“big fish = big dissapointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

big fish is a big disapointment! the service was TERRIBLE it took 1/2 and hour to get our food! and then we found out why we waited, and that was so they could put it on a huge plate and serve it with a huge salad that was foul DO NOT GO TO BIG FISH, if you want nice food great service and fantastic drinks go to CANOA!

“Great dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Our group of six included three kids and we all loved what we ordered. Very accommodating. Exactly the kind of local seafood you are looking for when you travel to the Caribbean.

“Best restaurant in St Maarten!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

This is our 3rd trip to St Maarten in 3 years. We discovered the island several years during one of our cruises of the Caribbean. We always stay in Oyster Pond. It is a wonderful area with a beautiful beach and a great restaurant- Big Fish! The staff is excellent. We love Brenda, Romeo, and Ozzy! The food is excellent! We have eaten here 3 times on this visit. Our favorites were the shrimp appetizer with 4 dips, the beet salad, the Kobe beef short ribs, the grouper with 4 sauces to choose from, and the sirloin steak. They have a wonderful wine list. Go enjoy a wonderful evening!

“Great fish in Lovely Setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

Four of us ate here our first night on the island and really liked the experience. We ate outside with the nice sound of their fountains. Nice choices of fish with many sauces and preparations to choose from. Friendly service rounded out a very pleasant evening.

“EAT HERE IT WAS PHENOMENAL!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

My fiancé and I went to big fish last night. I am not a huge sea food lover but they Had many different choices on the menu. The waitress was very quick and attentive. We got bread right away along with water and the wine we ordered. The food was prompt and so delicious. The presentation was great as well. Another waiter came around and gave us along with another couple some free shots to try. The atmosphere was beautiful--the flowers made it smell like body lotion in the whole place! We sat outside and had the waterfall and beautiful plants to enjoy. Definitely worth the money we paid. Come and experience this restaurant on the island it was so worth it!!
