“Off the Tourist Track”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

This restaurant is a perfectly off the tourist strips, with a seemingly local patronage. The seafood is fresh and delicious. Parking in the area is sparse, so consider the valet. The best deal yet is the Sun. extended happy hour. It lasts until 9pm with great deals on crab legs, shrimp, and oysters.

“Now that's a fish!”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner in this fine Orlando restaurant last week. I ordered the deep fried yellow tail snapper (see photo). I trully enjoyed this seldom seen dish. Our waiter was knowledable but perhaps a bit over anxious to process our order.

“Good shellfish choices”
Reviewed May 19, 2014 via mobile

If you like different types of shellfish it is a great place to eat. The large shellfish appetizer can make a meal for the table itself. The blue crab crusted grouper was a nice palate pleasing experience.

“Middling”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

We wanted to eat great fish and we were recommended the Big Fin. It's quite loud and informal with echoing accoustics but many good restaurants are. Our waitress initially looked vaguely threatening as if she'd had a bad day and didn't want any nonsense from the customers. Nevertheless she was totally efficient and quick and chilled out when we were super-friendly. The elderflower cocktail was fantastic. The menu was all made of fantastic ingredients but the food all had one major flaw- it was overcooked. We had a selection of about 40% of the whole menu. All, everything cooked looked as it had suffered just a little too much in the grill and had a slightly wilted and dry appearance. The swordfish fillet is the best piece of the fish but was slightly overdone and dark brown crusty at the edges. The grouper and crab is a great combination but was again just a bit too crusty. Not ridiculously but enough to annihilate the magic taste of the sea which permeates freshly caught fish and therefore make the experience just ordinary. The lobster was just ever so slightly overcooked again.We are Europeans and maybe we have a different taste but in London and Paris the best fish restaurants serve their fish a touch north of medium rare, juicy, ripe and shining, tasting of the ocean.
