Went back to BJs for another lunch. This is really the last of the beach bar/restaurants right on the beach. Enjoyed the ambience/service and food. This time we checked out the piri piri chicken and clams. Both were excellent. There has been a tendancy on the Algarve lately for the Bbqd piri piri chicken to be served in small chunks... More

I always visit BJ's when they have live music on and it's always such a fantastic day spent eating and drinking right on the beach. Couldn't recommend more for people who haven't been before, all the staff are always friendly and nothing is too much! The food is always delicious.

Great little beach bar. Literally on the beach. It is well down off the main road but still easy access and you can't miss it. Run by her and him team out there serving. Great food and service to match. Menu had enough to choose from but not a huge list of things. Prices moderate. Location superb.

BJ's had been strongly recommended and we can see why. Great location on the beach with nice views. Loved the food -all beautifully presented and the service was first class. I had the prawn curry and my wife had the tuna-both delicious. We shared a hummus dip starter. Pretty reasonable prices for the quality and the location We didn't book... More

Love location, service very prompt and friendly. Touch over priced, pork loin was not worth euros. But good vibe and well worth making effort to find it.

We have had lunch here over the past five years or so. It is a very good beach dining experience. You can drive and park there along a very bumpy track or walk from Vale do Lobo (40 mins) along the beach. You need to book in the Summer and it is not open in the evening.This year i felt... More
