Having read the reviews I knew not to ask for a menu and we both opted for the chicken and were not disappointed. The typical Portuguese salad of lettuce, tomato and... More

This very casual eatery is famous in Silves and nearby Algarve towns for Piri Piri Chicken prepared on an outdoor charcoal grill. The flattened chicken is moist, tender, and flavourful. The prices are amazing! Chicken with fries, bread and olives, beverage of your choice (including beer or wine) and dessert for only 10 Euros. Outstanding value, very friendly service, and... More
