Fantastic for a fun Sunday lunch

We have been to this restaurant on a Sunday lunch several times. It is very casual you don't need to dress up. There is live music and everyone has a great time with some dancing at the front if you feel like it. The food is fresh and tasty. I would recommend the fish dishes. Service is fantastic... read more

Ok I do get what all the fuss is about the location is amazing, and it's got a lovely relaxed beachy vibe. But the prices reflect the location and the food is always pretty sub standard. We tend to go here each time we visit more because we love the beach not the restaurant. But last visit the food was... More

Thank you for your review of BJ's. I am sorry that for the most part you did not enjoy your visit. We try our hardest to keep our standards up and to keep everyone happy but inevitably in the summer the odd mistake gets made and standards slip. I have spoken to the kitchen and we have removed the bruschetta... More

Great beach location, sometimes with live music. Outstanding service. Didn't find it expensive at all for the quality of food offered. Also no pressure to 'turn' the table. Have eaten there several times now and it's very consistent. Try to book the front deck.

Entering into a buzzing open air bar on the beach to live music was fabulous, we were sure to book a table to ensure to be in the middle of everything to enjoy to atmosphere. Drinks are a little more expensive here but with the view over the ocean and the beach at your feet it really is worth it.... More

Just as when we visited BJs last year the food is really good and the service great. The staff are as considerate to our small children as they are to the adults and the menu offers something to please everyone. BJs is a must visit for us now

Eat here regularly when in the Algarve. Had lunch today which was absolutely fab. Tried a new dish which was superb. Staff friendly and providing excellent service. Great location. Quirky fun - dressing up box. Good wine list. Just a fantastic experience.

Found this restaurant by complete chance whilst out exploring and what a find! A very warm welcome on arrival with a great atmosphere. We hadn't booked and it was clearly very busy but they went out their way to make space for us. Great views, fabulous food, and fantastic friendly service, highly recommend.

Fantastic food and great company. This place gets VERY busy on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Make sure to book a table before you visit. The view is fantastic as it is literally right on the beach. The fish is fresh, and nothing was disappointing. The staff if friendly and do their best to make everyone happy and satisfied. N.B. It's... More

Yes a fantastic location, however I found this place to be overrated and very very over priced. I can not see why they charge such high prices, it is just like any other beach bar.
