We came to Julia's a couple of years ago and were not impressed. However this year (Aug 2018) we thought we would give it another go and were very impressed. The location must be one of the best on the Algarve, stunning views overlooking the...More

If dining is about enjoying, Julia's should have Michelin stars! The food is good beach side fare - fresh seafood simply, stylishly presented. The staff handle large parties with large alcohol intake with a sense of humour and fun. It is the Sunday afternoon sing-song...More

Very busy restaurant on the beach. Good service. Starters were huge and delicious. We were so impressed and full so we were a bit disappointed with the mains after such delicious starters. But quite good value for the portion sizes and nice atmosphere.

The restaurant is and has always been geared for families and children. Whether dining in the lounge ,restaurant or beach bar your children will be fine. There is an extensive menu for all and a children's menu too
