Tucked away next to the pool within the sprawling Sheraton Algarve resort in Albufeira, Portugal, O Pescador is a bright and cheerful restaurant which serves breakfast and light meals during the day, and a superb seafood menu in the evenings. The Sheraton is perched on a clifftop with panoramic ocean views, and O Pescador is decorated with whitewashed walls, marine blue tablecloths and tiled floors giving the eatery has an unabashedly Mediterranean atmosphere. Ideal for tables for two and relaxed family nights out, the restaurant's menu includes favourites such as the Seafood Platter for two, the Steamed Atlantic Crab and the traditional Portuguese Cataplana served three ways.

We travel all over Portugal and O Pescador has one of the best oceanfront presentations of Portugese cusine, especially the fish which is caught every day. Wonderful bilingual and personable staff.

We were staying at the hotel nearby in Eulalia and were looking for a traditional Portuguese restaurant that did fresh fish and this fitted the bill. The service was fast and friendly and the food excellent,... More
