A very good lunch on a Friday with Live music. This a fun place and the sum total is more than the constituent parts. A beautiful sunny day in October and not a spare table. The restaurant outside dining area has been expanded and the loos vastly improved. The food and the service are just as good as ever. We... More

An absolute resounding yes. This is quite unique. Almost a shed on an unspoilt beach, quite a small menu but absolutely first class. They have live music on a Friday and Sunday and the atmosphere is amazing. I spent a week in Portugal the first week in October and was not sure about BJ's when I first saw it. We... More

We had a great meal here for 10 people. The food was good, but the view is the best thing about the restaurant - it's spectacular. What a fabulous location for a restaurant. I think it's one of the most beautiful places I've ever eaten. You can walk along the beach from Quarteira. We only discovered this because 2 taxi... More

It was the perfect spot as we strolled beyond quarteira's promenade and further along the beach. We only had drinks and nibbles there but it was just idyllic. Worth a visit indeed.

We were swimming in the beach and felt a little peckish. Saw BJs in the distance and decided to see give it a go....and so glad we did. It's a gem of a place. We got there at around 2 and ended up having a bigger lunch than we planned, as the food on other people's tables looked so good.... More

Sunday leisurely lunch with good music, fun, beers, wines, cocktails and really good food. Very popular so book well in advance to avoid disappointment and ask for a beachside table. The staff are efficient, friendly and good fun.

A find on our 5th trip to the Algarve, and will now be a staple for our future trips. Fabulous setting and lovely staff. The food was delicious and enthusiastically served.

We decided to try this restaurant after reading all the good reviews It wasn't busy when we went there, a shame as there wasn't a great atmosphere Food was ok, staff were pleasant It's a hard restaurant to find in the dark Give it a go, I think it's more a lunch time place

We were recommended BJs by a friend. We are really glad we came as the location is fab. The staff are all really friendly also. I had sea bass and my partner had squid which were the specials that day. Both were really tasty. We walked to BJs from Vilamoura which was a bit of a trek but a nice... More
