We came to Mossel Bay to celebrate my father who passed away 05 July 2021, he loved mossel Bay and he loved visiting the point. We have so many fond childhood memories spending hours there. Big Blu was one of our favorite places to go...eat seafood and spend family time together. We arrived there 05 July 2022, only to feel like we were a inconvenience to the staff, they looked upset that we even arrived at the restaurant, we were greeted with mishrable faces. Eventually we were given a menu, after about 30minutes we asked for service..again it looked like a inconvenience to ask for a milkshake. They also advertised a Gatsby special on a Tuesday, which they adviterised the day before... Only to be told they can't make them they don't have the bread... Why advertise something you can't even make us? Nope won't recommend! We left and found a different gem on the beach with lively service and great food.More

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.
