Had dinner with my family at this restaurant. Service was quick and the staff really friendly. We were a party of 9 with 5 children and we all enjoyed our meal. Nice and casual place to chill.

To sit on the beachside relaxed with your family and dressed as you like watching the sea and sunset is just fantastic. To do this in a restaurant that serves up wonderful food and wine by friendly and great staff is just a brilliant bonus. Fabulous time had by my wife and I and two 8 year olds who could... More

Have had a very tasty lunch of grilled squid here today. Very busy but great, unobtrusive service. The restaurant is in a fantastic spot on the beach just outside Quarteira - you will need to book, but well worth it.

Another fun afternoon at Bjs Oceanside. Had planned to go on a Sunday afternoon, but when I emailed them they were already full 2 months in advance.But a sunny Wednesday was just fine. Was sad not to see the fantastic tuna on the specials board. Service was good as always. The brownie on the desert was delicious.

Ate here twice , both times excellent. Right on the beach. Small intimate service. Excellent well cooked fresh seafood. Soup for €5.5 is outstanding value and quality. Piri piri chicken good too. Cheap cheerful wines. Excellent quick friendly staff. Not to be missed if in the area.

Veni Vidi Vici 🍴🍷✔️👍🏻 We have been promising to try this gem by the sea for some years now. We got to dine in the restaurant recently for dinner/supper having heard it being lauded by friends as a place to dine in. Welcomed by a charming male staff member and seated by an equally friendly female at our table which... More

I've been to Bj's a couple of times with my family and have really enjoyed it. The staff are all pleasant and attentive and the location is amazing! Can't go wrong with their chicken and chips which is a favourite of mine and their brownie and ice cream for desert is to die for!!!

Disappointed after visiting BJ’s with the family this evening. The restaurant enjoys an enviably idyllic position on the beach with views over the ocean and the food was fairly good: the pitta came with tasty hummus and tuna, the fish cakes were nice, the sea bream was moist (but pretty small) and the burger was impressive. However, the service was... More

I am very sorry that you felt the service at BJ's was not up to scratch. We try our very hardest and so it is very disappointing when we fall short. It has been a long busy summer and unfortunately in your case it seems that we have let tiredness creep in and made a few mistakes. I hope we... More

This was our second time here. The atmosphere is friendly and laid back. The service is good and the food is fresh and delicious. Prefect location right on the beach.
