Visited BJs on a very blustery day and it was chilly. The welcome, however, was warm, both human and canine. Nice choice from menu. Enjoyed the seasonal fruits in the salad. Husband had great seafood platter. Will be back!

We stayed in a Villa in Vilamoura for a week and wanted to go and have a coffee in the morning on the beach. Found this after some google searching - soo happy i did.

Decided to call in as we were taking a walk on the beach from Quarteria. Looked like a little sandwich place but we were really surprised. Attentive staff and good choice on menu from salads to Piri Piri Chicken. Had a lovely lunch with uninterrupted sea views, would love to try it again on an evening

A return visit, we liked it so much last time.........really enjoyed the Scottish chef's cooking! Great easy-going atmosphere......we all loved the food. Shared a starter plate. Friends had fresh fish which was well liked. I had the three fish cakes, tasty but a little over-done. Like the style here, very efficient friendly staff. And a dressing up box to keep... More

Stopped here for a drink while walking the beach. The service was fast and friendly. All in all, a nice break during our beach walk.

What a neat little spot it's like you are in an Australian surf shack. Literally stumbled across this little gem today as we were out for a walk. Popped in for a beer to rehydrate and had a very light lunch. Food was awesome very fresh and tasty. If you want to do something different And are staying in Villamoura... More

Right on the beach down a dirt track and off the 'passers by' route the food and service at this restaurant are excellent. It is not cheap, being about the same as fine dining but the location is great and it is a fun place to eat, especially fish courses.
