We booked AJ's solely on the strength of TA reviews. We are locals and tend to avoid town centre restaurants as we like to go further afield for quality dining. It's pleasant inside, but more Bistro than romantic restaurant, but the food more than makes up for location. We went on a Sunday evening at opening time so it was... More

The service was impressive ! We went on a "Deal" and pretty much all the menu was available, with an additional charge for fillet steak and that was only £2. Unfortunately, they had run out of duck ( which is my favourite ) but lots of other thing to chose from. Unusually, we were brought two taster glasses of wine... More

Working in Blackpool over the summer (in the evenings - ie late) it's been difficult to find a decent eaterie open when we're free after work. AJ's has come to our rescue on 2 separate Sunday evenings (after 9pm) when we finished early, for birthday celebrations, very kindly staying open later to accommodate us, once we'd booked. Run by a... More

Went to AJ's Bistro on a Deal Monster offer, and not disappointed, the food was first class we paid a little extra for KIng Prawn starter and Fillet steak £2 per dish, but to be honest if we'de had gone solo without DM it would have been worth every penny. Excellent meal well done |AJ's.

We visited this restaurant because of the gluten free options on the menu... and they didn't disappoint. The food was fantastic and so much choice. I would most definitely go again. The only downer was the realisation that we had been lied to. We stopped by to book a table on our way back to the hotel only to be... More

Called in for a pre-theatre dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was very friendly and the food very good indeed. I ate vegetable risotto - the best risotto I've had! Will be back next time we're in town for a show.

We read up on this before going to Blackpool and were impressed by the reviews given by other people. We were not let down!! We were greeted by Danni, front of house, and immediately made to feel welcome; she went through the menu with us and made some recommendations. The food was excellent, cooked and presented to an extremely high... More
