Enjoyed a great meal here at exceptional value with Groupon voucher, though they also do some good value meal packages themselves, particularly £50 for a three course including a bottle of wine for two people. We enjoyed great steak Diane served with fresh vegetables and potatoes, preceded by lush chicken livers. Great food and really pleasant service.

Friendly staff accompanied by the nicest steak I've had in a long time makes this place an absolute winner. We had a groupon offer, but would have happily paid full price. We will definitely be going again.

Second time to AJ's not disappointed, excellent staff, food and atmosphere. We got a Groupon voucher online which saved us ££'s and although wonderful value at full price the discount made it exceptional value.

Got a voucher deal. I must have walked past this bistro countless times and would never have thought to have gone in beforefor a meal. I read reviews before buying the voucher and saw excellent comments so thought id give it a bash. Didn't really go with too high expectations but was hopeful of a decent meal following the reviews...

This restaurant is a real gem in Blackpool. 8 of us were up in blackpool for the wend and we dinned here saturday night. The food was fresh and tasty, the ambience nice and the owner couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble even packing up food and letting us borrow cutlery to take away!... More

We visited AJ's on a Groupon deal, but it would have been equally impressive at full price. The only choices off the menu (due to the deal) was the fillet steak, but we were free to choose from anything else on the menu. We were on a two course deal, and three of our foursome went for starters. We chose... More

AJ's has always been special to us as a couple. We had our first date here, which was amazing and then we got engaged here, which again was soooo special. So naturally, we wanted to spend our first anniversary here. My husband told the staff on booking over the phone our story, and how AJ's was a part of our... More

This was my second visit to AJ's Bistro for a birthday. The food surpasses expectations and is served piping hot, fresh and elegantly. The mussels were simply divine as were the beautifully cooked steaks. The ambience is warm, friendly and relaxed, with staff who take a real interest and pride in being there. A wedding party was in the restaurant... More

AJ's has been on my list of places to try on one of our regular mid-week nights out for a while, based on its consistently good reviews,so when one of my dining companions contacted me to say she had seen a 2 course special deal on one of the many Internet offer companies, she ordered one and we went on...

I have just returned from my visit of AJ's Bistro in Blackpool. Whilst most of the reviews on here are exemplary I must slightly disagree. I had booked through Groupon on a deal for 2 courses for 2 people at £19. I was told (once I had tried to order) that there was no muscles starter and the Lamb and... More
