Fresh fish and perfect serving size. We enjoy having dinner on their patio. Service is very good and every meal we've had there was excellent.

We tried to eat at restaurants scattered around the island and chose Big Fish based on TA reviews. Will rate this as awesome. Our group had fish or meat, (filet Mignon, Snapper, Scallops). Saw many tables get the Sushi rolls. They must be outstanding as so many were ordered. Must try this on our next visit. Pay cash and get... More

My husband and I discovered Big Fish on our trip to St. Maarten in April. The atmosphere, the food and the service were excellent. The owners, Mike and Teresa Wilson, who personally came around to our table were very personable. We were so glad we found Big Fish at the beginning of our stay because we return on 3 different...

My brother had given us reservations here as a gift on our honeymoon. The restaurant ambiance was fabulous but the food was outstanding! The waitstaff was polite and knowledgable...get the grouper if it is available, you will not be disappointed! The signature drinks were great (a specialty Martini) and the highlight was being serenaded by the tree frogs! Great fun... More

So I had my wedding reception back in Dec and everything was perfect so I decided to go back with the gIrls for a fun Saturday night out. From the moment we walked in Teresa greeted us with her signature warm welcome. She is just the sweetest and most hospitable person I've ever met. The ambience was so relaxing and... More

We have stayed at Oyster Bay each time we've visited the island. The first time we went we were advised by many, tourists and locals alike, that Big Fish was not a place for us to go for dinner, for the variety of reasons mentioned in old reviews. This time, we were told, as it was recently taken under new... More

***Under New Management*** South Beach meets the Caribbean - Big Fish is a hip, modern and upscale casual dining experience. The design is like nothing you will find anywhere in St.Maarten. The menu is diverse - with a focus on seafood. Many other options are available for the non-seafood eater including steak, chicken, pasta and vegetarian options. A kids menu is also available. Great sharing snacks, a diverse wine list with a variety of options by the glass and full bar. The service staff are attentive and eager to please. The Outdoor Patio is magnificent with a waterfall fountain, sexy lighting and cool music. The inside features a large comfortable bar and open kitchen concept where you can enjoy the "show". Come join us at Big Fish - don't miss out.
