We can definitely recommend Shalom. Good food and service. We recommend meeting early in the restaurant if you do not want to stand and wait for a seat.

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.
