Simply a great place for lunch or dinner

We all went to BJs last night for dinner (2 adults, 3 kids) and this place ticks every box. Firstly the food is great. Fresh, well cooked, interesting and tasty. Secondly the service is impeccable. These guys really want you to have a good time and it really feels like everyone there is on that... read more

We have been to this beach bar before when we stopped in Vilamoura. So had to return as it is a lovely spot and good food. We walk from Vilamoura to Quarteria and then along the beach for 10mins, it is worth the walk. Great seafood and service. Clams & Garlic Prawns were favourites this time. I would recommended booking... More

This was our third visit to BJ's Oceanside which is a lovely beach bar / restaurant run by a very pleasant young English couple who clearly appreciate every customer they have. There were 26 of us in total and all of us had a great day. Music was laid on which made the atmosphere really buzzy. Unlike some of the... More

Really good service, great food, we enjoyed every aspect of the visit. I had grilled prawns to start with, which were huge in plenty of sauce, followed by sea bass with a tomato salad and fries. Simply cooked in butter and filleted, so easy to eat. Kids had the kids menu, which was fine and my wife had Piri Piri... More

Great to see live music extended to include Wednesdays as well as Friday & Sundays. Terrific, laid back, spot with a great vibe. Owners and staff always cheerful and upbeat. Food is always good but secondary in some ways to the fun & the live music. Tough to get a booking, the reason is obvious. Visiting BJs is always one... More

Went for dinner with family and friends. We had two tables, one for 12 and the other for 9. They coped really well, making sure everyone had a drink(quite a challenge with our group) and very friendly service. Food excellent, especially seafood and fish. For some strange reason I fancied a Thai prawn curry, which was very good. Great location... More

We had a table booked at 12.30, and I think we left at 5. Enough said! A brilliant band were playing, the staff were friendly and the food was delicious.

We were a large party of adults & children. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel v welcome. The staff are English which helped from a language point of view. You can't come to this place and not have fish - it's simply delicious. I had sardines to start and then the adults shared sea bass -... More
