orange shirts - nice fast service

Great place to eat/drink if you want to get in and out fast, but they don't pressure you to make room for others. Nice location in markets at night

This is a great wee place! My mum and I had steaks there and they were delicious, cooked to perfection and massive portions. The waitress was very pleasant and it's good value too.

This restaurant was the find of the holiday. The food was great and big portions, reasonably priced and everybody in the family liked it. The staff were also very friendly. The only down side was the televisions only playing fire? Don't know what that's about. It's not the biggest restaurant so make sure you book if it's a big party.

We visited here on recommendation from a couple staying at same hotel as us. We went for lunch and were seated by a friendly waitress. We ordered garlic bread with cheese to start and olives, which was nice. We went for the mixed kebab starter which came with chips, salad, rice and pitta breads, garlic mayo and a spicy salsa...

We had pizza and satay chicken for lunch at Shalom. The menu stated the pizzas were made from home made dough and oven baked. Well, it may have looked alright but the base tasted like a pre-made shop bought one. There was also way too much cheese on top and no tomato sauce. Satay chicken was ok, chips were fine.... More
