restaurant is located adjacent to the Market in Silves. menus choice was fish of the day or chicken piri piri cooked on the barbecue. Both were very good with some nice touches in presentation. Salad served whilst waiting for meal to be cooked. Complimentary plate of roasted almonds and figs after the meal (no sweets served). Bill was 20 euros for 2 Inc caraf of wine and two coffees. Simple formula done well.

We visited here a year ago and got one of the barbecued Piri Piri chickens to take away... after our boat ride back to Portimao we bought bread to eat with the chicken and have been dreaming about it since! Quite simply, this is the best chicken you will ever eat! A year later, we have had another trip up the Arade to Silves, purely for this chicken - again, we bought it to take away...but 2 this time! I've just eaten some of it and it is so tasty I don't want to stop! Tasty and with a kick and cooked for you on an open barbecue. Take a trip to Silves and buy this chicken - you won't regret it... now pass me another piece!

We've chosen this resto simply because the excellent review done only 4 days ago. The chicken ist just fabulous! After the meal we were surprised by a complementary plate of slices of orange, almonds, figs and fig cake. Unexpected and very good! The service can be somewhat slow (only 1 person) however extremely friendly and serviable.

Chicken, chips and salad at the Valdemar has been a fantastic experience during two trips to the Algarve and, for me, represents everything eating out should be.

No pretentious rubbish, a genuinely warm welcome from at least two generations of the family that run the place, a good table outside, a cold Sagres to start and settle in for a couple of hours to watch the people drift by.

Piri-piri smoke whisps from the huge barbecue out front, combining with the occasional scent of citrus that comes on the breeze from the plantations up the valley.

Always busy but always room. Fresh food, sturdy wine and prices that make it even more appealing.

When I am old and grey, I hope I can still make it here.

Just perfect.
