If you want great food, atmosphere and vibe, this is definitely the place. My husband enjoyed his birthday and the servers made it extra special!

I’ve been to St Lucia twice and both times the Big Chef restaurant was recommended. Since we stayed in town this second time, we decided to try it. It was totally unexpected. It was sophisticated and delicious--a departure from island food. The bread and steak...was truly fantastic. The service was very upscale--as was the bill--but it was so worth it. We were there during Christmas/New Year’s and the tree was tastefully decorated. Someone from the restaurant was taking photos and later emailed it to us l, making for a memorable time.More

Excellent meal at Big Chef. The food was fantastic and the ambience really wonderful with the piano player. Highly recommended. We were staying at a resort in Morgan Bay and it was a short taxi ride away (subject to traffic which can sometimes be slow...especially early evening)More

We now live in Rodney Bay and this is one of our favourite places to take visitors when we are entertaining. The cuisine is a mixture of Caribbean and western dishes. I love the steak and my wife enjoys the pumpkin soup. A good selection...of wines, both old and new world varietals. If you come on the right nights you can experience one of the best guitarists in the Caribbean Ronald ‘Bo’ Hinks.More

We went here twice during our stay, and both meals we thought were excellent. The place has a nice feel and ambience. The staff are friendly and helpful. The Pistachio herb crusted lamb was so good! ! As was the steak I had the first...time and the ginger ice cream! The smoked onion and mascarpone mash also deserves a mention, lovely! Thank you.More

My boyfriend & I dined at the bar & enjoyed our meal, and conversation with the bartender. The menu was fun; and delicious. It’s an easy safe walk from Coco hotel (which is where we were lodging.)

We booked a table for five and were seated next to the piano. The pianist/singer was superb and even gave us a personal singalong encore at the end of the night. From entering the restaurant,the service was superb, and we enjoyed good banter with our...waiter. We shared bruschetta for a starter, and I chose the fillet mignon for my main course. Accompanied by some very nice red wine, this was the best fillet steak that I have ever tasted - perfectly cooked to the required taste, and just delicious! We had a brilliant evening of food, drink, laughter and entertainment, and were even introduced to the owner and the island’s Director of Tourism ( well we did spend over 1400 EC between us!). It is unlikely that I will ever return to this part of the Caribbean, but if I did, this would be my first port of call for dinner.More

If you are looking for an enyable evening at a restaurant with excellent food, the Big Chef is the restaurant to choose. This is my second year of vacationing at St. Lucia, Rodney Bay, and the BIg Chef was highly recommended by a regular vacationer....My husband and I were extremely pleased by the quality of the food. My husband said the filet mignon was the best he has had. During my two visits, I have enjoyed both the salmon and Mahi grilled fish. The entertainment was the icing on the cake! We truly had a wonderful evening of entertainment and food. The service was outstanding. The owners are "hand on" and made several trips to our table to ensure the evening was going well. You definitely must dine at this restaurant for during a vacation St. Lucia!!!More

Although, it is a steak house, certain days have a happy hour where you can enjoy a cocktail and a happy hour. Contact them to get the specific day and hours. It is situated in the anteroom while you wait for your table.
