The best meal we had during our stay, and although not the cheapest was value for money. Service was attentive, and menu range excellent

“Excellent steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

We Went on a Saturday night for dinner (we made reservations but were told walk ins were ok).The restaurant itself is really nice and comfortable and we were made to feel welcome.The food was amazing and the staff were really friendly and chatty (especially Digna). We both had steak (which was cooked perfectly) which came with your choice of sides and an apple strudel between us. We also had a large bottle of water. They gave us some French baguette with grilled cheese and tomatoes on the house which was really tasty. The total bill came to roughly $117.00 US dollars.

We were staying at the smugglers cove resort and a return taxi fare was $30 US dollars.

“One of the best meals we have ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

We stayed at the Windjammer in St. Lucia and were told that this steakhouse was a great meal. It was such a great meal that we returned for a second night during our vacation. Our waitress Digna was amazing and took very good care of us.

“Better than American steak!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

We don't normally go for steak restaurants but all decided to push the boat out and eat here after popping in a few nights previously to have a drink in the separate bar area. We were not disappointed!! The steaks were all cooked exactly as asked for, super tasty and tender, the sides were great and the house red excellent. My husband who eats lots of steak in America - assures me this was much better

Thanks for the great review, and it's good to know Big Chef matches up to the international competition. We know that steak afficionados have high standards so the fact that our steak was given such a compliment by your husband is high praise indeed! Hope you will return and visit us again in future.

“Best steak ive ever had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

Made reservations though it didnt seem like they were needed. Had the filet with house salad, a perfect cabernet, and met the owner. She was warm and welcoming, it was a very pleasant evening. The bill for both of us with one glass of wine was $109, but you get what you pay for and i would pay for it again!
