Been going to this restaurant for many years and have never been disappointed with (probably) the best piri piri chicken in the Algarve, Staff are always polite (although not much English spoken) and the food freshly cooked. If you are ever in (or close to) Silves make time and enjoy an exceptional lunch.

A visit to Silves must include this outside restaurant with incredible value Piri Piri chicken on the BBQ. This succulent dish with either soft or hard Piri Piri is simply the best! For around 20 euros for two, this include sardine pate starter with breads,olives and carrots, Piri Piri chicken with salad and potatoes or chips, and fruits to Finnish.... More

Food from the grill....well done....nothing more, nothing less. Of course, some chips and a basic salad. We had sardines (my partner loved them) and pork (very tasty). The other clients were tourists and locals alike, it's a bit of a hotspot at the edge of the old town. And it's cheap. So if you like basic stuff this is a... More

If chicken piri piri is your thing then this is the place to go. It is all they do and they do it very well, Service is slick and there is a good atmosphere. You are lucky to get a table as there is always a lively and cosmopolitan crowd dining there. Extremely good value for money.

This was a perfect place for lunch, friends recommended it and we went with them and hopefully we will return. We had olives, cheese, salad, bread, the best chicken, lovely chips, desert, wine and water all for 37 euros for four people. Value for money ! Very busy so get there early.

Very basic localities, but mouth watering food. As for taste to cash ratio, you need to go to the really cheap parts of Asia to match it. Staff were very friendly, and service was extremely fast. A must if you are in the Silves region and like piri-piri chicken.

We arrived at this restaurant at 12.30 and it was almost full... lucky to get a table in the November sunshine. Our order was taken quickly and arrived soon after.... They seem to do 95% Piri Piri Chicken and an occasional order of fish. There is no menu so ordering the chicken is the easiest option for a first visit.... More

This restaurant was recommended to us and was well worth the long drive. We sat down not knowing quite what to expect as there was no menu. The atmosphere was good and we could not believe how busy it was. They brought out olives, bread and carrots in oil and garlic for us to have with our wine whilst waiting... More

You go there. You get a table. You sit down. They ask "chicken"? I believe the only valid answer is "yes", because the piri piri chicken is why you're there in the first place. Order a salad. Order more chicken. Extra spicy if you dare. Enjoy. These people clearly know what they're about. Not fancy. But fantastic food and atmosphere.... More

This really is one of the most uncomplicated, fun and best places to get chicken piri piri. A sign straightforwardly says that they serve the best chicken in the Algarve and you have to allow them that. There's no menu, you sit outside and there is a huge grill across the pavement from which they serve barbecued chicken, crisp, golden... More
