Ruined the meal, not worth the cost despite the nice food. Would not go back, they need to replace her.

We are fussy about steak being cooked properly in restaurants and as a result are quite often disappointed. This was certainly not the case here, however. We had a fabulous meal and our steaks were cooked to perfection! The mussels starter was lovely, the cocktails...More

This restaurant was easy to get to in Rodney Mall and was recommended. The steak was delicious as was the clam chowder.The wine is expensive as is most wine in similar restaurants but there is a very wide choice.More

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to share your feedback, we're glad you enjoyed your meal. Unfortunately the cost of importing wine to the islands is high, which is why you do tend to pay more than you would in North America or Europe....More

We are at Big Chef twice. It was great both times and our waiter was so great. It was such a pleasant and fun experience. Great Pineapple Martini, skewers and their dessert special was Sticky Toffee pudding. So delicious.
