How nice is that - and the food was excellent. We opted for a hake, calamari strips and prawns. Everything was cooked to perfection including the chips. We even got heated plates in the cold weather. Awsum service.

Big Blue is arguably the restaurant with the best views in the Mosselbay Waterfront (Point) area. From the deck area you have views of the iconic tidal pools (Die Poort Tidal Pool), the Mosselbay Zipline, the Cape St Blaize lighthouse and of course the magnificent...Indian Ocean. The restaurant is very relaxed with indoor and outdoor seating areas, and is decorated in a laid-back beach style - they even have swings at the bar for you to relaxed on. It is important to note, that even if you sit inside, you will still have a great view as they have big windows facing the ocean. We visited for lunch and it was very nice, but the highlight for me was the cocktails which added to the "beach vibe". The staff was also friendly and they followed the Covid regulations that were in place at the time.More

The big blue beach club has by far the most beautiful view of all the pubs in Mossel Bay. With a beautiful view of the ocean and people screaming while coming down the zip line the big blue is a must stop for a drink...and bite. With alot of activities around the big blue club from zip line and aquarium to hiking paths you will never be bored when your at the big blue.More

This restaurant is clearly popular but maybe because of its location. There were very few locals and those that were there generally only had drinks. The food was good but if I ever go back there again, it will be for the local and the...view. The seafood dishes are good.More

I think reviewers who are disappointed does not understand the concept of a beach bar. It is right where the zip liners land and is therefore part of the adventure spirit.

I didn't want to complain in the restaurant coz the waiter didn't make the food and the kitchen staff obviously don't care.

This restaurant is dirty, the municipality's health inspection section should do their job....!!! The service is none existing. We sat there for a solid 20 minutes, never received a menu and no waiter in sight. I went to the manager and asked for service and...menus. After 5 minutes a waiter came running with menus and dissapeared. After another 20 minutes, still no service. We left...what a shame, the views at this restaurant is spectacular. There is a lack of interest in this restaurant. It is a sad a rundown place. Don't waste your time.More

I thought this dump was supposed to have been renovated. Looks as dirty and run down as ever to me. Couldn't tell you what the food is like since we had one drink and ran before something could crawl onto us.
