Never dissapointed

Just returned from a 4 night stay in Albufeira and visited The Cockerel for 3 of these nights. Once again the food was excellent and the service fantastic.

Lovely food. Ring and book or call in and book as you will not get a table otherwise. Quite a small place but you won't be disappointed.

The food was great and big portions served. Reservations are advised. The 2 for 1 during the early season was a real deal. Friendly staff. Definitely a must go to place when in the area.

Great food & drink, value for money. When you are on holiday and fancy a bit of good home cooking and having a break from the local cuisine go to this little find! Pie is great - and the port is amazing

Well what can I say but simply the best. Food and superb service with a moderate price tag to boot it simply can't be beat if looking for good quality food in a nice relaxing atmosphere. Booked for a table of 5 for 7.30pm and we were quickly seated in a large table by our very pleasant waiter and drinks... More

Most amazing restaurant in the area. Yes not all food authentic to Portugal but the quality of food and service is the best you will get in the area. Remember to book to avoid disappointment. We had a group of 13 and every meal was spot on. Thankyou very much

Fantastic food, VERY big portions. If you are put off by large portions, then this place is not for you! There are a couple of gluttons in our company, who struggle to finish their meals. Booking is advised, as it is very busy most nights. (closed Monday). 2 for 1 offer during the early season, makes it even better value.... More
