We went for the 2 for 1 option which was around 16 euros (see photos), which worked out at being the... More

Special menu for 15€ for 2 is exceptional as to taste and quality. Baby back ribs were to die for with salad, home fries, tomatoes.... More

We went 3 times in the fortnight we were there. 2 absolutely HUGE dishes for 14.95 euro including full rack ribs, Fish and chips, Steak pie. Recommend booking a table as its not that big a place and gets busy with regulars

We have been visiting the Cockerel for 9 years now and always receive a friendly welcome. The staff are very attentive and food excellent as always. Nothing more to add as the reviews speak for them selves. See you all the next time we visit. Steve & Wendy.

This was the best meal we had in albufeira. The ribs were the best we've ever had and the food and staff were great. Finally a proper restaurant. Just make sure you book a table and are hungry as portions are huge.
