Home cooking.

To put it simply, friendly with wholesome home cooked meals. Nothing is too much trouble to the excellent owner, son and mother team who all do trojan work.

Our first time in Portugal we were staying at a villa in Quinta dos Calicos about 2K out of old town Albufeira. Having tried a couple of promising looking restaurants in the old town and being very disappointed with both we found A Cocheira 5 minutes walk away from our villa and what a little gem of a place it...

A Cocheira has been offering great food and wine for over 25 years! We have been there twice now on our recent trip to Albufeira, If you are staying on Club Albufeira then it is a quick walk and no need to drive! The father and son partnership ensures that you will be made to feel special from the moment... More

Spent a few days in albufeira and found this place on our last night. We rented an apartment in Alto dos Calicos which is where it is located, and it was by far our best meal. The father greeted and seated us, while his wife fixed our meal. Wish I would have found this place earlier on our stay, would've... More

Interesting decor as a converted stable. Waiter service very good and a good selection of well prepared food and wines. Parking OK outside. Only 110 metres off the Albufeira-Ferreiras N395 road - look for Beco da Cocheira/Caminho dos Brejos. it's close-by.

I have eaten here several times. All the food is basic traditional Portuguese food cooked to the old recipes and methods. The menu is quite extensive and the wine selections has to be seen to be believed. Both the owner and his son have spent a lot of time in the UK so there is plenty of chance for a... More

I could not fault this lovely family run restaurant. The food was beautiful, the atmosphere was calm, relaxed and friendly and it was very reasonably priced. It is slightly out of the way but I could not recommend it any higher. I would travel to receive the welcoming atmosphere and delicious food on offer in this little gem!

Very nice people who at the time of the reservation asked us if we had any special requests - dishes not on the menu. We did, had arroz do marisco and it was wonderful. Excellent advise for accommodating wines. The grilled prawns as a starter are a true treat. Try this place out, you will not be disappointed.
