For those many people who missed the old Marias beach restaurant at Dunas Durados when it became gentrified and expensive, make the trip to this restaurant, down a track before you get into the centre of Quateria. Run by an English couple with charming youngsters - , Portuguese and English - waiting at table, this is a delight. Great views... More

We have been to BJs three times for lunch on this trip. This is an update as I reviewed it a month or so ago. Two of our lunches have been on Fridays when they have some very good live music. It develops into a bit of a beach party all well behaved fun with a touch of ‘live mic’... More

One of our old favourites and even though we have not been back here for 3 years nothing has changed - great value for money, fresh seafood and an amazing location on the beach watching the sun go down. Well worth a visit...

We were lucky enough to stop off for a quick lunch on the way to airport last week. I can safely say that the food here just gets better and better. We had sea bream, it was beautifully prepared and grilled served with salad and chips and a delicious lemon and butter sauce on the side. The puds were great... More

Lovely beach side restaurant recommend to us. They catered for 12 of us really well and nothing was too much trouble. Great food and great service. I would recommend a visit!

Its on the beach, a bit of the beaten track but worthwhile if you want to sit by the beach and hear the waves crashing. Food is obviously not as cheap as more inland but no rip of neither.

Having holidayed in quarteria for the last few years we made a customary visit to BJS for lunch recently. Unfortunately our visit didn't live up to our expectations and the place seems to have changed and not for the better. Whilst the beach setting is second to none the food was average and overpriced. We weren't made to feel like... More

BJ'S Oceanside, what a gem, well worth a visit if you are in portugal. We were there on a Friday Night and never stopped laughing from the minute we got there. Excellent food, excellent band playing and everyone joined in which includes diners and staff. Service was excellent too. We even finished off with a little swim after our tea,... More

Great little spot with wonderful view, lovely fresh fish and friendly staff. Might want to change who's in charge of the playlist though 📻
