“Tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

I actually can't believe the bad reviews on here about this place.

I had heard about the all you can eat ribs but found this place instead of Shalom II. The waiter escorted us to our table and took our drinks order and then our food. We ordered Nacho's to start then I had a burger and my partner had a chicken dish. This came with two homemade dips which were delicious! I have to admit though - the portion sizes are massive.

This is a great place to visit. Please do not be put off by the bad reviews.

“Excellent. A must visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Having eaten in the amazing Shalom II my wife and I felt compelled to try the original Shalom down the street. We were definately not disappointed. Ordered the mixed grill for 2- very different from usual English Mixed grill. More of a Kebab really. But full of flavour and taste- something many of its competitors were sorely lacking in. Followed up with a very tasty desert. An essential destination for anyone who appreciates their food!

“mmmm ribs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Popped in here for lunch on Friday as wanted something different, as weird as it sounds Portugal does British food well but real Portuguese isn't that easy to find so we wanted a good alternative. Anyway we settled upon this little dutch beauty. Fantastic atmosphere and for foodies an ecleptic mix on the menu. We opted for the mixed grill with a difference. The pork ribs melted in you mouth, the spiced chicken was just right and the shredded pork was really tasty. They came served with salad, rice, Pittas and chips all good and hot hot and the portion was huge! The service was fab attentive but not intrusive and including drinks for us both the whole meal came to €21·00. Definitely worth a second visit.

“Great Food, Great Service, Great Price!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

My husband and i had our evening meal here on the recommendation of our son and his friends and i have to say we weren't left disappointed. We had the mixed grill for two and it was simply delicious, the ribs are to die for!! The service was great, attentive without being in your face, polite and friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend this eatery and will certainly go there again next time we are visiting Albufeira. Thank you to everyone there, keep up the fantastic job!!
