“Ribs and more....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

I really enjoy ribs so couldn't pass up giving Shalom II a try. To say I wasn't disappointed is an understatement. Both my son and I went for the ribs with my wife opting for the Chicken schnitzel with mushrooms, peppers and onions. The ribs dropped off the bone and we managed to eat them all and were asked if we wanted more. We duly obliged and were presented with another half rack to share. We managed to 'force' them down and were asked on two further occasions if we wanted more. Truly unlimited ribs.

Wedges made a pleasant change from chips which were piled high with a side salad?

A mistake was made on the bill but this was quickly rectified.

Probably won't be returning but only because it's a long way from our hotel and we've gots lots of other places to try off tripadvisor.

“Best retaurant in Albufeira!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

fantastic restaurant, friendly staff, great food and very reasonable. We visited the place 5-6 times in our 2 weeks here. The all you can eat ribs are to die for, with the staff actively encouraging second helpings and being very attentive.

I'm a huge fan of "Southern Barbeque" joints in the United States - this is a great European alternative! It's billed as a dutch restaurant, and the dutch are a great people that surely welcome people from any nation... give it a try, it's probably my favourite restaurant in Albufeira!

“Ribs Ribs Ribs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

Great place to go and all the good reviews on here about it were right...the ribs are to die for. Only problem I have with this restaurant and it's not specific to here, all restaurants where you sit outdoors, if you're a non smoker, go inside...don't let it spoil your meal - people smoke outside and tables are quite close together.
BUT that's every restaurant and just unfortunate that we were sandwiched in between two tables of smokes....I'm sure if we had asked, we would have been moved with no issues...great friendly vibe from the staff.
The ribs here were divine, not fatty at all, and staff were attentive to re-fill plates. Oh we had dessert there too, was yummy. Think the ribs were 11.95euros, would definitely recommend without hesitation.

“Ribs to die for.”

If you only eat out once while in Alberfura you must try this place. Talk about good food and value for money.

“yummy ribs :D !!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

For 11.50 euros you can get all you can eat ribs with chips or wedges and salad. My fiance ordered this & loved it!!

You get a fair bit of meat on the ribs which easily fall off the bone. The sauce was very lovely and the staff are happy to provide you with your 2nd's.

I had cordon bleu (chicken with ham, cheese & breadcrumbs) with chips and salad. It was ok however if you visit this place stick with the ribs which are described as the best in town

Staff are friendly.

If you go make sure you get a seat outside which is more romantic and allows you to experience the old town at night!
