We were 3 people dining together and the fish for sure are cooked from frozen and has been lying in the fridge for long because it tasted like fridge. This was a disgusting meal and i cannot believe you get this standard of fish at a seafood restaurant right on the ocean! Do not eat there! All you can expect is disappointment. The waiter could also at least have asked if we enjoyed our meal or not. This restaurant has gone backwards.

We went to Big Blu Restaurant for a Brunch, ordered coffee and a Juice and got it in a reasonable time. We then ordered a meal. I asked our waiter twice when we were getting our food and he said they were just dishing up and that it was coming. After +-45 minutes we still didn't have our food so decided to pay for the drinks and leave. None of the staff were very worried about us leaving without eating. This is not at all acceptable especially as we want to attract people to Mossel Bay.

After reading such good reviews we were keen to enjoy a great meal. Our order was taken and I asked how long it would take. 15-20 minutes they said. 2 hours later, with 4 families who had arrived arrived after us, served before us we left. The last time I looked I was not invisible. I will not go there again.

Scruffy, sticky tables and floor, but good, fresh seafood and a terrific view over the rocks. Just a beach bar really, but fine for a simple lunch.
