Marina and walked by for several days before trying the Castelo. We were both very pleased with the excellent food, atmosphere, service and value. We ate in a number of places during our holiday in June, and this was the best by a country mile. So much so that it became... More

Read all the hype, bombarded by the radio advert, gave it a go. Little England abroad of course, so hopefully the food would make things better. My wife couldn't fault things but my scallops were tasteless and the salad/chutney with it couldn't really add anything. Still, nice surroundings and service, but we won't return as it is well below the... More

We were a party of four who had two starters four main meals and deserts, two bottles of wine and four or five rounds of drinks and the bill was a very reasonable 157e. Unfortunatly we did not get back... More

Only a 15 minute walk from the main square, and it is worth the walk. The prices are very reasonable especially when you see the quality of the food and how generous the portions are. It is a relaxed atmosphere, we waited outside in the seating area whilst we ordered with a glass of sangria which was lovely. The service... More

We went with our two Year old and had a lovely time. The service was friendly and most helpful. The food was excellent and the venue is well worth the walk. I can't say how lovely the food and evening was. Great place but pre book a high chair if taking kids as they only have two

Stumbled across this wonderful restaurant whilst walking back to our apartment in the marina and we were not disappointed. The food was exceptional! The guys who work there are so friendly and they deserve the great reviews this little restaurant has received.

We ate in Castelo do Mar twice during our trip to Portugal, the food was gorgeous both times, the service was excellent on both occasions. This is a really lovely restaurant and the staff couldn't have done more to help as we had a young child, nothing was a problem to them. Its gorgeous inside and outside there is a... More
