Visited whilst on holiday with friends. We stumbled upon this place after a quick google search. What more could you ask for? Friendly staff, stunning setting, great food, live music, good drinks... simply excellent. It's also very reasonably priced. If you're in the area you would be mad not to visit. See you again.

Down on the beach, in the sunshine, great food, excellent wine, happy live music, like minded people = fantastic experience. If you are holidaying in the Vilamoura area hunt down this beach restaurant, ran by an English couple they have created a good menu, great wines and if you cannot enjoy your experience in this setting then you need to...

We had a great lunch here for 6 in August. BJ's is a very cool, laid back beachside restaurant serving good quality unpretentious food in a great beachfront setting. The waiting staff were really friendly, engaged with everyone and genuinely looked like they were enjoying themselves. The Scottish guitarist added to the fun and my Coldplay request was delivered with... More

Really nice restaurant on the beach. Great seafood, fresh grilled fish and prawns are recommended. Friendly and engaged staff with good customer service. Also have good meat options if you are not into fish - grilled chicken and a very meaty cheeseburger

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

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
