Our party came across this place by accident. Glad we did. Decided to try the most unusual thing on the menu, which handily had veggie and vegan options clearly outlined, a very nice touch. This was called "four seasons", which looked to me to be a random assortment of odd ingredients (mint, peanut butter, pineapple, avocado, chickpeas!) in filo pastry.... More

Went for dinner. Extremely fresh fish grilled perfectly. nice ambience, friendly staff. Short drive outside of Albufeira. Was too cold to sit outside but they also have a nice patio. Would definitely return.

We've eaten many times in the Algarve over the last 12 years and this is probably the best yet. Beautiful covers - olive oil pate delicious, and home made bread and butter excellent. Prawn starters superb. Monkfish and prawns and ribeye steak main courses very tasty. One of our party was vegetarian and highly recommends the vegetarian options. We arranged... More

Just came back from this place the food was fantastic and both our teenage kids commented on the quality of the food. Staff were helpful and polite the decor of the restaurant was surprisingly modern and well fitted out. This has been our best meal out so far. We might try and squeeze another visit in before we leave !

This place is well worth seeking out. It is outside Albufeira so a car or taxi are required (only 5 Euro from the Marina in Albufeira). I have been to many restaurants in the area and this one beats the others hands down. Food is superb, the service even better, and to top it off the bill is not a... More

Just got back from our holiday and I wanted to post about this restaurant, the food is exceptional, we ate there twice on our break. Both occasions the service was attentive, food high quality, each meal that arrived at our table was very well presented. The restaurant has a nautical theme, but very tastefully done. I would definitely rebook for... More

Another superb experience at O Marinheiro. As always the food was exceptional and the service second to none. I would heartily recommend this restaurant to all, and having visited very many times I have never had a bad meal here. The staff and owners are exceptionally friendly and professional. I cannot recommend highly enough.

We had dinner at the O Marinheiro 4 times between March 4 and March 15, 2017. The restaurant decor is lovely and inviting. Everything we ordered was done to perfection. Excellent soups, salads, prawns, monk fish, steak and wonderful desserts; also great choice of wines. The service was excellent. The O Marinheiro is a 10.

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.
