Visited in early September. Have not been here for a few years and it has been updated without lacking the family feeling. Seafood was excellent. Choose your fish etc from the large display cabinet. Views from the balcony over the marina are great. Hence the reason the prices are slightly higher than average. Service was very good. Will definitely visit... More

Had a meal here during a recent holiday in Vilamoura. Overall feeling by both of us that it was distinctly average with a high end price tag. We were going to order 2 giant prawns from the cold counter, however, we soon changed our minds when they were weighed it worked out at £24 / prawn !! We had a... More

Up above the marina, and superior to the clutch of "British" pubs and restaurants serving tourist fare is this restaurant. Worth a climb up the steps to find it. Welcoming staff, very clean. A cut above the rest. The wine menu was an iPad, and there was no food menu for the table - you had to go to the... More

Knowing that we at at one of the most crowded and renown spot in Algarve, this restaurant has great fish and seafood (you see it and choose it as your enter the restaurant), but it is sooooooooo expensive that definitely there are much better options nearby with the same/better quality, and definitely better value for money ratio.

A return visit to O Ceistero after two visits last year, this time with friends in tow. Another fantastic meal! We went all out for king prawns, super king prawns, turbot, clams. Everything was superbly cooked, plenty of garlic. Throw in a bottle of champers and Portuguese wine, it was a meal to remember. The terrace has been widened and... More

This is the place to be for fresh and well prepared seafood at the Marina in Vilamoura. You can choose your own fish at the entrance. Please not the the price is per kilo. The view on the Marina is beautiful. Reservation is recommended.

Book, some time in advance, a table on the veranda, and you will not regret it! And if you arrive early (say, 8pm) the choice of fresh fish (right as you enter the restaurant) is mouthwatering. The service is as excellent as the food and the wine. One not to miss thus! (but book in advance though!)..

This restaurant is one of our favourites on the marina and serves great Portugese food cooked and prepared to perfection. We've visited twice now and both times service, food and setting was excellent. If you are a fish lover the restaurant is an absolute must. We liked the great views of the marina from the balcony, the interior of the... More
