'It has to be BJs on a Sunday' is what it says on the staff tshirts.... It was busy and hectic, and a reservation most definitely needed. The staff were working hard as the place was heaving. The bar area is small and not exactly a comfortable place to stay for long as it is unavoidable not to be in... More

Recently stopped at this bar after a long walk with my family and my young grandson. We were approached by a member of staff as soon as we put one foot in this beach shack. We were told they could not serve us as all tables were reserved and we asked if we could at least have a drink as... More

Thanks for taking/wasting your time writing a review of our restaurant when you did not eat or drink in it. Every year we get one person who decides to penalise us on Tripadvisor because we are busy and they cant get a table, bitter comes to mind….For the sake of other Tripadvisor users deciding whether to come to BJs -...

Came here 2 years ago and had to come back. Amazing seafood served by cool, relaxed staff who have a really comfortable style which helps you chill by the sea. If you can, try and get there on a Sunday as they have live music to accompany your experience.

I have visited BJs five times in three weeks, both for dinner and for lunch. Every time it has been a completely wonderful experience. The staff are lively, charming, amusing and attentive. The food could grace the table of any fine dining restaurant. The menu has something for everyone, including amazing desserts. Every day there is a specials board with... More

Went twice both times excellent food, excellent service. Gets busy best to book. Request shade unless you like baking while you eat. You must go.

Had a lovely leisurely lunch here with superb service, great food and live music. The only thing not playing was the weather as it was very cloudy. However this did not dampen a great time and let's face it 27c isn't too shabby. Will be back again soon!😀

Bloody fantastic! Came here wth some girlfriends for a 30th birthday dinner and we had one of the best meals I have ever had. The location is stunning - right down on the beach with wind shelters that can be rolled out if required. Eating as the sun set was beautiful. The staff all speak impeccable English and are friendly... More

We have just come back from 2 weeks in the Algarve and visited BJ's on a number of occasion. I cant' fault the place a fab location with great views and for me it beats other places that charge twice the price of BJ's hands down. The food is fresh and all cooked to perfection with the catch of the... More

I just wish our visit to BJs was more than just an annual one. We always have a great meal, lots of fun and terrific service. The gorgeous young men who looked after our table of eight women tonight did so with humour and perfect attention. Two of us had the seafood curry which was generous and packed with flavour....
