Eating at the Valdemar was a delightful experience. The chicken was delicious, the salad was as good as you will get, the atmosphere was so Portuguese and the staff were so friendly and helpful. It was also incredible value for money.
This place is a 'must' if you are in the Silves area.

This is probably one of my favourite restaurants ever! We have been back many times of the years and it always lives up to our memories. On our trips to the Algarve, we always eat here several times per trip and we have always met the most wonderful people who are also eating there. The piri piri chicken is the best I have ever had! This time, there were 5 of us and with wine, pop for the two kids, several helpings of salad (go for the tomato salad over the mixed salad) and fries (you can even have more chicken if you want), it was about 35eu! There is no menu and the first time we ate there, we had no idea what the prices were! You can't bet the value or the taste! Be sure to get there as close to noon as possible or you will be waiting in line for a table.

In an effort to correct the dubious review from PorscheGirl997 of Valdemar, a further 5 star is necessary. 3..?! This is a pizza chain score, a well-managed corporate score not a Valdemar score. Go back (if you ever went), release pent-up self-importance and see for perhaps the first time what is in front of you. Just not good enough. If required, I will review PorscheGirl997.

Have searched far and wide in Portugal for the best Piri-Piri, and although this isn't it, it came quite close. A traditional restaurant, eating with the locals after the market has closed. Good service and the owner was lovely. Piri-Piri is all down to personal preference, but this place is worth a lazy lunch visit.

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.
