Good beach bar.

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... read more

Visited this beach bar restaurant in September 2014 and it was late evening and the sun was setting. What a great location. We enjoyed the sardines and piri piri chicken all very Portuguese. This restaurant is hard to find the easiest way is to walk the beach from Quartera. Make the effort it is well worth it

We heard so much about BJs from friends over the past year particularly It is an ideal location with the atmosphere of a genuine by the sea shack in the real sense Glad we saw this restaurant and demystified the place at last Worth a visit🍴

I brought my teenage daughters here for lunch on a hot Easter day. Very good service. Delicious sea bass. Good salmon. Perfect location right on the beach. Rather pricey but glad we came.

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. Service by Rob and the boys was as friendly and professional as usual. For a beach meal his 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
