“If you only eat out once it has to here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Just back from Albufeira and our 4th visit to this lovely restaurant. As other reviewers have said you are remembered and welcomed back but also receive a friendly greeting on your 1st visit. The food is consistently excellent and the service great. If you enjoy your wine they never fail to recommend the perfect one for your meal choice. We have always sat outside in the patio area which has a lovely ambiance, you can reserve your favourite table and spend all evening there as they never hurry you. I would like to go there in the winter as the interior also looks inviting but haven't yet had the opportunity. On our last visit we had a dessert of strawberries with cointreau and black pepper, it was to die for! If you only eat out once during your holiday it has to be here, you won't regret it. Easy walk from the old town, this time we walked from Montechero it took about half an hour. Can't wait to go back.

“Fantastic - again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

We visit Albufeira 2 or 3 times a year and we always visit this restaurant. We are greeted like old friends and then treated to great food. The sangria, specially concocted is the best I have tasted.
The restaurant is on the outskirts of the town and as such is also requested by the locals- always a good sign.
I would have no hesitation in recommending A Cocheira.

“The best restaurant in the Calicos area of Albufeira”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

This restaurant is a little bit isolated between the Hospital Roundabout and the Clube Albufeira but it is certainly worth at least one visit. It is easily assessible from the main road but it is tucked well away from the traffic.Certainly if you are staying in the Calicos area of Albufeira then a visit to this restaurant should be a must. It offers inside and outside dining. It is open for lunch and dinner.It has an excellent general ambience. It offers a wide ranging menu and the meals we had were all good value and good quality. It has a wide range of good value wines. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable understanding and helpful.

“slightly off beaten track, atmospheric and traditional”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2012

Reccommended by trip advisor we were pleasantly surprised by the kerb appeal of this little restaurant. My husband, a critical Portuguese restaurant manager on a cruise ship suddenly found himself perusing the array of wines stacked in old mangers behind each table, the name of restaurant translating as 'coach man' (or woman) led us to believe this was old stable (although we didn't ask). The service was proffessional, the wine delicious, and food very nice. But greatly improved by the ambience of the place. The fact that it was wheelchair friendly (ramps to loos) was fantastic as mother in wheelchair, although this has never been mentioned. We had a lovely evening in this restaurant and priced well for the rating... Well done!
