Sunday lunch

Another great lunch at BJs. So the season has only just started and they have been open just a week but the vibe is in full swing. Great large Seabass, chips, salas and coleslaw, cannot be beaten.

Been here a few times now, was always willing to give it another try. Setting is great but service and prices let it down especially if it is busy, food can be a bit hit and miss and does not warrant the prices charged. Generally there is a good atmosphere there but at times it can resemble a creche, I... More

Great food! Friendly staff. No ATM, and less than obvious access. On the upside it's usually not too crowded (at least on these sunny October days). Nicest beach restaurant I could find around these parts.

We love the beach by BJs so often visit, but we tend not to eat there anymore as you can get just as good a meal for a fraction of the price, just five minutes down the road. The food is good at BJs but in our opinion, the prices are inflated to pay for the gorgeous view. The toilet... More

Can't fault this place, inexpensive, nice location, staff were friendly and helpfully. We didn't plan to stop, for anything more than a coffee, but stayed for lunch when we saw the menu and quality of the food. The live music on the Sunday afternoon we were there was a great bonus

Fantastic Family run beach bar - love the location and very kid friendly. Live music gets the atmosphere going and a dress up box for the kids keeps them entertained. Fish is the thing to go for here - all fresh and grilled to order. Compared to the other beach bars between Quarteira and Faro it's well priced and much... More

First time in area for many years and we were recommended to book BJ's on Sunday. It gets booked up so book in advance, you won't be disappointed. We had a drink in our hand in less than a minute and a great table. We were lucky with the weather so great to be sat outside in the hub. We... More

Ate at bj's today at 2pm. Had booked online from the uk as it was hubbys birthday. Lovely spot and great views Had the covery bit that all restaurants have which had some nice breads and dips, the dips were handmade as opposed to the little sardine paste in a foil dish that you usually get, so that was nice....
