We always like to end our holiday with lunch at Julia's. It has a lovely setting right by the beach. We have always luckily been able to sit outside.

Very good beach side restaurant with good food and service. Are here in October with a golf party. Everyone enjoyed their meals with the king crab salad and fillet steak being the stand out favourites. The portion sizes are very generous. The barman was very knowledgeable and friendly recommending some lesser known spirits for us to sample after dinner from... More

We dined here on two occasions. The restaurant is accessible from the beach and from the main road. Food and the service was excellent. Would recommend a visit.

Julias is just what it says it is- a restaurant on the beach -have been coming here since 1988 -and it has not changed a whole lot in essence- but just smartened up a bit and of course the prices have increased We eat in a lot of very smart places, but always walk here to just relax and enjoy...

I have visited twice for lunch in the last few weeks, once with my wife and once with five male golf buddies after a round of golf.The experience was the same each time. Service good , good range of choice on the menu and everyone happy with their food while admiring their neighbour's choices. On previous occasions I have been... More

I'm surprised at some of the negative reviews here, we thought this restaurant was excellent; good food and service, a good selection of drinks and a beautiful beach setting with a roof terrace for drinks to chill and watch the sunset. We went to this restaurant twice during a stay nearby, and this is because of the good variety of... More

We have visited all of the restaurants along this strip of the beach over the years and Julias is definitely the worst food and service out of them all. We stopped here for lunch and wish we hadn't :( I ordered a prawn & avocado salad which was revolting. It came out within a minute which made us think that... More

Having read your review and your previous locations of comments, it appears that you have a lot in common with Master Swifty b on trip advisor who also Enjoys leaving fake reviews all over the place. So apparently you came for lunch... when You toast cheese in between 2 slices of bread, I would suggest that the heat transforms the... More

We went with a group off friends for my fiancés birthday! What a day. Good food, great views, sunshine and an electric atmosphere. We will be back. Thank to all the staff for looking after us.

Every time I visit Quinta I go to Julias. Gorgeous fresh sea food sitting in the sunshine above the beach. Tiger prawns with black rice is expensive but worth every euro. The simpler the better (grilled with butter & garlic) with a jug of white sangria makes for a perfect meal.

Thank Wexford1983
