Description: 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.

whilst in portugal we had the opportunity to dine at the michelin starred restaurant villa joya and it was very expensive and disappointing with pretentious staff and painfully slow service.

By complete contrast the O Pescador was excellent in every respect. what more can be said, try it yourself. excellent service, very well cooked local food with seafood as a speciality from the regional catches. Worth every cent.

Went here with some locals who recommended the grilled prawns, steamed clams and fresh fish which you can choose from a counter. All the food tasted fresh and was great for a warm evening overlooking the beach.

The wait staff is very rude and barely paid attention to us. The menu is overpriced and not worth the money we paid. Would not go back.

Good fish, friendly staff, have known this restaurant since 1987, family run business. Over the years it has just improved, but has lost the Parrot.

we had our lunch here everyday, as the hotel Grande Real's beach restaurant was closed & they only had the snack bar open. The setting is fantastic. rustic beach bar, excellent food, service, wine. freshest fish every day & they tailored our side dishes as we wished. Theres a lot of food for lunch, so go hungry! staff lovely & very friendly & excellent english. LOVED it & wish i was there now!
