Julia's - the Original Beach Restaurant

International Seafood Portuguese Beach Mediterranean Steak House Vegetarian Sunday Lunch Live Music Beach Bars Wedding Venues

Julia’s is one of the best beach bars and restaurants in the Algarve. For over 40 years, they’ve been serving delicious, fresh food by the sea, served with smiles and sunshine. The fun times at the beach bar are legendary and the setting is unbeatable.

Julia’s is located between Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo, on the gorgeous long expanse of Garrão beach. Open all day and all year round, Julia’s is a fabulous spot for beachside relaxation and sunset meals.

New for 2023!
Julia's has just opened a fabulous new sunset deck! Perched above the beachside bar, its elevated position means those sunset views are even more spectacular than before.
Take note - this spot is going to be the hottest sport for 2023, so get your bookings in early and enjoy champagne and cocktails!

The upper-level dining room and terrace offer the most spectacular ocean views – endless glittering blues and golden sands. Both are airy and spacious with plenty of space for everyone. Even in the winter, the panoramic windows mean that beachside feeling is always there. Julia’s famous beach bar is down a few steps, right by the beach. Laid-back, bare-foot R&R is on tap here, all day long, as well as your favourite cold tipples and cocktails. Enjoy tasty food at the tables or bask in the sunshine in the lounge. And there’s even a beach service – they’ll serve you right at your sunbed if that’s your preference.

Julia’s full menu is available no matter where you choose to dine. You get to enjoy the à la carte menu at the Beach Bar as well as on the main terrace and dining room. And there is something for everyone – a great array of meat, fresh fish and seafood, vegetarian dishes as well as a snack menu. The seafood is fabulous – special mention for Julia’s famous King Prawns with African rice, the grilled oysters and the King Crab. There are Angus steaks, rack of lamb and chicken dishes. Click the attachments tab above to see the full menu.

Julia’s hosts regular summer live music sessions – Sunday afternoons and Wednesday evenings – with great sounds keeping the sunny atmosphere lively.

With such a fabulous location, plenty of space and great food, it is no surprise that Julia’s is a very popular wedding and events venue, with bespoke packages available.
