Description: Decorated in a charmingly rustic style with hints here and there of the Algarve's nautical past, the O MARINHEIRO Restaurant, at Sesmarias in Albufeira, was founded over a decade ago and since then has enjoyed an excellent reputation throughout the region.The menu comprises a delicious selection of national and international dishes; all prepared using only the freshest seasonal ingredients and includes a children's selection for our younger guests. Our friendly multilingual staff invites you to begin your evening with a drink at our well-stocked bar whilst you browse our menu or make your selection from our specialities of the day.Our "garrafeira" is richly supplied with many good Portuguese wines and the waiters will be more than happy to assist you in choosing the most appropriate to accompany your meal.Adjacent to the main dining area of the restaurant there is a delightful shady garden terrace, an air-conditioned winter-garden and a playground for the children.

“GOOD EVENING”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

Pleasant interior, good friendly service, good menu selection.
We tried to get a table the previous evening but they were full, we booked for the next night and again it was busy. That says it all.
Good food and a good evening.
Would we go back again. Yes.

“pleasant admosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

Surpringly pleasant. Good food with good service. The owner simply knew how to treat the new guests having a small visit at the table for food explanation. And we enjoyed the meal so much that we also had another meal during our stay for vacation in the Algarve.
The choice was small but excellent, both Fish and Meat in a variaty of combinations. Just great.
Moreover a excellent Winelist with both local and international wines at reasonable prices

“Best food at affordable price near Gale”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014 via mobile

We loved this restaurant , food very good and very affordable too ( we paid 50 euros for 2 courses each plus drinks). Staff friendly and service overall good (tiny issue of waiting for bill for 20 minutes ) - will return to this restaurant every year now during our holiday stay in Gale, a little gem.

“Great food, well presented but you will have to pay alittle more...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

We got a little lost trying to find this place from our villa. It is in the middle of nowhere but a great find.

The food is fantastic, I had the Turkey and it was nothing like I had ever had before. The service was good but it could have been better. I would say it is a little pricey and you can find similar places with a slightly cheaper price tag.

If you're happy to spend a little more for good quality food, then this place is definite must.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

The staff are very friendly and cant do enough for you. There is a good selection of food on the menu, also very reasonably priced. Visited it 3 times during our stay and had the pepper steak which was a treat. My wife had a salmon dish which again could not be faulted. It is definately well worth a visit as you will not be disappointed.
