OMG - Totally loved this!!!! Shalom was recommended by our Thomson rep as a 'meat eaters' must visit and she was right. We stayed in Albufeira for 2 weeks and ate out pretty much every night. This was the only restaurant we'd have gone back to, we only didn't as we wanted to try others and not feel we'd 'missed... More

This has to be one of, if not the best restaurant in Albuferia. The fact it was always packed says a lot, The staff are very welcoming and friendly and theirs lots to choose from off the menu plus the prices are not so hard on your pocket.....( Quick tip...get there early you wont regret it)

We decided that we would return to this restaurant as we enjoyed it very much on our first visit to Albufeira in October 2014. The restaurant was very busy, all the Shalom areas were packed out but we were lucky to get a table for two while other larger groups had to wait for bigger ones. Considring how busy the... More

Visit albufeira old town and this restaurant is always packed. This was the main reason we decided to get a table. Good staff, lots of menu choice, reasonable prices for main tourist area and VAST portions. The plates are overflowing !!! Really tasty too. The mixed grill for two is exceptional value. One of the best in the old town.

Get the mixed grill to share and you won't regret it. Epic and absolute cracking value for money. The fact it's always packed tells you everything you need to know. We went back during our holiday because it was that good.

very popular busy restaurant and it is easy to see why, they have big portions of real comfort food at a reasonable price . If you are really hungry you can take up their offer of all you can eat chicken wings. Not fine dining but certainly fine cooking
