Visited Big Blu over the weekend. Had great service, food was delicious and the cocktails are to die for. Definitely a must visit when in Mosselbay. Thanks Stacey and Randy for your great hospitality and service. We will be back!

They have very nice cocktails, they have a great view. Seating outside and inside and separate area for smokers. If you want to have a good time then go.

We went here as a group and the view was great. We were seated quickly with drinks arriving shortly afterwards. We ordered a starter and our main meals, and had to wait quite a while for the food. Our mains arrived before the starter without much explanation. One of the sauces only came after the meal was finished. The starter... More

Atmosphere and location is great, milkshakes was yummy and so were the calamari and the hake. 2 recommendations - have someone greet and seat customers so everyone gets a menu right away and doesn't have to call the waitress and maybe more choice on the menu. Staff were lovely and mostly smiley.

On holiday and always looking for the place with the best view, we went to Big Blu for a drink and a view of the ocean at high tide. Received and seated with a friendly smile but that quickly changed once we ordered. The staff were more interested with their own conversations and clearly did not care about the customer.... More

We have just had lunch at big blu where we received very poor service and poor management. Our waitress seemed to be preoccupied and forgot our drinks order and our food in the kitchen. It was only after 10 min after ordering our initial meals that we were told they were out of stock of the yellowtail. The prawns although... More

Have been to Big Blu several times - have always come away smiling. The deep fried calamari is by far and away the best I have had. Jake, the manager, is hands-on, always friendly and welcoming. The view and position is stunning and the atmosphere is relaxed. If you are expecting white tablecloths etc. don't go to Big Blu; go... More

Menu a bit limited. Had snoek parcel. Was really good. Special Blu Cocktail great, but pricey. Otherwise all good ! Was out of stock of some important local beers like castle light, marzen gold, castle milk stout. Will return.

Had long-standing memories of a previous visit to this site, and, although the restaurant geography has changed, it is still in a fantastic position. But what a waste! Key part of the memories is "fish caught today" but the offerring on our recent visit was far removed from that. There is little more to say except that this might be... More

Big Blue has Lovely views and it is enjoyable to have a drink outside on the patio, although the food is not so good. The outside tables are not clean and needs more attention.
