You didn’t - that is the point. If you do not appear at a restaurant, how can you judge? If you have an affinity with a restaurant close by, let them have your praise. The past reputation is in the present too and while we...More

It’s a real joy to visit Julia’s simply for the location, the service and of course the excellent food. We always visit this essential beachside restaurant when we stay at the nearby Four Seasons Country Club. The four of us enjoyed the Portuguese fish stew,...More

On a previous visit some weeks before, we booked a table for a Sunday afternoon in September this year. We booked it for 2.00pm, and specifically asked that it would be in the area where the live music was played. No problem says the man....More

Thank you and I do indeed remember your afternoon very well. It has zero to do with your headline whatsoever. If that were the case , we would cram more tables on the terrace where everyone wants to be yet we decide to give clients...More

After an hours walk on soft sand we were ready for food (and drink)! Both well supplied in lovely surroundings overlooking the scene of our walk. The fish was excellent, served with a smile - and we will certainly return.

The service is good but slow but then this has quite a lot of covers and maybe the kitchen struggles to cope on busy evenings. The food is generally good and we have enjoyed a number of good meals over the years, but you have...More

Julia’s, being the oldest standing restaurant along the beach in Vale Do Lobo, the standard of service and food has remained top quality for all of these years. A more relaxed vibe compared to Maria’s and potentially Izzy’s provides a great way to relax either...More

My family and I went for dinner here and to say it was disappointing is an understatement. Our sons meal was burnt as was our fish. The service was non existent, had to go up to order and pay. We will not be back.

After a quick walk along the beach (iPhone torches required!) we arrived at Julia’s to a nice, warm welcome. Between us we sampled chicken, seafood, fish and steak, along with a refreshing bottle of rose. Would definitely return.

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
