Description: Julia's restaurant,beach bar & lounge. The original beach restaurant. Not just a beach restaurant but a lifestyle for generations for nearly 50 years
Reviewed 13 October 2017 via mobile

Visited Julia’s for lunch as part of a lovely day on the beach. As ever the food and service was very good with the chilli prawns with African rice always being a favourite dish. Plus with the beach bar available all day for drinks this is an easy place to spend a very enjoyable day.

This is a lovely location, we got a table right on the beach (there is a lower deck). You know food at a restauarnt like this is going to be over-priced, and that you can buy the same thing inland for less, so at a bit of a loss why other reviews are critical of the pricing. All the restaurants along this part of the coast will charge the same, it's called the market price. The service was excellent and we had really good food, shared some clams to start and grilled prawns and a fish stew for main. Couldn't fault it really. We had a magical evening with friends in a great location, with the waves breaking nearby. A drinkable wine is euro 25 per bottle, mains euro 20 -25 per person plus sides, so not cheap hence the four star overall.

If you go to Julia's in the mind that the food may not meet your expectations based on the price , but take in the stunning setting literally perched on the beach then you won't be disappointed. Arrive an hour before sunset and grab a couple of cocktails in the beach bar, watch the sun set and then go up to eat.

Restrooms DISGUSTING.
The owners need to SPEND MONEY ON THIS VERY TIRED RESTAURANT.
Food is good BUT YOU NEED MORE THAN THAT. Food must be consumed in a spotless environment with spotless ablution facilities.
Spend some of your money and do the place up and we'll be back..
DON'T AND WE'LL GO ELSEWHERE.
PLENTY OF PLACES SERVING GOOD FOOD.
Great views.

Dear madam
Try finding another restaurant let alone a beach restaurant that has continually invested in its business and its staff.
No one else has complained. The restrooms are brand new. In addition to this , a further set of wash rooms have been built at the front side of the restaurant for he paying public plus the non paying public. We clean these facilities regularly which are only in such a condition occasionally because people like you make it so.
You are either confusing us with another restaurant or simply blinkered.
