Julia's is "the place to be seen". It's stylish with lovely views over the beach. But I popped in for a glass of wine to watch the sunset and was shocked at the price! Quite out of order really. Julia's gets busy on Sunday lunchtimes...More

Absolute Rubbish madam You will never find a restaurant more engaging with its customers. At €5 for a glass of house wine, you would know that it is probably cheaper than neighbouring restaurants for the same. Had you been before as allegedly stated, you would...More

Fantastic! Went with some colleagues after a supplier meeting. The view was fantastic, straight across the beach. We sat outside with umbrellas for sun shade. All the food was great, especially the butterfly prawns and the Piri Piri chicken. Highly recommend.

Enjoyed my meal here. Had the breaded veal and spaghetti. Very large portion size so couldn't finish it. My friend had the fish stew which looked amazing.

Nice location with lovely views just off the beach. I get the impression this was the first restaurant here on this trip. The original if you will. Not sure if much has changed since it opened. For the money, the food looked thrown together. Steak...More
