We've eaten here for a number of years now and it's always the first restaurant we go to when the weathers good. Amazing views right on the ocean and very friendly staff, the owners (a lovely couple Bex and J) are really hands on and very happy to chat - they even have two lovely spaniels who always love a...

The location is excellent and the restaurant pleasant. The food is, in general good, but for the same price you can eat a lot better in several other similar venues. Wines horribly overpriced.

Thanks for a really great lunch. The food was lovely and the restaurant was so child friendly. Both our children loved the dressing up box, and our four year old was very pleased to have a polaroid taken and placed on the wall in the restaurant in her princess outfit. On top of that what a great location - we... More

We ate here in late September 2013. My sister-in-law had booked BJs for a big family party, but we liked it so much we went back several days in a row. It is hard to fault the food, the staff or the incredible location! Nothing was too much trouble and the staff were wonderful with all the children too. My... More

They try to get too many people through and never say that they are full. Children wait so long for order that when it comes they are already full of fizzy drinks. If they cut down on numbers and then they would not run out of fish etc. Usually short of staff.

A wonderful location for a beach-side lunch. With a view of the sea, wonderful food and excellent service you can't go wrong. This place was recommended by a friend and it didn't disappoint. I loved it so much, I've already been back and intend to return again when I am in Villamoura next. Best prawns I've ever had (they are... More

Bex and Jay - Thank you so much for two great sessions! I'm biased of course, I know, but you've struck gold guys. Perfect location for sun worshipers, excellent beach area and heavenly sunsets, probably the most picturesque location in the area. Food is simple but great, and the live music makes it lively and fun, it suits all ages.... More

We have been to BJ's quite a few times and my parents who live in the Algarve use it regularly. In the past we have had very friendly, efficient experience - not today. No apparent record of our reservation, which is essential for a good spot on a sunny Sunday, luckily we got a table. I appreciate it was busy,... More

I have been to this restaurant 3 times and it just keeps getting better. I have spotted a slight rise in price but still well worth it. Its location is stunning, can't wait to go back..
