They also have farmed fish but it was made very clear to me what was fresh or farmed when choosing a fish, we chose a lovely big fresh silver Bream that was plenty for the four of us, it is in a great position on the Beach.. A must to visit if you're nearby...

Just had the Dorado at this restaurant. Really delicious and fresh. It's a little pricey, but then again they serve good quality. The service is also very good. Friendly waiters who acknowledge you and take an interest in who you are. They don't just serve you anything either, they recommend a suitable fish for the number of people at the... More

Spectacular view and location over the beach. But they over-charge ridiculous prices for fish which is evidently farmed and they sell falsely as 'wild fish' for 4x the correct price! what a shame

We were not treated well in this restaurant. The attitude of the waiter was very rude upon our arrival. He directed us to a table that was in the sun and the sun was very hot that day, I asked him to move to another table and he said nothing, Just made a rude gesture with his shoulders, after that...

Great restaurant in the day for a light lunch - but really comes into its own of an evening - a stroll down the beach and it's as though you are entering a family kitchen - you can choose your fish but be sure to have it weighed so you know the price . The fish is presented to your... More

We had a lovely evening meal here on holiday. You can choose the fish you want to be cooked, and there is a fine selection of fresh fish. We had the Red Snapper, which was grilled and filleted for us to take out the bones. The vegetables that come with the fish also tasted good, simple but delicious. Our children... More

My husband and I went here for lunch because it was beside our hotel. We didn't know how things were priced on the menu some was by kilograms and some now so we just ordered the sea bass at random. Our server was very friendly. He advised that the sea bass would be for two people since it's a large... More

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.
