Description: 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. We greatly appreciate that you took the time to do so and offer our sincere thanks.

“Back again and this place never disappoints.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Back to alburufra, and mainly just for this restaurant. Love the atmosphere, and the views from the terrace are superb. Again the food never disappoints and combined with excellent service 10/10 does not do it justice.

“Fantastic Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

Fantastic service, lovely staff, great music, superb value and an unbelievable view. But most of all the food was so tasty and delicious - so much so that you could lick your plate clean! A restaurant which should definitely be your number one place to eat in Albufeira! Unreal

“Fabulous Night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

We had a great night at Castelo do Mar tonight with two friends. Food was amazing particularly the sea bass and the waitress was very friendly with prompt service. The on site entertainment was fabulous and not intrusive. Highly recommend a visit.

“How is this not number 1 in Portugal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

We arrived as a family group of 10 and half way through our holiday needed to finally have a good meal, we asked a local family who recommended this place. The meal was fantastic the atmosphere over the marina was exquisite. Some of our group had dietary requirements but nothing was too much trouble. YOU MUST GO HERE. I will be back next year, try the duck (hope they will still do it.)
