Beautiful little spot with a shabby chic theme. Ever bite was a little piece of heaven. They offer something for everyone. Staff were fantastic and celebrated our anniversary with us. Would definitely recommend this wonderful little spot.

Located within walking distance of the Oyster Bay Beach Resort this is a gem. The entire restaurant both inside seating and outside seating is completely in white. The food was excellent served on a large platter/bowl. I had grouper in a curry sauce. The grouper was on the right, potatoes in the middle and in four small bowls were a... More

The restaurant itself is beautiful, too bad the food and staff don't hold up their side of the bargain. The fish was over cooked,the drinks watered down and the waitress was just plain rude. For this we receive a $109 tab for 2 people, needless to say I won't be back.

The people were really nice but a VERY limited wine menu. The food was good and the outside area was nice to sit in. I enjoyed my dinner but feel that there are other places nearby that were much better.

Big Fish is a smart looking restaurant with most things in a clean looking white. At night I recommend that you eat on the patio under the stars. Due to a lack of light pollution the stars really shine.

Our experience for dinner was memorable. Beautiful outdoor seating, great music (even my teenage kids commented on the music), cheerful wait staff and wonderful food! All of us were very happy with our food selections. The grouper was served with curry sauce or lobster sauce. Both were excellent!! The coconut shrimp appetizer and a salad made a meal for our...

One of our best meals on the island! What a beautiful restaurant with a great setting. Michael was an awesome server and took great care of us. All of the employees that we came in contact with were actually exceptional, which seems to be a rarity at a lot of places on the island. Big Fish is a must do... More
